Stockholm's most popular cultural heritage museum reflects Sweden as a country and the changing seasons. Come to the heart of Stockholm, a dynamic open-air museum and animal park with something to offer visitors of all ages.

For many, Skansen is best known as an animal park - home to Nordic animals including moose, wolves, brown bears, seals and wolverines. Others come to explore Swedish cultural heritage by visiting the many houses and farm buildings from the 18th century onwards that have been transported here from all over Sweden. All the Swedish high days and holidays are celebrated here in traditional style - highlights are Midsummer and the Christmas market.

I Am the only one who thinks that Skansen is the dullest and most overrated place. Tourist trap, I think. One err around, and err and err.
Animals..... Pigs and lambs, asså man, have you never been to the land? These animals are practically like pets, one needs to really draw to Skansen fo... Show full »

How cozy any time, both summer and winter. There are not many zoos that you can be on all year round. There is so much to see and do. Go around and check on all animals, do different crafts, Christmas market and even the usual market in the summer. There is really a bit of each, and much as you migh... Show full »

Skansen is so hard to score correct, or even write something about. It is so big and you are there for so different reasons. Perhaps that is why I give such a good rating, because there is always something to do – for everyone.

I've been there at weddings among other things. The... Show full »

There will not be a visit to Skansen all too often, but once you are there you are grateful that there is such a place in Stockholm. A great haven where animals get to live well, you can go around for a long time, eat food in different places and enjoy nature and history. Nice in summer time but als... Show full »

Blir varm i kroppen när jag drömmer mig tillbaka till en tid Lasse stod på den här scenen. Alla regniga hemmakvällar under sommarlovet som präglades av han silkeslena stämma. Hur kan man kalla sig stockholmare och samtidigt tala illa om skansen? Va!?

One cannot help but to love the Redoubt!
Whether you come here in the winter in the beautiful Christmas market that takes you back to Sweden in the 18th-19th century or at the spring/summer when all animals are born and Sing kicks off.
I've been at Skansen, with both boyfriend, brother,... Show full »

Embarrassed that I haven't written about the Redoubt but it's so easy to just focus on the new without remembering the classic and always been there.

Skansen is great to visit all year round. The Christmas market is obviously best when it is a white blanket of snow on the ground,... Show full »

Skansen är ett riktmärke för Stockholm och det är fantastiskt. Har djur, kultur och restauranger. Jättebra för barn familjen. Tänk bara på att det är väldigt backigt och små barn tröttnar lätt på att gå då det ä... Show full »
