Amazing Places to Celebrate Your Child’s Birthday in Stockholm

90% of people would prefer to celebrate their birthday with friends, and it is common for a child’s birthday party to be with classmates and loved ones. Often there is a traditional Princesstårta, a sponge cake that is covered with a deceiving layer of green marzipan. There will be singing of Ja, må han/hon leva – the Swedish happy birthday song – and some games and presents. There are some amazing places in Stockholm that you can celebrate your child’s birthday, even if you have a limited budget. Make the most of the scenery and great food that you will find in the city. 

Kungsträdgården Park

Kungsträdgården (Jussi Björlings allé, Stockholm) is a popular park in the city that is perfect to celebrate your child’s birthday. You could arrange for one of the many outdoor cafes and food stands to do the catering, or even bring a big picnic. There are plenty of places where you can get some birthday ice-cream too. The winter months are particularly good for a birthday party, as there is an outdoor skating rink that can be enjoyed by anyone. There is a wonderful atmosphere; all you need to do is hire some skates.

O’Leary’s Bar

If your child loves their sports and physical activities, then O’Leary’s (several locations) is a great place for a birthday party. It is a good idea to get your child a gender-neutral birthday gift like a football or tennis set. Gender-neutral toys have always existed and are suitable for everyone without stereotyping. This sort of present is good for a boy or girl and will fit in perfectly with your sports party theme. At O’Leary’s the children can take part in some fun team activities.  Different O’Leary’s locations have different activities from mini golf, laser tag, climbing walls and bowling to the very cool Prison Island at the Kungens Kurva one. They can also choose to do gaming as part of the birthday party with some great arcade and sports machines, including basketball and air hockey. Once the kids have tired themselves out O’Leary’s offer a birthday party buffet including ice cream and pancakes.

Delta Force Paintball

If you’re looking for something completely different for your older child’s birthday, then Delta Force Paintball (Runstens Gard, Grödinger)  is a great experience that is fun and healthy. Paintballing is particularly popular with teenage children and young adults. They can enjoy a whole day’s paintballing wearing a special forces combat suit with full head and body protection. The game zones which include “Enemy at the Gates” and “Jungle Attack” have been inspired by Hollywood movies. There is specialist tuition from experts on teamwork, communication, strategy and handling a paintball gun.
