You have the open air museum called Skansen, the amusement park called Gröna Lund and the new Abba museum; which are all great. Skansen is perfect for kids, or if you have a strong desire to see a moose. Gröna Lund is fun, and have a lot of concerts with both swedish and international acts. And the Abba Museum tells the story about the group and of swedish pop music in general. But the most loved place is Rosendals trädgård. It's a garden open for visitors, and if the wheather's nice there's no better place for having coffee and eating cinnamon rolls than under it's trees and between it's hedges.

Royal Djurgården is wonderful all year round! Now, in the summer, I would recommend you to go for a walk around the entire island of Djurgården. Along the route are ice cream stands, hot dogs stands, but also wonderful restaurants. One of my favorite places is Rosendahls Gardens. If you are more fond of visiting museums Djurgården is full of them; Liljevalch Nordic Museum, The ABBA Museum, Theilska Museum and the Vasa Museum just to name a few. For the kids, it is a must to visit the open air museum Skansen as well as the home of Pippi Longstocking, Junebacken!

The amusement park Gröna Lund, is also a part of Djurgården. At Djurgårdsbron you can also rent paddle boats that can take you through the channel. A bit of fun and quirky way to get around on. The popular cafe KMK is located right next to the bridge.
