Prince Eugen's Waldemarsudde, originally the home of Prince Eugen, became state-owned after the Prince's death in accordance with his will, and is now among the most-visited art museums in Sweden. In the Mansion the Prince's Private Apartments remain mostly unchanged, while the two upper floors and the Gallery building are used for temporary exhibitions or for exhibiting works by the Prince or from his collections. The estate is set in a beautiful parkland, featuring centuries-old oak trees. Its situation by the inlet to Stockholm harbour presents the visitor with stunning views of the water. Welcome to Sweden's most beautiful art museum!

The former residence of painter and prince Eugen is the perfect setting for a gallery, particularly if the artist on show is Joan Miró. The walk to this castle on the very tip of the island of Djurgården is a beautiful part of a well rounded experience. The restaurant is good but busy. The only backside was that too many... More

Such a beautiful place to visit. The interior and grounds were filled with many beautiful art pieces. A perfect little outdoor Café nearby for Fika was a bonus. Must go back!

Having seen the house featured in a BBC4 programme about Scandinavian art, I decided make a visit during my most recent trip to Stockholm. The house itself is very elegant and the art collection is worth seeing.

This is one of my favourite house museums in Stockholm. The waterfront location is idyllic - within the city but part of the beautiful Djurgården neighbourhood. It is easily reached by tram from the city centre but also not too far to walk. The Mansion is wonderfully preserved from the time Prince Eugen lived there until his death in 1947.... More

I walked from the Rosendal Palace through farms and woods to the Waldemarsudde Museum on Djurgarden Island. This took about 15 minutes and was relaxing and interesting. The Waldemarsudde is a large late Victorian Mansion and property built by Prince Eugen Waldemarsudde who was himself an artist. The property consists of gardens and outbuildings, a bookshop/gift shop, the mansion itself... More

This small schloss was the home of a member of the Swedish royal family during the interwar period and has been maintained more or less as he left it. Prince Eugen of Sweden was not only a collector of fine art, he was also a painter of distinction. The main floor consists of his public entertaining spaces, quite possibly the... More

The museum and its beautiful grounds are located at the point of the island and provide wonderful views of Stockholm and its harbour. The ground floor rooms of Prince Eugen's Palace are carefully maintained as they were in his time and are themselves pieces of art. The sunlight streaming in the Flower Room is unforgettable. Prince Eugen's painting is quite... More

We wanted a combination of nature and culture and found Waldemarsudde a great alternative on a sunny day. Easy access by tramline 7, reasonable entry fee, rich selection of art, both in the garden and throughout the many rooms of the mansion.

Staying in Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn

Neighbourhood Profile
Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn
The island of Djurgården and its northern mainland extension, Djurgårdsbrunn, impress with a mix of nature and an abundance of museums, while being located in walking distance to Stockholm’s city center. Djurgården not only invites visitors to take endless walks through a beautiful park landscape without having to leave the city, but also offers an incredible range of entertainment facilities, such as an open air museum which specializes in the Swedish way of life pre-industrialization, the renowned Vasa Museum with its legendary sailing ship, and Sweden’s most famous amusement park Gröna Lund, which is more than a 100 years old.
