See and do
Skansen is home to wild Nordic animals such as moose, lynxes, wolverines, seals and otters. A number of historically interesting rare breeds are also included in conservation projects. They are part of our agricultural heritage, showing how important animals were to the households of the past.
Walk from 1720 all the way into modern times in the Skansen “time machine” – meet the people from the past, and visit the houses, workshops and shops. In every building there´s interpreters in authentic dresses telling you what life was like in Sweden in the old days.
Sweden has four seasons, autumn, winter, spring and summer. The nature, wildlife and activities look different for each season. At Skansen, you can follow the year’s activities and celebrations throughout the year.
There are two guided tours available if you plan to visit Skansen as a group – “Skansen through time and history” and “Sweden´s wild animals at Skansen”.
Enjoy all the different possibilities for lunch, a “fika” or a traditional Swedish smorgasboard on one of the many cafés and restaurants on Skansen.
