We stopped in as we were nearby. If you don't have kids with you and or they are not little then no point in going in. If you like gluten free pancakes and gluten free meatballs then jump on the storybook train and head over to the cafe! The little train is sweet and takes you around the stories of... More

While the train ride is a great way to get an overview of Astrid Lindgren's stories, the rest of the Junibacken is just an ordinary adventure playground. But definitely a nice day spend for kids. For adults only a nice place to be for big fans of the Lindgren stories.

You will be happy to see your child happy)) Must enjoy 12 minutes trip on a small train( something for people from 3 years old to 99)). Can take something to eat with you as well as buy it at the cafe inside.

We visited here with 2 children aged 12 and 7. They both enjoyed their time and would go back. The restaurant has very nice food and sweets however the lines can be quite long (although they do move relatively fast). Although very busy, finding a table was not too hard! If visiting I would suggest going on a day that... More

This place is quite expensive, but I do think you get your money's worth for at least one visit. I'm not sure we'll ever go back, though - the best part is the story train and the ticket only includes one ride. We ended up paying for a second, which drove up the price even more. Otherwise, we had a... More

Second visit to Junibacken with 4 and 9 year old kids. Both loved the place, specially the "story train" which we ended doing twice. I think the kids loved the place even more on the second round as they already "knew" the place. Some wear and tear can be seen on some places, but that is only for the adult... More

A wonderful museum if you are 40 or 6! It's fantastic, so nice. In the museum you can see all the characters that Astrid Lindgren created. There is a beautiful mini train that makes you flight and she tells you the story of each book at the same time you are watching what she is telling. The visit includes 2... More
