Perfect place for a walk or run with or without kids or dogs and explore European/Swedish history. Only downside is the 15 SEK/h charge for parking more »
A very nice place to visit if you want to walk around by foot. In the back of the palace you'll find a beautiful garden. I visited by winter, but I'm sure is much prettier during summer time.
Incredibly beautiful french inspired building outside the city. The park is so nice for a long relaxing walk. There is also a Chinese pagoda: nothing special but good to walk around. The place is like 20 minutes from the center by public transport, highly recommended a visit to escape the city kind of atmosphere.
