Royal Walks: Tullgarn

The Royal Walks app offers walks in beautiful settings through several of our royal parks. The app now also includes a guide to the area around Tullgarn Palace!

The Royal Walks app will guide you on a walk through Tullgarn Palace Park, during which you can learn about the park's history and buildings.

The park is surrounded by a bay with shallow beaches that attract a wealth of birdlife. The palace's surroundings include various horticultural styles, including a formal 18th century garden and a picturesque English park with ponds and bridges. Visitors will also find out about the former tennis court where King Gustav V played in the summers.

Tullgarn Green Walk

Tullgarn Green Walk showcases some of the park's highlights. Find out about the varied flora and birdlife alongside the neighbouring bay. An 18th century bosquet and landscape garden, created during Prince Fredrik Adolf's time here, stands in contrast to the biological ponds which are examples of a more modern change in the area. At Lillhamnen, you can find out more about the Russian tsar's visit in 1909, when King Gustav V and Queen Victoria welcomed their long-distance guests.

Tullgarn Palace Walk

Tullgarn Palace Walk describes the buildings in the area, the magnificent palace and the beautiful Orangery, as well as the park's less well-known buildings such as the boathouse, the bathhouse and the Cavalier Wing where Dr Axel Munthe had his office. At the stables and inn stops, you can find out more about the history of the buildings before their current use as cafés.
