About Kungstradgarden

Translating from Swedish as “King’s Garden”, Kungsträdgården lies in central Stockholm, stretching north to south from Hamngatan Boulevard to the Lilla Värtan waterway. It is known locally as “Kungsan”, with its alfresco cafes, walkways and lawns making it a popular place for both locals and tourists to relax.

Kungsträdgården is divided into four distinct sections, with the Square of Charles XII dominating its southern end and centred around a commanding statue of the former King, designed by Johan Peter Molin. To the north is Molin’s Fountain, while the Square of Charles XIII lies beyond that with a neoclassicist sculpture of its namesake by Gustaf Göthe. At the northern end of the park is the large water feature of the Fountain of Wolodarski and an American-styled cafe and bar. Open-air concerts are often held during the summer months, and an ice skating rink is created here during the winter, while cafes and art galleries open year-round scatter along its perimeter. Prominent buildings which flank the park include the Sverigehuset tourist information centre, Ivar Kreuger's Matchstick Palace and the Royal Swedish Opera to its west, as well as the Stockholm Synagogue and Kungsträdgården Stockholm metro station, renowned for its artwork and ancient relics, to the east. To the south of the park is Strömgatan quay, with the Strömbron bridge linking to the Royal Palace and Old Town while the Norrbro bridge connects to Helgeandsholmen where the Riksdagshuset parliament buildings and Museum of Medieval Stockholm are found.

Kungsträdgården is connected by its own metro station which lies on the park’s eastern edge, as well as numerous public bus services on its perimeter. The tree-lined trails make it a picturesque spot to explore on foot and within walking distance of Stockholm’s Old Town to the south.

Kungsträdgården was established as far back as the Middle Ages and first mentioned as the “king’s cabbage garden” in 1430, before being expanded into a Baroque pleasure garden during the 17th century. In the early 19th century, it was replaced by the open gravel “Square of Charles XIII” for the inauguration of his statue, before tree-lined avenues were added in the 1860s. Kungsträdgården has long been a location of political protests, including the famous “Battle of the Elms” in 1971 which saw people tying themselves to the park’s 17th century elm trees to prevent their removal.
