The Park and Gardens at Prins Eugens Waldemarsudde, Stockholm

The Waldemarsudde estate was part of the bequest of Prince Eugen (1865-1947) to the Swedish state. The estate covers some 70 000 square meters and is situated on the sea-approach to Stockholm, offering views towards the city. It is richly vegetated with deciduous trees and the grounds include rocks, sandy inlets and meadows.
Prince Eugen was eager to maintain the park characteristics when he purchased the estate in 1899. In furthering this idea, he had a number of trees planted, as for instance the row of poplars by the water.

In 1905, he had a mansion built on the estate and in 1913 he added a gallery. He was a painter himself and an art collector of renown.
On the seaward side of these buildings, Prince Eugen had two terraces constructed with beautiful formal gardens and an abundance of flowers.

Today Waldemarsudde is both an art museum and a beautiful home. The flowers grown in the garden and in the estate hothouses are used indoors in magnificent floral displays that are still assembled in accordance with the instructions of the Prince.

The park also hosts a number of sculptures such as a copy of the antique Nike from Samotrace, as well as works by 20th century sculptors such as Antoine Bourdelle and Auguste Rodin.

There is a café, open in the summers, which is housed in a picturesque fisherman’s cottage dating back to the late 18th century. There is no entry fee to visit the park and gardens. For more information, please visit our website at
