Växthuset at Skansen

The Greenhouse

Next to Skånegården and Fjärilsträdgården lies Skansen’s two greenhouses. They are both of the Swedish Greenhouse model and are approximately 22 square meters and 26 square meters respectively.

Skansen: The world’s oldest open-air museum

Skansen is a favorite both among Stockholmers and visitors passing through, and it’s a perfect family outing. This is the oldest open-air museum in the world and also the Stockholm zoo, with animals native to Scandinavia. 

Skansen is beautifully located on Royal Djurgården and sports spectacular views over all of Stockholm. This is also a Sweden in miniature. 150 farms and dwellings from different parts of the country were disassembled and transported here. Swedish traditions such as Midsummer, Walpurgis Night and Lucia are celebrated at Skansen.
