Visiting Stockholm with kids? This itinerary is for families who enjoy nature, good food and are interested in Scandinavian design. The day begins with lunch or a snack at Rosendals Trädgård. This is a gorgeous biodynamic garden, café and shop in the heart of Djurgården (The Royal Game Park), a large park in the city center. Start off at Rosendals Café with a delicious, organic meal produced with locally-sourced ingredients. Once your tummies are satisfied, browse the greenhouses which are filled with beautiful flowers and plants, also for sale. Next, peruse the shop for some edible gifts or souvenirs. Afterwards, pick your own bouquet from a giant field of flowers. In addition to the flowers, an apple orchard with lots of green space, as well as a playground, is also located on the grounds. From here, you can take a leisurely walk through the lovely natural surroundings of Djurgården back into the city center. When back in the center, stroll along the waterfront to enjoy views of boats and the city skyline. The final stop is at Svenskt Tenn, an iconic Stockholm favourite for interior design classics. There is also an outdoor ice cream kiosk to keep the little ones happy while mom or dad browse for that special Scandinavian keepsake. This day in Stockholm with kids offers Swedish nature and design to energize and inspire.
