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.

Unfortunately not a piece of art any more. Some pure exhibitions over local artists, working hours are to be adjusted.

The most artistic Prince! Beautiful home in fantastic gardens! A must when visiting Stockholm. Prince Eugens collection of pairings, including his owns are more than well worth the visit,

We walked to the gallery on a beautiful day. The artwork is very nice and many of the pieces are painted by the prince. He was great! The home is beautiful, the sun room with dining area is absolutely my favorite there. One of the better house/ museums in Stockholm.

The moment we entered the first rooms we knew this was going to be a special and memorable attraction. And so it was.

Prins Eugen was fortunate as the fourth son in being allowed to devote himself to his Bohemian and artistic passions. His mother Queen Sophia, of German origin, was progressive having received a liberal education and she wished all her children to have same. Thus Eugen attended an ordinary school and then Uppsala university.

He was a fervent patron of the arts and determined to collect not only according to his own artistic interests but supporting the wider Scandinavian art movements of the time.

When this palace was completed in 1905 Prins Eugen marked it with a grand inaugural dinner of the intelligentsia and artistic communities, interestingly all male.

The Prins was a very accomplished artist and recognised as such. His metier was landscape and he pivoted away from full realism. Many wonderful examples of his own artistic works are here.

A profusion of marvellous works by other famous Scandinavian artists are shown. Notables are Carl Larsson and Richard Bergh. The latter's Death and the Maiden is particularly powerful.

Picturesquely situated on the shore, lovely waterside walks are laid out. We finished with a delightful hour long walk around the whole estate.
