Skansen

Visit Skansen, the world's oldest open-air museum, founded in 1891 on the island Djurgården. Here you can experience five centuries of Swedish history and traditional celebrations to mark occasions such as Walpurgis Night, Christmas and Midsummer.

You will also get the chance to see wild and domestic Nordic animals, enjoy a meal in one of the restaurants with breathtaking views over Stockholm, and buy traditional handicrafts and Swedish design products.

Easy boat transfer from the terminal to Djurgården with M/S Emelie, tickets available via Viking Line.

Living history

Over 150 dwellings and other buildings from all over Sweden have been dismantled and reassembled in an area of 300,000 m2 at Skansen. You can travel back in time and meet people from the past. On summer evenings you can also come along and watch traditional Swedish folk dancing!

Skansen Zoo

At Skansen you will find both domestic and wild Nordic animals such as reindeers, elks and lynx. Don't miss the guided tours in English during the summer! Our newly opened Children's Zoo gives youngsters the opportunity to meet a variety of interesting animals.
