Home to museums, galleries, monuments, and plenty of green space, Djurgarden is an island with lots of green space that's beloved by both tourists and locals.

You'll find cafes and restaurants on the grounds, as well as well-known museums, art galleries, and historical buildings, like Carl XI's hunting lodge. The area is also home to the amusement park Gröna Lund and the open-air museum Skansen. More than ten million people visit annually.

  • The Green Island of Djurgården, close to central Stockholm, is beloved by both Stockholmers and tourists. Djurgården is a calm oasis that has been Royal land since the fifteenth century. There are lovely areas to walk, for example around the Djurgårdsbrunn Canal and blockhusudden. Djurgården is also home to many of the city's top museums and attractions, as well as enjoyable cafés and restaurants. It is easy to reach Djurgården on foot, with the djurgården ferry boat from Gamla Stan/Slussen, by tram from Norrmalmstorg or by bus.

  • very easily accessible on foot from the city centre, alternatively with the tram. A beautiful park on the water is located, close to downtown and very calm. Adjacent to the great Skansen Park, opposite is at the entrance to the natural history museum and behind the Vasa.

  • Can recommend a walk along the water on the South side, start at Junibacken. The walk then goes along the piers and shipyards (it may take a small detour past the Gröna Lund amusement park) to the scenery at Waldemarsudde.
