Djurgårdsbrunnskanalen (Swedish: "The Canal of Djurgården Spring") is a canal in central Stockholm, Sweden, separating the island Djurgården from the northern mainland (or more correctly Southern and Northern Djurgården).
The canal stretches a kilometre from Lilla Värtan to Djurgårdsbrunnsviken allowing ships 9,5 metres wide and 2,1 metres deep to pass. Two bridges pass over the canal: Djurgårdsbrunnsbron and Lilla Sjötullsbron.
The decision to build the canal was taken by King Charles XIV in 1825. The canal was completed in 1834
