Something for the kids

Nyköping loves children. The cycle route between the playground and the public pool is safe for cyclists of all ages. It’s rare to have to queue for a long time for any activity; most things go quickly with little wait. 

Have fun at Palstorps adventure farm

Visit Palstorps adventure farm, where fun and adventure mix with relaxation and family time. You can take on the challenge of one of the five obstacle courses, learn more about animals and nature along the nature path or climb onto a tractor seat and whoosh down the cableway. 

Palstorp is a destination for the who­le family. Of course there are a lot of pos­sibilities for play and activities in the huts, trees for climbing and obstacle courses that children love, but parents and other adults can also have fun here. Play a tricky round of 9-hole football golf, compete against the kids in the big obstacle course or barbeque your lunch while the children play by them­selves. 

Why not stay the night in one of the huts in the wood! 

Kolmården - the largest wildlife park in Scandinavia

Kolmården is home to more than 750 animals from all over the world, and the wildlife park is one of Scandinavia’s most popular destinations. Kol­mården has something for the whole family, including world-class shows and displays with dolphins and birds of prey, the world’s biggest wooden rollercoaster and, of course, The World of Bamse.

For children, the World of Bamse is definitely not to be missed, where they can meet the world’s kindest bear and his friends. New this year is Bamse’s flying carpet! 

Öster Malma Wildlife Park 

The baroque Öster Malma Manor is surrounded by rolling fields and forests. Enjoy a fine meal with local products in the modern restaurant. Visit the 25 hectares Wildlife Park with moose, red deer and fallow deer!


I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! 

Children love ice cream and in Nyköping’s harbour there are lots of different varieties to choose from. A stroll along the harbour in the summer is a must when you are in Nyköping. You and your children can watch the boats bobbing at the quay, chase the birds playing in the water and marvel at the bustling restaurants and cafes.

Things can get a bit wild at the playground along the harbour promenade. Children can swing from the ropes and masts of the pirate ship, climb high up the spider’s web and build fairytale castle in the sand. Children of all ages will find something to play with here
