    Djurgarden

    by Erkmen Written May 5, 2003
    My wife at Bridge to Djurgarden.

    If you will have a chance of a nice weather, you can spent some time in Djurgarden and let your body feel free..

    In djurgarden there is a park where you can walk, rest and spent some time and also the Nordic Museum.

    There is a ferry crossing from Gamla stan to the island of Djurgarden and it operates in every 20 minutes. The cost for person is around 2,- USD.

    Go to Djurgardsbron to 'Skepp&Hoj'.
    Here you can rent:all kinds of boats (such as kayaks, kanoes and rowing boats), bikes and in-line skates.
    It's a wonderful, green area!
    Djurgarden has a wonderful park to skate. And is great to go with your boat. You can also stop over for a pcknick at the water side.

    Take a bus or walk to Djurgarden and visit The garden of Rosendal.
    They have deliscios pasterys, salads and sandwishes. If it's raining/snowing you can sit in the greenhouse-if not - sit in the garden. They also sell marmelade, lemonade on bottles, honey and more...
    It's very popular, among all ages- especially in the weekends.

    The perimeter boat cruise of Djurgaden. Skaansen itself and the Zoo
    The zoo is open, many animals are caged but there is an area where they are not, and the lemurs were incredible, as well as small monkeys which appearred very tame and were 12 inches away...no cages! This little guy is about five inches long excluding tail and the species is the smallest in the world.
    Skaansen is a fantactic outdoor museum, but there would have been more actiivity after April (in the summer)

    On Djurgården you can find lots of outdoor activities.

    'Gröna Lund' is the place for you if you want to have some fun. Amusementpark with some scaring attractions. If you're afraid of heights (like I am), don't even think about riding 'Fritt fall' (in english free falling), 80 metres of pure fear. But they also have a 6 metres 'Fritt fall' for children - more my kind of ride.

    Vasa museum - take a look at the warship that sank on its maiden voyage in 1628.

    Rosendals Gardens and Castle - stroll in the beautiful garden and have a 'fika' at the outdoor-café. Yummy sandwiches and lovely flowers.

    There are many more museums at Djurgården - Nordic Museum, Junibacken (Astrid Lindgren's world), Aquaria-Water museum etc.

    Djurgardsbron Bridge

    by bpwillet Updated Oct 30, 2003
    Stockholm Harbor from Djurgardsbron Bridge

    This is the bridge you will cross over to get to the Vasar Museum, the Nordic Museum and other gardens. It gives a great view across the harbour.

    See the park island Djurgarden or make a boat trip across the city. The views from the water are amazing and the most peaceful way to explore this city.

    Here you have an amusement park called 'Gröna Lund', you have a Zoo called 'Skansen'. You also have two big museums, the Vasa and Nordiska.
