Haga Park

Haga Park is a royal and historical park situated in the Solna region, north of the charming city of Stockholm. The park itself is a popular nature area with ornate English style gardens, woodland and lakes. The park was founded by King Gustav III in the 18th century and still plays a prominent role to the Swedish monarchy. Today, the area is favored for recreation and is a common place for locals to enjoy. It is perhaps Sweden’s most popular park. 
 

Don’t leave without visiting a palace

The park has several historic buildings which you should try to check out before leaving. Haga Palace was built in the early 19th century and was formerly the Queen’s Pavillion. This was the residence for members of the Royal Family throughout the 19th century but since the 1960s, the house has been used to host guests of the government.  

In the summertime, the public have access to the interior rooms of another beautiful building, King Gustav III’s Palace. Guided tours are the best way to learn of anecdotes and the great history of both the palace and the park. The Temple of the Echo is a beautiful pavilion and if you are lucky enough, you may see some locals getting married as this is a popular wedding spot. 
 

Other things to do

Copper Tents were built in the 18th century to serve as housing for the King’s bodyguards and as stables. These magnificent tents were clad with a copper façade, the idea being that they replicate a Sultan’s tent. Today, these ornate tents serve as Haga Park Museum, documenting the park’s history and the famous royalty and dignitaries that have graced it with their presence. It is here you will also find a quaint café and restaurant. 

In the grounds you will come across a ruined castle, or more accurately, an abandoned construction project which is lovely to walk around. There is also a tropical butterfly house inside Haga Ocean with waterfalls and fish pools. Another way to pass the time is to take to the water with a relaxing boat tour or bike around the trails.

Stay with us at Park Inn by Radisson Solna Hotel and you will be within walking distance of this excellent outdoor area. Enjoy a fun day out in the fresh air, take in the beautiful surroundings and nature, combined with a bit of a Swedish history lesson.
