Gröna Lund amusement park

Gröna Lund amusement park is situated by the water on Djurgården island in Stockholm.

In 1883, the amusement park Gröna Lund opened. The idea to open an amusement park in Stockholm right on Djurgården came from Jacob Schultheis. He came from Germany and had already been to Gothenburg and previously had various entertainment specializations there. But after complaints and other reasons, he closed his business and went to Stockholm. Here he rented the land where Gröna Lund is located. It started as a small amusement park but today it is a large amusement park.

During the 19th century, it was quite common with small amusement parks a bit everywhere in Stockholm. These were places that suited everyone who wanted to enjoy dance, variety, carousels and good food. It was a bit of an escape from the rather heavy everyday life. But when the city's inhabitants increased, land was needed to build more homes and in 1901 only Gröna Lund remained..

Love between competing amusement parks
In 1923, a competing amusement park opened opposite Gröna Lund called the Amusement Park. The owner of the amusement park Johan Lindgren had a son named John who fell in love with Gröna Lund, the then owner's daughter Ninni. But they kept their romance a secret. It was not until the two amusement park owners passed away that they became public and they married in 1942. The amusement park closed in 1957. They continued to run Gröna Lund together. Today, Gröna Lund is part of the Parks & Resorts Scandinavia Group.

Music scene with world artists
Gröna Lund is known for its music scenes and all the celebrities who have performed here through the ages. Artists who have performed here include Birgit Nilsson, Evert Taube, Paul Anka, Jerry Williams, Tom Jones, The Hives, ABBA, ZZ Top, Marilyn Manson and Bob Marley, Carola, Billy Idol and others.

Gröna Lund rides
There are about thirty rides, including 7 roller coasters. Gröna Lund continuously renews its attractions, but some old ones remain and are still a bit popular today, such as. Lustiga Huset, Kärlekstunneln and Cirkuskarusellen from 1892. But for those who want a little more breathtaking, fast-paced and tingling-in-the-stomach feeling can give you the slightly newer attractions like Eclipse (the world's tallest swing at 121 meters), Fritt Fall, Insane, JetlineTwister and Ikaros. In addition to rides, there are haunted houses, games and wheel of fortune, restaurants and stages where most famous artists perform every year.
