Gröna Lund Stockholm – Sweden
Gröna Lund is an amusement park in Stockholm, Sweden. It is located on the seaward side of the Djurgården island and is relatively small compared to other amusement parks, mainly due to its central location, which limits expansion. The 15-acre amusement park has over 30 attractions, and is a popular venue for concerts during the summer. Gröna Lund was founded in 1883 by James Schultheiss. Gröna Lund’s roots are in the 1880s, making it Sweden’s oldest amusement park. In 1883, a German by the name of Jacob Schultheiss rented the area to erect “carousels and other amusements”, and until 2001 descendants of Schultheiss ran Gröna Lund. Before the amusement park came into being, Gröna Lund was the name of a small park.
