A Royal Collection

Large arrow left

Prince Eugen’s Waldemarsudde is one of the city’s most revered fine art museums.

The son of King Oscar II and Queen Sophia, Prince Eugen himself was one of Sweden’s leading landscape painters and an avid collector of works by Anders Zorn, Per Ekström, Hugo Birger, Carl Milles, Carl Eldh, and Auguste Rodin, to name a few.

In 1947 when he died, Prince Eugen left Waldemarsudde and his art collection to the Swedish state, and the City of Stockholm now runs Waldemarsudde as a prime museum.
