Kungsträdgarden (Kungsan)
14 Tours en activiteiten
De Kungsträdgarden, oftewel Koningstuin of Kungsan, is een populair park in het centrum van Stockholm. Er worden openluchtconcerten en andere evenementen georganiseerd tijdens de zomermaanden en in de winter is er een schaatsbaan. De demonstraties van de 1 meibeweging van Zweden vinden hier ook jaarlijks plaats. Het park kan worden verdeeld in vier unieke gebieden: het Plein van Karel XII, de Fontein van Molin, het Plein van Karel XIII en de fontein van Wolodarski. Het park bestaat al eeuwenlang. In eerste instantie werd op deze plek een koninklijke moestuin aangelegd, die in de 17de en 18de eeuw werd omgevormd tot gesloten recreatietuin. De muren rond de tuin verdwenen in de 19de eeuw en in 1821 werd het grootste deel van de tuin met gravel overdekt. Hierdoor ontstond wat nu het Plen van Karel XIII heet. De fontein van Molin werd in 1866 toegevoegd, toen het gebied het middelpunt was van Scandinavische kunst en industriële presentatie.

Behind-the-scenes tours are also available, offering visitors the chance to peek into the dressing rooms, watch the expert wigmakers, stage designers and costume tailors at work, and browse the extensive library, said to contain over 15 tons of sheet music.

Royal Swedish Opera (Kungliga Operan)
7 Tours en activiteiten

As the opulent home of the Royal Swedish Opera and the Royal Swedish Ballet, the Royal Swedish Opera House (or Stockholm Opera House) has come a long way since its former incarnation as a tennis court. It was Swedish King Gustav III who founded the opera house in 1782, but just 10 years later the King was assassinated at a masquerade ball on-site, forcing the closure of the venue.

Fortunately, the historic Opera House was restored and reopened, with the present day building designed by architect Axel Anderberg in the late 19th century. Boasting a dramatic waterfront location opposite the Royal Palace (Kungliga Slottet), the striking neoclassical façade and spectacular Golden Foyer, make this one of Stockholm’s most celebrated designs, decorated with gold Carl Larsson stuccos, Vicke Andrén ceiling paintings, gigantic crystal chandeliers and a grandiose marble staircase.

Gustaf Adolf Square (Gustav Adolfs Torg)

Gustaf Adolf Square (Gustav Adolfs Torg)

5 Tours en activiteiten

Built in 1629 and known simply as Stortorget (Big Square) for two centuries, Gustaf Adolf Square gets its name from the plaza’s statue of Gustavus Adolphus, king of Sweden from 1611 - 1632. Notice how the statue’s finger points to the ground. Story goes, the king rode up Otterhällan Mountain and pointed to the fields surrounding the canal below, saying “The city shall be placed here.”

Snap a pic of yourself doing the same pose as Gustaf, and you won’t be the only one. Said to be one of the great military leaders of European history, the king is said to have steered Sweden to greatness in the Thirty Years War, so Gothenburg’s main square seems a fitting place for his statue. On the north side of the square, see Gothenburg City Hall, a neoclassical dream of gleaming white pillars, and a popular place to get married. Also look out for the city’s law court. Its 1934 extension, by leading Swedish architect Gunnar Asplund, has been much lauded by fans of his modernist style.
