    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.

    The safari in the zoo was great. You go thru the safari with the bus you arrived with. We actually had to stop for a half an hour or so, cos 3 giraffes just stood in front of our bus and wouldn't move no matter what!
    Also you must see the dolphins. Unless you've seen them live in an ocean or something, you gotta see them, they're really cute!

    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 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.

    Find the Giraffe

    by DSwede Written Jul 24, 2011

    Something that is quite comical is a rather old dock crane painted up to look like a giraffe. After spotting it from a distance, when the ferry got closer, it looked even more appropriate.

    Take any ferry through the main channel of Saltsjön and look for it to be just a little east of the Tivoli park, on the island of Djurgården.

    A wonderful place to relax

    by travelthrough Updated Jun 10, 2010

    Djurgarden is full of parks and a wonderful place to walk and enjoy a nice warm afternoon. You can visit Skansen, Vasa and Nordiska Museums, or the art gallery of Prince Eugene, or even the small palace of Rosendal. The villas and residences built along the seashore are just amazing!

    Djurgarden is one of the islands that make up the city of Stockholm.It is a reen and pleasant area where many of the inhabitants go to relax.A lot of museums are located here and it is a very pleasant area to go walking or cycling.A tram runs from the city centre all the way around the island.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Djurgardsbron Bridge

    by bpwillet Updated Oct 30, 2003

    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.
