Haga Park

Haga Park is one of Europe’s finest English-landscape parks. Leave your bike and stroll around, listening to the audio guides you will find in the park. Here more than anywhere else you can experience the mood of Gustav III’s era. In 1771 he purchased the southern part of the park containing the Haga Manor – Old Haga, which lay on the slopes of Vasaslätten. Picturesque pavilions were to be found on the islets that then existed out in the water and there were tree-lined avenues along which to stroll. In 1785 the King bought the neighbouring manor of Brahelund and his lands more than doubled to the north. The Great Lawn was constructed and channels and artificial islands were built off the shore. The dwelling house of the Brahelund property was incorporated into Gustav III’s Pavilion. In the late 1780s most of the other well-known buildings in the park were built: the Turkish Pavilion, the Chinese Pagoda, the Copper Tents, and the Temple of the Echo. Work on the park ceased after the assassination of the King in 1792 and was never completed. Gustav III´s Pavilion is open for visitors during the summer months.
