    Lunch Companion

    by hevbell Updated Oct 9, 2011

    Fondest memory: While having an outdoor lunch at one of the picnic areas at Skansen we made a new friend. Something tells me he really only liked us for our food though :/ He was pretty tame and quite happy eating out of the hand of a girl at the next table. Its not often you see red squirrels here in the UK anymore so its nice to see they are still around in Sweden!

    Christmas market at Skansen.

    Favorite thing: Every year you can visit Skansen and it´s Christmas market. It is a popular tradition and I have been here one year and I would like to come back at another opportunity. It was very interesting and exciting thing. They sold home made things every where and many different kind of handycraft shops, and also it was to go back in the history. It was like amovie to be there, because the people who worked there was dressed up in old clothes and behaved like that. Very good for families and couples.

    Fondest memory: When I attended this Christmas market I was really satisfied with their events and engangemang. It was very good, and many good things were sold, of the best quality.

    Important if you visit Skansen AND Biology Museum

    Biology Museum

    Favorite thing: If you want to visit both Skansen Open Air Museum AND the Biology Museum, then your entrance to the Biology Museum is included with the entrance of your Skansen ticket. HOWEVER, you MUST visit the Biology Museum FIRST!

    Inside the Biology Museum (located next to Skansen in the Royal Garden), there are different collections of stuffed wildlife--higharctic wildlife and Swedish wildlife. Perhaps most interesting is the building itself, because it looks more like a Norwegian church than a museum.

    Museum is open from 10 AM - 3 PM April-September.

    Favorite thing: A moose that we found at Skansen!

    I was so happy to see a moose...they are MUCH bigger than I expecte!! :) If you have never seen a real moose make sure you see this one...he is really beautiful, and he makes the cutest noises! ;) We had to wait a few minutes for him to come out of his hut but it was worth the wait.

    Reindeer at Skansen

    Favorite thing: Here's a reindeer we came across at Skansen.

    Beware - the reindeer section was very smelly but I just had to get a photo of a real reindeer! ;)

    He's kind of cute...even though he REALLY stunk...
