Visit the summer palace of Rosendal
Rosendal Palace was built on the island of Djurgården between 1823 and 1827 for King Karl XIV Johan. Rosendal was a summer residence, a place for retreat and for enjoying the beautiful natural surroundings.
There are guided tours of Rosendal Palace during the summer months, from June to August, every day except Monday, at 12 noon, 1 pm, 2 pm and 3 pm.
Rosendal Palace is a unique representation of the Swedish Empire style. Take a guided tour and see how the interior of the palace has been preserved, largely the same today as it was during the time of Karl XIV Johan. The interior is characterised by mahogany furniture, fitted carpets and curtains in bold colours.
Fredrik Blom was commissioned by the royal court to design and build the palace. The building was constructed using prefabricated sections.
