Great place for young children..

Children loved the story train and didn't wanted to leave unless we took it another round. Visited on a cold snowy winter day and spent almost all day there..

Took a grumpy three year old there and amazing the transformation as soon as he walked in. So much to do for kids and the ride is amazing! Really worth visiting with small kids and perfectly set up for non Swedish speakers.

Junibacken is nice, easy to travel to but small and it gets crowded very fast. When crowded it is very hard to move around and has limited seating

Junibacken is an excellent activity for families with small children. The activities are all based on Swedish children's books, and there's plenty of interactive things to do and little nooks to explore. If you speak Swedish there is also a nice range of programmes, like short plays and children's songs. The book store is great. I was also very impressed... More

A surprising nice world or children's stories, Swedish ones of course. Children and adults get to step into the worlds of Pettson and Findus, Pelle, Alfons, Pippi Long Stocking and Mummin troll among many others. The rooms are relatively large enough but can get really crowded during peak days like weekends and holidays. I love that they have at least... More

For children of every age, the lovely, slow indoor train ride through the writer Astrid Lindgren's fairytales is a must. The whole Junibacken is good fun for the tiny 'uns but the train is worth visiting for adults, too. It takes about 10 minutes but is worth every krona.

Beautiful, exciting place for little people. Hours of fun and play in the surroundings we all know from wonderful Astrid Lindgren story books. A very pleasant visit for an adult as well.

Easily one of the best things I could've taken a three year old to. Hours of entertainment for a small price. Stroller friendly and ok for the kids to run wild.

I've been here many times but this does not get boring even to adult and my kids really love this as Sagotorget is lot of fun things to do but the real fantasy experience is the ride! It's good even if you haven't read your Astrid Lindgrens but the more you know the better it gets. House of Pippi is... More
