Great stately oaks and the old-world pastoral landscape towards Lake Mälaren give the area a unique character. Here, both the plant and animal life are extremely rich.
The park is open year round.
Gustav Vasa reinforced the importance of horses here, by raising horses for Sweden´s army.
The palace, gardens and parks have been formed and fashioned by royalty since the middle of the 1500s.
During the summer months many concerts and weddings are held here. As well as a few key horse riding competitions.
Many of the trees lining the avenues are old and decrepit and a number have disappeared since the 1970s. Even many of the bushes and hedges are gone.
The area protected both as a nature reserve and a state historical building heritage and is been preserved and brought to life for future generations.
At the present time preservation work is ongoing, as is an information program, future planning, tree renewal and restoration.
