Rosendals Trädgård is a garden open to the public situated on Djurgården, west of Rosendal Palace, in the central part of Stockholm, Sweden. Today, Rosendals Trädgård is open to public visitors in order to let visitors experience nature and to demonstrate different cultural effects on gardening through history. The purpose is to practise biodynamic agriculture and pedagogical education. The garden is owned and operated by the trust fund "Rosendals Trädgårds Stiftelse". In the area known as Rosendals Trädgård there are also, except from the garden: "Plantboden", a gardening shop where the customers can find everything that's useful in a garden, "Trädgårdsbutik", a shop where the customers can buy fresh vegetables cultivated in the garden at Rosendal. The maybe most visited shop is the famous bakery, which carries the same name as the garden, "Rosendal Trädgårds bakery". Visiting Rosendals Trädgård, one has a great opportunity to experience locally cultivated and produced phenomena and items.
The area today known as Rosendals Trädgård was in 1817 sold to the Swedish king Karl XIV Johan (Charles XIV John of Sweden), also known as Jean Baptiste Bernadotte. Bernadotte transformed the area into an English park. In 1819, the architect Fredrik Blom constructed a royal castle linked to the area known as "Rosendals Trädgård". At the same time a winter garden was also built, creating an opportunity to cultivate tropical plants even during wintertime. In 1848 the Swedish king Oscar I built an orangery, where exotic plants such as palms could be explored. The one person that has been most influential in the development of Rosendals Trädgård is probably Queen Josefina. Queen Josefina had a great interest in gardening and made it possible for the development to take place by establishing a number of plantations and greenhouses. In 1861, Queen Josefina also collaborated with the Swedish Gardening Society, something that made it possible to start a gardening-academy in the area. Together they reformed and structured the garden and its administration after their ideal, the Royal Horticultural Society in London. All the work that was implemented during Queen Josefina's lifetime led to a development that made Rosendals Trädgård flourish. During the fifty years that the garden academy was up running, the garden begun its transformation towards its current structure. Though, when the Garden academy was closed and the Swedish Garden Society ended their activity in the area, Rosendal went into a period of less activity. The Royal administration of Djurgården, who now owned the garden, demised the area for private practise and the garden transformed to several horticultural business garden. But in the late 1960s the Royal Administration of Djurgården acceded Rosendals Trädgård and restored it into its former glory of Queen Josefina.

One of my favorite places I visited in Stockholm. They have a huge self-serve pastry bar, and 3ish options on their menu that are made to order. The chicken dish I had (160kr) was delicious. I forgot that food could taste that good. Lovely outside seating options with tons of tables and benches. Indoor options as well. There is also a small store selling plants and another selling small food related goods. Love this place highly recommended.

A perfect place for a nice day. Be aware by 11:45 it will be absolutely packed here and you will have a long wait to get food and struggle to find seats. Best bet is to bring a picnic blanket. That being said the salads are wonderful and pastries are usually wonderful with an immense selection. Not somewhere you want to go for lunch if you are watching your finances.

During "gardening" season then this is a very nice place for a walk. It's all outdoor and on days with good weather it can be abit busy. My main reason for going here is to get out of town, and to do some macro photography of flowers and insects. If you are here early in the morning or in the evening, then you have a fair chance to see some deer lurking in the surroundings.

Its one of the peaceful, calm and best places in stockholm to have a huge gathering for dinner. The place is so green but its a bit far from coty center. The public transport access is also good but you have to walk around the place to enjoy its beauty. If not for a gathering or an event, this place is nice to take a stroll, nice to lay back and enjoy some sun.

An amazing place on an island in the centre of Stockholm. The cafe serves lunch and Fika all with lots of fresh produce from the gardens around. In summer, you can sit outside with lunch in the shaded gardens, such a nice atmosphere. In the big greenhouses you can buy lots of plants and they also have a small shop selling small produce from the farm and other Swedish independent producers. On a hot summers day, there's no better place in the city.

Perfect place to have celebrated our friend's wedding. Impeccably quaint and kept. A true garden of Eden full of fruit trees and rotated organic crops. Lovely picnic locations amongst apple orchard. Escape the city within the city.

Nice space for some outdoor hanging. Not much happening but if you just want a chillaxing place to be this is decent. Was here for a corporate event and as the weather was good it was pretty decent. Don't wear heels as the ground is gravel and pebbles. Also there is one area that is under roof, but don't think this place would be so nice if the weather wasn't warm and nice. Food was interesting (corporate event) and quite fun. No gourmet food but good event food.
