Ulriksdal Palace ­ The perfect destination for a day out

Ulriksdal Palace, which was built in the seventeenth century, stands in a beautiful pastoral setting on the shores of the Edsviken inlet. Several Swedish rulers have left their mark on Ulriksdal. Queen Kristina loved De La Gardie's palace so much in her day that she had her coronation procession start from there in the year 1650.

A tour round the palace provides an interesting insight into styles of furnishing from the seventeenth century up to the twentieth century. Highlights include the parlour, furnished by Carl Malmsten in the 1920s for Crown Prince Gustaf VI Adolf and his wife Louise Mountbatten, who are strongly associated with Ulriksdal.

Take a walk round the Orangery among exotic plants and sculptures by Johan Tobias Sergel and Carl Milles. Don't miss the beautiful palace chapel, which is today a very popular venue for weddings. The palace chapel, which was built in 1865, is unique today as a royal palace chapel preserved from that time.

In the mid eighteenth century, a palace theatre was built in the old riding school. The theatre, which was named Confidencen after the private dining room next to the stage, is today a popular summer theatre.

Both the palace and the Orangery Museum are open to visitors during the summer months. With its beautiful park and many surrounding buildings, Ulriksdal forms part of the National City Park in Stockholm.
