The Palace

Visiting Rosersberg Palace is like stepping back into an authentic royal environment from the turn of the 19th century. The fittings have remained untouched since 1860.

A visit to Rosersberg Palace means taking a step back into an authentic royal milieu from the turn of the 19th century. The permanent interiors have been untouched since 1860.

In the 1760s the palace became a royal palace when Duke Karl (XIII) moved in and modernized the palace in late Gustavian style.

The modernization was lead by the architect Jean Erik Rehn and an important series of new interiors were introduced, typified by the Orange and Red drawing rooms.

The interiors at Rosersberg Palace differ from the Gustavian style interiors of other royal palaces in Sweden. At Rosersberg the friviolous vein in the Gustavian style has been replaced by a more serious and romantic ideal that is often called Karl XIII Empire style.

Karl XIV Johan and Queen Desideria, the first Bernadottes, were the last royalties to reside at the palace. Karl Johan's bedchamber is one of Sweden's finest examples of an interior from the early 1800s.
