Haga Palace

Listed under Castles & Palaces in Stockholm, Sweden.

Pin It

Haga Palace, north of Stockholm city, will become the Swedish Crown Princess Victoria’s home after she has married her beloved Daniel. We went there a winter afternoon for a walk - it’s a well known recreation area for Stockholmers.

Haga Palace were built in 1802-1804 and were during the 19th century home for different persons from the Swedish royal family. Our current King Carl XVI Gustaf did spend his first years there together with his 3 older sisters, popular called the Haga princessess, while Stockholm Palace were renovated.

It has been used as a foreign guest residence by the government, but is right now being renovated. The Swedish government is giving back Haga Palace to our Swedish Crown Princess Victoria and her fiance as a wedding gift. They are getting married in June.

They are moving the walking path which up to now has been passing by very close to the palace and will be behind fences to protect the princess. Later it will be possible to stroll by down at the lake instead.

There is a pavilion nearby: Gustav III’s Pavilion, built 1787 with instructions from our favorite Swedish King, Gustav III and an excellent example of the European neoclassicism of the late 1700’s.
