Ulriksdal Palace

Ulriksdal Palace

Ulriksdal Palace is situated on the banks of Edsviken Lake in the National City Park in Stockholm. The palace was built in the 1600s and visitors witness many different epochs.

The palace area of Ulriksdal has a lot to offer. Join the guided tour of the palace, admire the sculptures in the Orangery.

A tour of Ulriksdal Palace gives the visitor an exciting view of interior design spanning from the 1600s to the 1900s. Several of the rooms on show were created for Karl XV by Fredrik W. Sholander.

Several Swedish regents have left their mark on Ulriksdal. Queen Kristina built a pleasure garden in front of the palace and Hedvig Elenora built an Orangery in the park. Queen Kristina enjoyed the palace so much that she let her coronation procession proceed from Ulriksdal.

The palace was built for Constable of the Realm Jacob De La Gardie by architect Hans Jacob Kristler. The palace was called Jacobsdal until the time of Queen Hedvig Eleonora.

Both the palace and the Orangery are open to the public during the summer months. At the Orangery an exhibition of Swedish sculpture from the Swedish National Museum's collection can be viewed.
