Perched on the edge of Djurgården with fantastic views across the water, Gröna Lund is Sweden's oldest amusement park. Built in 1883 and owned by the same family ever since, its historic buildings and well-preserved rides retain an old-world charm. Older (and tamer) favourites such as carousels, bumper cars, Ferris wheels and a fun house are on offer alongside more modern (and daring) rides such as Europe's highest free-fall 'power tower'. Harry Potter fans will appreciate the park's newest ride, 'Kvasten' ('The Broomstick'), a family rollercoaster that carries riders on suspended carriages beneath the tracks, feet dangling in the air, giving them the sensation of flying on a magic broomstick. The park is also a baby-friendly place, with pram ramps on all the stairs and a Happy Baby Centre for feeding and soothing tots. Note that on concert nights it costs more to get in.
