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!

I thought it was small, we walked from skansen and it was nice walked but never the less long walk and to be honest I think there are other things more important to see, but if you are art freak then its a must

Waldemarsudde was hands down the museum I liked most in Stockholm. It combines Swedish art and architecture in a pastural setting overlooking the sea. Prepare to be charmed by the lovely interiors and great cafe. Allow time to walk the grounds and stop for tea. The ticket entry is beside the house itself; visitors enter through a tunnel.

Please. If you are in Stockholm, visit this beautiful spot on earth. This is like Denmarks' Louisiana. A nice, huge house filled with art. Typical Swedish art. Very nice. Possibilty to get a "fika" or eat something. My suggestion is to take a walk from Skansen to get there. Or the tram.

This must be one of the hidden jewels to visit in Stockholm. Very good food, outside in the garden ( in the summer ) as well as inside. A very relaxing atmosphere.

Located on the island of Djurgården, Prins Eugens Waldemarsudde is the former home of Prince Eugen who was himself a painter and art patron. The stunning home is now a wonderful art gallery. The view over the water from the garden is simply stunning. Wonderful experience!

Take the trip by the tram to Prins Eugens Waldemarsudde - the beautiful mansion - which also functions as a museum for special exhibits. The Miro exhibit is worth the trip - as is the mansion - and the original rooms where the prince lived..

We went by tram 7 to the museum and had a nice walk back to the city centre after the visit. We enjoyed the interiors as well as some minor dishes in the restaurant situated in the former kitchen. A walk in the garden is a must, less because of the garden than of the view towards the sea.

The former residence of painter and prince Eugen is the perfect setting for a gallery, particularly if the artist on show is Joan Miró. The walk to this castle on the very tip of the island of Djurgården is a beautiful part of a well rounded experience. The restaurant is good but busy. The only backside was that too many... More

Such a beautiful place to visit. The interior and grounds were filled with many beautiful art pieces. A perfect little outdoor Café nearby for Fika was a bonus. Must go back!

Neighbourhood 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.
