The Lillskogen zoo

Lillskogen is Mariebergsskogen’s own little zoo, home to all kinds of Swedish farm animals, including adorable rabbits, little ponies, cute potbelly pigs, goats and calves. Chickens roam the Stallbacken yard freely and scratch in the gravel. The animal house for small creatures has polecats, guinea pigs, hamsters and rats. It also has exotic birds as well as aquariums of colourful fish from around the world. Ducks and geese swim around the duckpond. On cold winter’s days, the animals are housed in the stables, where a warm welcome awaits visitors. Watch out for your hands and fingers when saying hello. Many of the animals have horns, hard heads and sharp teeth. Please read the information boards in Lillskogen. The animals at Lillskogen are looked after by students of animal care at Lillerud upper secondary school.

Questions about wild animals

Do you have any questions about wild animals? The staff at Lillskogen are often asked what to do if you find an injured animal. They don’t always have the knowledge or the time to answer these questions. We would therefore ask you to contact Maud Fransson at animal charity Djurens Vänner on 070-469 32 11, if you have found an injured animal.

Opening times

Lillskogen is open daily, all year round.
