JunibackenTop 10

The “Junibacken” museum on the Djurgarden peninsula immerses its young and old visitors in the world of books by Astrid Lindgren and other Swedish children’s authors.

The aim of the museum, which opened in 1996, was to create an interactive venue for Swedish children’s literature in which all generations could find themselves. The name “Junibacken” is derived from the “Madita” books by Astrid Lindgren and refers to the estate where Madita grows up (in German translations the estate is called Birkenlund).

The museum consists of three areas:


The “Fairy Tale Square” is the first area of the museum and is dedicated to the heroes of Swedish children’s literature. Some of the lovingly designed representations are also extremely popular in Germany, e.g. Petterson and Findus, Mama Moo and the Crow, Willy Werkel (Mulle Meck) and Willi Wiberg(Alfons Åberg) . Children can play here, touch things and immerse themselves in the world of their favourite books.


The “Fairytale Train” is the real attraction of Junibacken and is dedicated to the stories of Astrid Lindgren. Visitors are transported in small wagons through lovingly hand-modelled worlds of Madita, Michel from Lönneberga, Ronja the Robber’s Daughter, Karlsson from Doch and the Brothers Lionheart.

Villa Kunterbunt

When you get off the fairytale train, you reach Villa Kunterbunt, the home of Pippi Longstocking.
