Visiting Rosersberg is like taking a step back in time. Here you can discover an authentic royal environment from the turn of the 19th century. This summer there will be guided tours of the rooms, as well as another opportunity to see the exhibition of The Crown Princess Couple's wedding gifts.
King Karl XIV Johan and Queen Desideria, the first Bernadottes, were the last royal residents at the palace, and the rooms are largely unchanged since 1860. The palace is open to the public for tours from June to August. Groups can also book tours of the palace from May to September. How to get to Rosersberg.
See the Wedding Gifts exhibition this summerIn connection with the royal wedding, The Crown Princess Couple received many gifts. The exhibition, which was previously shown at the Royal Palace of Stockholm, can be seen this summer at Rosersberg Palace.
The exhibition can be seen in connection with regular tours of the palace, Tuesday to Sunday at 11:00, 12:00, 13:00, 14:00, 15:00 and 16:00, up until 31 August. The palace is only open for guided tours.
A selection of the thousands of gifts received will be shown in two of the rooms. A total of around 2,000 wedding gifts were received, with most of them coming from individuals who put a great deal of effort into their gifts: needlework, crafts and paintings, including personal greetings and wishes.
Most of the gifts on display are from the public, but there will also be a selection of official gifts. Gifts from all types of givers include items for The Crown Princess Couple's future household: kitchenware, glass, porcelain, cookery books and plants for Haga Palace.
