  • Taka a walk, go for a coffee, bring your lunch and enjoy the beautiful Slottsskogen. Take your kids to the free zoo or just catch some sun on the fantastic lawns.  more »
  • Nice oasis in the city-with paths, streets and restaurants. Nice park in a big city. Was a lot of people, besides US contestants, who used the area!!!
