Morfar, dotter och litet barnbarn fikar tillsammans på bryggan till Naturum Värmland. I bakgrunden syns vattnet glittra, näckrosor och vassen på strandängarna.


Mariebergsskogen offers several tempting options when you feel in need of food or refreshments. And if you have your own food, simply sit down in a lovely spot in the park and enjoy a picnic.

Café in Naturum Värmland

The café serves a soup of the day with bread and toppings, pancakes for the children and delicious sandwiches. If you fancy a snack, there is plenty to choose from and it is all home-made. You decide whether to sit out on the jetty or indoors – either way it feels like being in the middle of the countryside. Open all year round. Click here to read more about the café.

Spikgården waffle café

Our early 19th-century log cabin is the place to relax in an old-world setting. The staff, in their historic costumes, serve freshly-made waffles with jam and cream, hot dogs, buns, ice cream, coffee and other drinks. Open May-September.


The kiosk serves hot dogs, coffee, sweets, cooling drinks and ice cream. We also sell Fairtrade coffee, milk/sugar-free ice cream and soya hot dogs. Open May-September and December-February.

Barbecue sites & picnics

There are various barbecue sites around the park – at Acksjöns Kapell, Spikgården, Gammelgården and the beach – and if you contact us in advance we can put out some firewood. If you have a disposable barbecue, there are special bins to put them in once they have stopped burning.

Under cover

If you need a little shelter from the rain, there is a summerhouse in the upper playground, three summerhouses in the Play Garden and a few umbrellas outside Holken where you can avoid the worst showers.

Allergies etc

The kiosk sells Fairtrade coffee, milk/sugar-free ice cream and soya hot dogs. The café in Naturum Värmland serves an allergy-free range of cakes that contain no egg, gluten, sugar, milk or lactose. Ask our staff for more information!
