TLDR: Play and explore areas (Sagotorget and Villa Villekulla) are AMAZING if you are familiar with the stories. Story train (Sagotåget) however is scary. It's well made and you will be wowed, but at least the kids I've visited there have all been scared. We have visited Stockholm with our kids many times, but never visited Junibacken 'cause I remember... More

We made a short visit to junibacken and for kids at the right ages this can be fun. Check them out online first to make sure you and your kids know about the different stories and characters that can be found there or you may find yourself visiting a place with no interest for you. It's not a huge attraction... More

The idea of Junibacken is really great! But it is not. You pay a lot of money and you pretty much get nothing. You get a ride through some of Astrid Lindgren's most known stories. And thats's it.

As an adult i constantly explore places where my children will get inspired and dream. Talk what's possible. This is one of those places they enjoyed enormously, discussing passionately fairy tale characters and admiring the way everything is done. I recommend it to everyone

Not cheap with around €60 for the family, gives about 3 hours of fun. Storytrain is nice and available in many languages. Pipi's villa is amazing!

Even if you dont love Astrid Lindgren this place is magic! My children loved it, we went there a coppel of times every year. You just dont get tired of th elittle train going through a magic landscape , Villa villerkulla and the other playful exhibitions. Everywhere you can play, climb, try out and interact. Warmly recommended!

This indoor amusement park is centered around the universe of Swedish children's book author Astrid Lindgren, possibly the most admired Swede of the 20th century. It offers great fun for kids from 2 to 10 and their parents, with a tunnel tour, a visit of places depicted in Astrid Lindgren's books - especially Pippi Långstrump or Pippi Longstocking - and...

We went there for the first time with our 2 yo boy and he loved it, there are 2 big rooms with lots of small houses, places to discover and hide. There is a restaurant inside (good choice of dishes, meatballs with potatoes purée, soup, salads, pastries etc). You will also find a library , perfect to find children books.... More

Astrid Lindgren's characters are wonderfully represented. The train journey turns into a miracle: you fly over Emil's lawn, and turn round and "enter" Karlsson's house... It impresses even those who are not fond of these books. We loved the performance next to Villa Villekulla. I plan to come back with my grandchildren!
