Attractions along the line
The Vasa Museum
The royal ship Vasa sank on its maiden voyage in 1628. It was raised in 1961. Not only is the Vasa the world’s only preserved 17th-century ship, Vasamuseet is also the most visited museum in Scandinavia. Around the ship itself, there are also a number of exciting exhibits that depict life on board.
The Nordic Museum
If you are interested in Swedish cultural history, we recommend Nordiska museet. The museum displays Swedish trends and traditions from 1523 to today. The collection includes more than 1.5 million artifacts. The museum was founded in 1873 by Artur Hazelius, who also created Skansen.
Junibacken is a must for all children, grown-up or not! It includes the fantastic Fairy-Tale Train, where Astrid Lindgren’s well-known voice guides you on an unforgettable journey through all the popular tales she has created. Junibacken also has exhibits, a restaurant, a children’s theater, and a bookstore.
Abba The Museum
Come and enjoy an interactive journey through the life and times of one of the most successful pop groups in musical history. You’ll see what it feels like to be the fifth member of ABBA. The museum also features over 400 other Swedish musical artists, from Karl Gerhard to Avicii, and the legends of the Swedish Music Hall of Fame.
Exciting rides, cotton candy, and marvelous entertainment – Gröna Lund is the oldest amusement park in Sweden. There’s something here for all ages! Every year brings new rides and attractions. Take the chance, too, to take a walk behind Gröna Lund and experience the “Djurgården city.” It has beautifully preserved buildings from the middle of the 18th century.
Skansen is Sweden’s oldest open-air museum and Stockholm’s only zoo. All the Swedish traditions – Easter, Midsummer and Christmas – are celebrated here. Pay a visit to the Christmas market at Skansen, which dates to 1903, or sing out in the TV program Allsång på Skansen. And don’t miss the Nordic animals.
The last stop on Djurgårdslinjen is near one of Sweden’s most-visited art museums, Waldemarsudde. Prins Eugen, an art collector, landscape painter, and central figure in the cultural life of Sweden, lived here. The museum displays works from Waldermarsudde’s collections as well as temporary exhibitions with living artists. A well-regarded café and a shop are here as well.
