Royal Walks: Djurgården

The Royal Walks app guides you along a scenic stroll through Djurgården, from Djurgården Bridge and along the waterfront to the Royal summer palace, Rosendal.

The route takes in sculptures, buildings, historical sites and events.

The Bernadotte Walk tells of the significance of the Bernadotte dynasty for Royal Djurgården – all of the seven Bernadotte kings have links to the area. Find out about the king who constructed Rosendal Palace and its surrounding parkland, the king who celebrated his silver jubilee with a world exhibition, and the king who inaugurated the world’s first National City Park.

The Waterline Walk stretches from Djurgården Bridge along the shore in the direction of Rosendal. Along the way we pass the “Swedish Nightingale”, and learn about the people and events that gave Jägarbackarna and Villa Godthem their names.

Djurgården Buildings Walk starts with the bridge (Djurgården Bridge) and ends with king Karl XIV:s palace Rosendal. Along the 1,9 km walk we will pass many unique houses, exhibition pavilions and villas.

The app also allows you to create your own walks to suit your interests, with the categories Garden and nature, Buildings and constructions, Royal, Places and events and Sculptures.
