In 1965, the Kolmården Zoo (Kolmårdens Djurpark) opened close to this railway station. Being a well-visited zoo overall, the main attraction is the first Dolphinarium in Scandinavia, opened 1969, with a popular daily show (also giving name to the nearby basketball team Norrköping Dolphins). The dolphinarium opened during the spring that year with the new "Marine World". Since 1972 there is a Safari park in which you can drive with your own car. Since 1998 there is also Bamses Värld, an attraction devoted to cartoon character Bamse. The tiger house has recently been renovated and the elephants that belong to the king of Sweden are situated in Kolmården Zoo.
