Fun at Gröna Lund isn’t over yet! Everyone’s favorite Tivoli opens its gates to visitors again to provide something spooky and fun for everyone.

If you’re planning on bringing the family, there is an autumn-themed pumpkin patch and friendly witches.

Looking for something a bit…scarier? The rest of the theme park is decked out and ready to scare the pants off of you.

Watch out for zombies, vampires, and who knows what from the underworld roaming the rest of the park. Bring an extra set of courage with you and get ready to scream.

The scary attractions include a haunted house, a house of nightmares, a haunted ship, and a zombie zone.

Due to safety concerns, tickets are limited, so be sure to book your tickets ahead of time.

Skansen is hosting family-friendly activities during the Stockholm school fall break (26 Oct – 30 Oct) and it might get a bit creepy.

The Old Town Quarter is suddenly struck by a mysterious illness and strange beings move from homes to farmsteads. What is really going on in the town and what will the townspeople do?

The cafes and restaurants will serve ghoulish delights, so bring your courage and your appetite.

Spooky tales will be told in Skasen’s cottages and Halloween/autumn-themed crafts are available for a fee of 30kr each.

Dates: 26 Oct – 30 Oct
