Royal Walks: Ulriksdal Palace Park
The Royal Walks app offers walks in beautiful settings through several of our royal parks. It now includes walks in the area surrounding Ulriksdal Palace.
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 palace park is a large area featuring traces of different stylistic ideals. Here, one of Sweden's most attractive baroque gardens was laid out in the late 17th century.
The Royal Walks app can be downloaded free of charge from the App Store and Google Play. The text is in Swedish and English, and is illustrated with new and historic photos.
Open the app, select Ulriksdal, and choose from three themed walks: The Green Walk, Buildings at Ulriksdal and the Ulriksdal Quiz.
The Green Walk
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.
This walk is ideal for our younger visitors. Discover some of the park's highlights together, and answer various questions – some easy, some slightly harder. Each stop also has a task to complete there and then, encouraging children to use their senses and to play with friends and family.
