Djurgården Tips (29)

Stockholm Stadion - home of Djurgården

Stockholm Stadion is the oldest stadium in Stockholm, built and used for the Olympic Summer Games in Stockholm 1912.
The stadium should be re-built a bit during this winter, to be a bit more modern.
Djurgården-supporters stands on the long side, while there is also a sitting group of singing supporters at section F, on the other side of the stadium.
Away-supporters stand in a big sector in one of the curve.
Unfortunately, as it was used during the Olympics, the stadium has running-tracks around the pitch. That makes the arena much less genuine, and it’s not among my favourite-stadiums in Sweden.
Best seats for a e neutral should be on the long-side stand, as much in the middle as possible. If you want to stand up I suggest you go to the other side of the stadium, where you’ll find standing places, but still with quite good view.

Try to stand away from the curves, the away-section included, as you’ll have a couple of kilometers from there to the pitch…

Djurgården (The Animal Garden) is a recreational isle in the middle Stockholm.

This is the site of the Wasa Museet, the museum of the old ship the Wasa. And also the Gröna Lund, the amusement park can be found here.

But the main part of the isle is just a quiet park in which you don't have a clue that you are even in a city. Only the sporadic horn of a big ship will let you remember that you are in the city.

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.

A wonderful place to relax

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!
