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!

Very well presented gallery in a house with beautiful garden and views over the water. I would rank this one of my favourites in a packed visit to Stockholm. An oasis of calm compared to other more well known sites.

This gallery is at the end of tram line 7 and very easy to get to. It is a pleasant short (ten mins) walk through the gardens to get to the house. There were a variety of paintings, some very good indeed, in a beautiful house. A very pleasant place to visit. Takes perhaps an hour once inside.

We visited here quite accidentally. We originally planned to to take a walk in the park, and stumbled onto this, well, royal home, and decided to visit the art museum. We did not know at the time that this was the Swedes' favorite place to visit. The prince, a son of Queen Sofia, was an artist and collected paintings by... More

If you are an art lover, then this house is definitely a must see in downtown Stockholm. It is very easy to reach with the tram (number 7) and then a short walk in nature. I suggest you book a guided tour as they will give you more information than the audio guide available. The house is filled with very... More

Prins Eugens of the Swedish royal family was quite an accomplished artist and his beautiful house is filled both with his own art and his collection of art by contemporaries. The setting is gorgeous, with well kept gardens that invite a stroll or contemplative rest, and a charming outdoor tea house where you can have cakes and other delights along... More

We spent an engaging morning at this art gallery. Not necessarily the most outstanding works of art, but rather a show case for little known Scandinavian artists at the turn of the 20th century. Well worth a visit from art lovers.

The prince was a "nice" artist his collection was good for what he was trying to do, the mini palace is really nice, renovations to house exhibits detract from the house but the grounds are also really good.

When we went, there was an extensive display of Swedish women impressionists. We were impressed by the quality of the art and the spacious, well-lit rooms. Being a painter myself, I drooled over the second-floor studio: high ceilings, tons of space, incredible light. (it's good to be prince). It's easy to get to: just take the #7 tram almost to...

We took the tram and walked the short path to this stately mansion with an interesting history and beautiful art collection.

Staying in Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn

Neighborhood 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.
