Ulriksdal Palace is a former royal residence located on the banks of the Edviken Lake in the National City Park of Solna.
The Palace was built in the 1600s for Jacob Pontusson De la Gardie, the Palace was called Jacobsdal until the time of Queen Hedvig Eleonora, who purchased the Palace in 1669.
Ulriksdal served as a veterans' hospital from 1822 to 1849, established by King Charles XIV John.
The Palace has been open to the public since 1986.

Ulriksdal in the north of the Haga area was in use by the late King Gustav 6 Adolf (who died 1973) and Queen Louise.

The Ulriksdal Palace Theatre Confidencen:
Ulriksdal Palace Theatre, Confidencen, is the oldest Rococo theatre in Sweden. The house was built as a riding school in 1670. It was rebuilt by Carl Fredric Adelcrantz in 1753 as a court theatre for King Adolf Fredric and Queen Lovisa Ulrica. The theatre wasn't used after Gustaf III's assassination in 1792. Performances are given here again since the 1980's.

A suite of elegant rooms were decorated for entertainment and the largest has a dining table, ā confident, that can be lowered into the basement below and raised when needed. The food was served on four dumbwaiters which enabled the royal family to dine in private without servants.

Ulriksdal Palace was built 1640-45 by Count Jacob De la Gardie. It was bought in 1669 by Queen Hedvig Eleonora who in 1684 changed its name when she gave it to her newborn grandson Prince Ulric. He sadly died soon after so the Queen herself decided to move in. She had many palaces to choose from (she also built Drottningholm and Strömsholm Palace) but she seems to have preferred to live at Ulriksdal which was conveniently situated just outside Stockholm. In 1923 the then Crown Prince Gustaf (VI) Adolf began renovating the palace and moved in shortly afterwards with his second wife Lady Louise Mountbatten. It was used by them as a private home, mainly for a few weeks each autumn and for about a month in the spring. After the king died in 1973 it stood empty until it was opened to the public in 1986. Interiors from the 1920s have been preserved and rooms decorated for Carl XV (d. 1872) has been restored.

The large drawing room created in 1923 for Gustaf (VI) Adolf and Louise has furniture designed by the architect Carl Malmsten. The book loving king had bookcases placed around the walls in here as well. This was the first modern living room created in a Swedish royal palace and has been preserved for posterity as an example of Swedish design from the 1920s.

The great book collector Gustaf VI Adolf of Sweden had two library rooms decorated at Ulriksdal Palace in 1925-27 after designs by the architect Torben Grut. The King and his wife Queen Louise used to dine in here rather in the large dining room next door when they were by themselves. Today it is used to exhibit some of the king’s extensive collection of books.
