At Solliden, like in the whole Öland, is on 8th-10th May "Öland Spirar!" Weekend. The visitors have been let in to some private parts of the park, which is not normally open to visitors. They show the private orchard, greenhouses and beekeeping. Also guided tours have been arranged during the weekend.
At Kaffetorpet the spring menu and homemade pastries from their own bakery is served. The Gift Shop is filled with this year's novelties.

Anna Schibli, Director of Tourism at Solliden Palace has given a mission to Charlotte Rosén and Susanna Stenborg to do an essay about the Solliden Palace.
The thesis aims to investigate the image that Solliden Palace has, and the picture that local regional tourist offices have of the Sollidens Castle brand and what position Solliden include in these markets.
The essay is mainly in swedish. Anna Schibli has been interviewed and she has said that even though a lot of people visit Solliden every year, there should be more visitors because Solliden is a well-known brand, that is why she has given this mission to Rosén and Stenborg. The essay is dated 27th May 2015.

Anna Schibli started as the Director of Tourism of Solliden for three years ago. Her most important task is to ensure that the visitors enjoy, in addition to taking strategic and economic decisions and be responsible for the company. Schibli tells that she wants Solliden be perceived as a place where it happens a lot, there's something for everyone, so visitors stay longer on the site. Schibli explains, however, that she believes that most tourists have a fairly uncertain picture of Solliden Palace, that they are unsure of what they get. The past three years, there has been a business development at Solliden, where they have tried to analyze everything they have done well and what has not been done so well, and developed a number of new events during the summer season.
One thing that is important to consider, Schibli says, is partly that the visitors enjoy their stay and have a good time, but also that the Royal Family must thrive on Solliden. If the royal family don't have a good time in Solliden, so that they would not like staying at Solliden, which would lead to that Solliden only has a park.

Östra Småland has an article "The king is losing millions in Solliden", but you can only read it if you pay. The king has lost more than four millions in the last two years at his wholly-owned company that runs Solliden. The company runs among other things Kaffetorpet and souvenir sales.
Ny miljonförlust för kungen på Solliden - Östra Småland

Running Solliden is not profitable at the moment, the costs are higher than income.

Solliden Palace and it's garden are gorgeous places. It is great that the staff of the Palace has started publishing photos of the garden regularly so that we who can't travel there, can see how it looks and how wonderful the park is.
Album from the Palace Facebook, the english garden, the tulip tree is blooming.

Solliden is owned by the king. Who would inherit it when he passes? Would it go to Victoria because she would be the new sovereign?

Because Solliden Palace isn't very big. I have read from Svensk Damtidning that the Palace consists of three floors. The ground floor consists of household premises. The second floor consists of an entrance hall, salon, dining room and a guest room. A staircase leads up from the entrance hall to the third floor, there is a bedroom, salon and one room. In the attic there are some additional smaller rooms. Before Victoria and Daniel didn't have their own house there, they stayed at Kavaljershuset, where Madeleine and her family, Carl Philip and Sofia and the guests of the royal family are now staying in the summer. Kavaljershuset is about 500 square meters and has three floors. According to swedish press, the king and queen are also staying at Kavaljershuset, if they are in Solliden in the winter.
Victoria and Daniel clearly like to spend a lot of time in Solliden and perhaps the Palace is nowadays quite uncomfortable for a family. Maybe they were thinking that the king and queen can spend at least 10-15 years there in the future, so they built their own, new house to be able to enjoy their time in Solliden. The Kavaljershuset will also be quite crowded, if Carl Philip and Sofia will have some children and Madeleine and Chris will have more children.

And because the Palace Park is from 16th May until 15th September open for public from 11.00 to 18.00, the royal family normally isn't according to the press at the Palace at that time, they are at the boat house, or Kavaljershuset. But Victoria, Daniel and Estelle can be at their own summer house.

Good points. It's a question why every royal hasn't built their own house, given the above.

Maybe they don't want to put their money to a new house where they would spend only some weeks in a year. Carl Philip and Sofia spend a lot of time at Carl Philip's summer house in Ökenäs, it is only about an hour away from Stockholm. And he has a cottage in Sunne. Madeleine and Chris are living abroad and have at least before having children liked to travel in Europe meeting their friends.
Victoria and Daniel have told that they want to go to Solliden as often as it is possible. They spend some days a year with Daniel's family at the little summer house in Acktjära, which Olle Westling built in 2006 beside his summer house.
