Genuinely beloved by Stockholmers, Djurgården is a beautiful island park stuck in the middle of Stockholm between Gamla Stan, Södermalm and Östermalm. The island takes many forms ranging from garden and farm to forest and harbour. It’s also overstocked with galleries and museums, an amusement park and even a zoo.

You can easily spend a week here. But if you have to choose just one museum, we recommend Junibacken, a children’s museum dedicated to fiction, in particular the work of Astrid Lingren. If you’re looking for a good meal and an outoor romp, head to Rosendals Trädgård.

About author

Small Folk Travel

Small Folk Travel is a family travel site by mama and travel writer Taraneh Jerven. The Jerven family (two toddlers, one bun in the oven) travels incessantly. When researching our trips, we couldn't find the family travel coverage we were looking for. We did our own research. We wrote the family travel guides ourselves. Taraneh Jerven writes for international travel publishers including and DK Eyewitness Travel. We cover good stuff for discerning parents and their little ones. Often these overlap. If they don't, we take turns.
