The app will guide you on walks through the beautiful Ulriksdal Palace Park, during which you can learn about the park's history and buildings.

The Green Walk takes you on a historic journey through the park's different stylistic ideals. You will discover traces of the former 17th century baroque garden and wander through the 18th century English park with its shaded groves, ridges and wild trees.

Buildings at Ulriksdal

The park is home to several buildings, dating from the 17th century through to 1860. The buildings at Ulriksdal walk will guide you through the area's architectural history, including both buildings that are still standing and the former masterpieces from days gone by. These include a 17th century orangery, a royal chapel from the time of King Karl XV and a palace theatre built by Queen Lovisa Ulrika, not forgetting Ulriksdal Palace itself.

The large park has plenty of places for relaxing. There is a café and lots of grassy areas for picnicking. With a beautiful location alongside Edsviken Bay, it's easy to find your own favourite spot.
