Photos of the Playhouse at Solliden Palace Park. The house/homestead is from 1867 (then called Grönadal) and in 1948 there was made some changes and king Gustaf V gave it as a present to king Carl Gustaf and his sisters. Victoria, Madeleine and Carl Philip played there now and then, and now perhaps Estelle and Leonore are using it.
The playhouse is open for public on two weekends during the summer, in May and now at this weekend. According to Sjöberg Bildbyrå, these photos have been taken this year.

The Cottage Café (Kaffetorpet) at Solliden
Just outside Solliden Palace area is a little cottage dating from 1890. The king bought the cottage, which was then in very poor condition, from the Öland cultural association in 1999 for 1,1 million SEK.
Since then, the small house has been both renovated and expanded, and currently houses a café with seating for 70 guests. Coffee is served in the large, polished copper pots along with waffles and homemade cakes and buns. Most are made in Café's own bakery with the Palace's fine ingredients, such as apples and berries.

I came across this documentary, it's all in German but it's from what I can understand of German, about Oland, the royal family and the island itself a bit. Videos include the Queen speaking in German, Victoria day fairly recently but also some old footage of the royal family in the 1980's at Solliden Slott, Madeleine riding a horse with the king, and the king and the children taking a boat ride to the boathouse and the family down at the boathouse and some footage of the palace.
