Stockholmers are obsessed with nature, and nowhere is better than Djurgården’s tranquil waterside and woodland trails. If you’re into your art and history, this island also boasts several of the capital’s most significant museums. At the open-air Skansen, stroll through five centuries of Swedish houses and farmsteads and observe wild Nordic animals. The Vasa Museum is home to a giant 17th-century salvaged ship, while ABBA: The Museum combines nostalgic memorabilia with quirky interactive exhibits. And choruses, obviously.
Time Out tip: Food options in Djurgården are pricey, so pack a picnic and tuck in on the waterfront behind the Vasa Museum, or find a spot off one of the grassy trails.
