Family Fun in Stockholm

An absolute must if you are coming to Stockholm sometime in your life (which of course you have to) is a visit to Junibacken.

Maybe you know Astrid Lindgren? The creator of great Pippi L√•ngstrump aka. Pippi Longstocking. Junibacken is her world and also the world of other great Swedish childrens book authors. They have built like a mini book world- imagine Disneyworld petite and with great style. It’s a pleasure to bring the kids there. Or they love it! I mostly go nuts with 1 billions kids running around but I do enjoy the craftmanship of the interiors and scenography.

They have a great little giftshop and a restaurant with a cookietable that beats the craziest Willy Wonka imagination (and naturally they sell Pippis pancakes!)

As a little girl with long red hair, I absolutely adored Pippi Longstocking! Who knew she had her own theme park? One more reason to visit Stockholm.

I think I’ll wear my hair in braids today in her honor ;)


Oh my goodness, thank you so much for posting this! We’ll be in Sweden this summer and were already planning a trip to Junibacken with our two little girls, but now I can show them pictures! xo

oh pippi! brings me back to the days where i would rent that movie EVERY TIME we went to the video store when i was a wee one. so darling!


…just be warned that it is expensive…and much more suited to little ones! (my brother and I were 12 and 10…and while it was cool, it was not worth the kroner for us)


If you liked Junibacken, I must recommend “Astrid Lindgren’s World” which is a big fairyland, that is based on Astrid Lindgren’s all stories. I loved it when I was a kid. It’s located like three and a half hours, south of Stockholm, in a city called Vimmerby. Check it out,
