Royal Walks: Haga

The Royal Walks app offers walks in beautiful settings through several of our royal parks. The app now also includes a guide to Haga park!

The Royal Walks app will guide you on a walk through Haga park, during which you can learn about the history of the park and the buildings within it.

Located beside Brunnsviken, Haga park has been open to visitors since the end of the 18th century and is still an oasis close to the city.

The park was created according to the visions of Gustav III, although many of his ideas never came to fruition, and today it is one of Europe’s foremost examples of a so-called English park. It includes Gustav III’s Pavilion, next to Haga Palace, the fabulous Copper Tents, the Royal Cemetery, the Echo Temple and the Grotto. There are also many scenic spots for picnics, walks and exercise.

Royal Walks: Haga

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.

After opening the app, choose the region “Haga park” and you can choose between: The Northern Walk and The Southern Walk.

The Northern Walk

The northern walk guides you around highlights of the northern half of Haga park, starting at the northern gates. You’ll find stories about the Copper Tents, the Butterfly House, the Echo Temple and Gustav III’s Pavilion, right beside Haga Palace. Discover how the foundation for the so-called “castle ruin” came to be built, a tale that features verses from the song “The butterfly winged is seen at Haga”.

The Southern Walk

The southern walk takes you on a stroll through the southern part of Haga Park, from the gates of Haga South, past the Turkish Kiosk, the Royal Cemetery and other historic sights before ending up at Gustav III’s Pavilion. Bring along a picnic and sit for a while on Stora Pelousen, the grassy slope below the Copper Tents, and find out more about the Bellman party and other events that have taken place here.

The Grand Pelouse. The word “pelouse” is French for an area of grass, (i.e. a lawn) and is a term in landscape architecture for a large, gently shaped, often sloping lawn. Just like the one you see in front of you. Photo: Raphael Stecksén
