Stockholm: Family Holiday
Venice of the North
Stockholm has much to offer as a family holiday destination. Stockholm’s safety, large number of parks, a family city beach (Smedsuddsbadet, near Fridhemsplan metro station) and two theme parks make Stockholm a particularly family friendly holiday destination. Gröna Lund on Djurgården is a more or less typical amusement park, while nearby Junibacken, where the characters of Astrid Lingren’s books such as Pippi Longstocking come to life, offers a more fairy tale-like atmosphere. Nearby nature locations, such as the stunning Stockholm Archipelago provide great holiday excursions during family holidays in Stockholm.
