Annexe to Haga Palace

The annexe was built in the early 1930ies to accomodate domestic rooms and servants quarters when Haga became the residence of prince Gustav Adolf and princess Sibylla.

Haga Palace: Size, Et Cetera

http://img580.imageshack.us/img580/3...ott911676w.jpg
Here is a cross-section of Haga Slott, the new home of CP Victoria and the Duke of Vstergtland. It was published in the magazine Aftonbladet and shows the layout of the palace (really a villa) and some of the rooms as they are presently decorated. The house was used as an official guest residence by the Swedish government but was given back to the royal family as a wedding gift for the couple. As you can see it is not a huge house, given the possibilities. It is spacious, comfortable, and modest. Too many people think princesses live surrounded by pomp and glitter and ballrooms. Haga Slott is just right for a modest monarchy like Sweden's. And for a couple starting out, under the circumstances.

It's absolutely beautiful there. I live not too far away from Hagaparken and I was very delighted to hear that they will move in there. It is true that it's smaller than a regular palace but it's not that small as some pictures might suggest. Before the new security measurements were added you could walk straight to the front door of the palace.

I agree; I only pointed out the relative size because so many people seem to think it shocking the couple doesn't live in something the size of Buckingham Palace. I've seen American houses in Greenwich, Connecticut, larger than Haga Slott! Which isn't a criticism; I think it's a lovely building.

I've heard 40 rooms bandied about for Haga Slott's size, but that seems to include everything from kitchens to maids' rooms, et cetera. The cross section seems to show a much clearer view of how many "family" rooms there are versus how many staff or other sorts of rooms.

How near to Haga palace you actually can go nowadays? I'm planning a new trip to Stockholm in September and I'm curious to see Victoria and Daniel's new home, too.

If they are permanently living there, then i would imagine you would only be allowed to the gates.

I read somewhere that renovations won't be complete in time for them returning from their honeymoon. So I guess they'll have to wait a bit.

You can see bits and pieces of Haga and you can walk around the castle. Of course you can no longer get as near as you used to but it's still not completely isolated. I recommend the visit to Haga. :)

Thanks for the information. I'm planning to go to Stockholm maybe in January/February. What is the best way to get to Haga from the center of Stockholm?

Finally they moved in (last week already). It surely was a relief for them after such a long waiting time
