Revel in magnificent Djurgården Game Park
Djurgården, officially called the “Kungliga Djurgården”, the Royal Game Park, is a historical parkland located on an island in the center of Stockholm. It is home to many of the city’s finest attractions, including historic museums, galleries and of course the famous Gröna Lund amusement park. The combination and variety of activities found here is what makes Djurgården Stockholm’s favorite recreational area. More than 10 million people visit the area yearly, and more than half spend their time at the amusement park and museums.
Exploring the island on footKnown for its many beautiful green spaces, Djurgården is best enjoyed by talking a short walking tour. An enjoyable way to reach the park is on one of the city’s historical trams built in the first half of the 20th century. Once across the Djurgårdsbron Bridge, beautifully decorated with old Norse gods, the noise of the city is replaced by the sounds of nature and people enjoying themselves in Djurgården. In addition to being a prime spot for a leisurely walk, the area is perfect for biking as well as kayaking along the canals. The game park serves as a fresh breath of air and a picturesque escape from the bustling city life.
