Junibacken review Rate it

A favourite haunt of local kids and a top tourist attraction, Junibacken is a mini indoor theme park devoted to Pippi Longstocking and other characters created by Swedish author Astrid Lindgren. Take a fairytale train ride (ask for narration in English) that crosses miniature fictional landscapes, flies over rooftops and passes through quaint Swedish houses. On the upper floor kids are welcome inside Pippi's house, Villa Villekulla, where they can dress up like Pippi, slide down the roof and wreak general havoc. Stories by other writers feature, too, and activities include storytelling and visits from some of the storybook characters. For those who are unfamiliar with Swedish children's books, there's a very good shop that carries many of the better-known titles in translation.
