The Themed Gardens exhibition
For the seventh year in a row, we offer an Themed Gardens Exhibition on Gustav V's old croquet course.This year's exhibition is about greenhouses, these lovely rooms in the garden that are not only a place for cultivation but also for recreation, creativity and socializing. This year there will be no competition. Instead, four well-known profiles will inspire visitors by decorating each greenhouse in their very own unique way. The profiles will be presented shortly.
The exhibition opens on July 3 and remains in the park the season until October 3.

The king has bought additional land on Öland and expanded his already large territory around Solliden Palace. Svensk Damtidning quotes Ölandsbladet's paywall article.
From Lantmäteriet's documents can be seen that the king has bought 22,718 square meters land from a neighbor, located 700 meters southwest of the palace.
The purchase was made during the first quarter of this year and the king paid SEK 685,000.
- A neighbor asked if the king wanted to buy this land, an area that is about 30 meters wide and extends along Solliden's southern border, says Margareta Thorgren.
It was speculated whether the king intends to have additional houses built on Solliden for Madeleine and Carl Philip and their families.
Margareta Thorgren denied the rumors of possible construction plans on the land in question:
- No, no changes will be made. This land will remain a natural area and be used as grazing land.
Hovet om kungens beslut – har köpt mer mark på Solliden _*Svensk Dam

Solliden Palace opens the gates for the season in connection with Öland Spirar already on Wednesday 12 May.
The big news for the year is the unique Open Air exhibition that the glass artist Bertil Vallien is showing in the English Park.
- This will really be something out of the ordinary. Large glass sculptures displayed in a nature gallery with the sky as a roof, says Pernilla Klintberg.
During Öland Spirar weekend, it is possible to visit Solliden's greenhouse in small groups. There will be a Spirar menu at Kaffetorpet and in Royal Gifts Shop plants are sold, including agave from the greenhouse and Geranium Estelle, new for the season.
In order for everyone to feel safe, Solliden has taken a number of measures. Inside the park there is plenty of space and it's easy to keep your distance. At the entrance, at toilets and at Kaffetorpet, the flows have been adjusted so that congestion doesn't occur. There is also hand alcohol in several places and guides are adapted so that both restrictions and distances can be kept.

Kavaljershuset, the house where Carl Philip and Madeleine are staying with their families when they are at Solliden. The house was built in 1902 and has over 500 square meters and two kitchens.

Solliden Sessions, concerts at outdoor stage at Kaffetorpet at Solliden
Solliden Sessions is a different concert concept with a stripped-down, genuine feel. Experience your favorite artists in the open air in the fantastic Swedish and Öland summer. The outdoor stage at Sollidens Palace's Kaffetorpet puts the music and audience contact in focus, framed by a wonderful nature experience.
July 3 & 4 - Peter Jöback
July 9 - Lena Philipsson
July 13 - Carola
July 15 - Smith & Thell
July 17 - Hasse Andersson
July 23 - Bo Kaspers Orkester
July 26 - Lisa Nilsson
July 30 - Arvingarna
August 3 - Lill Lindfors
August 4 - Magnus Carlsson
August 13 - Magnus, Elisa & Markos
Solliden Sessions

The King has got a new job - as a professional concert organizer.
This summer, Carl XVI Gustaf invites the Swedish people to gigs at Solliden.
The artist elite will go to Solliden to set the tone for the stage that the King had built next to the palace twenty years ago.
It has been modestly used, but from July 3, "Solliden Sessions" starts. Peter Jöback is first out and then Lill Lindfors, Carola Häggkvist and Arvingarna, among others, will perform for a seated audience. The king should be happy with the line-up as he holds a veto in the planning of each artist event.
Arvingarna's frontman Casper Janebrink is looking forward to the assignment, he said that of course it will be very fun to come to Solliden. They look forward to that, and to finally get out again and play. It has been a long and frustrating time with uncertainty and hopes of going out again and meeting the audience.
Hasse Andersson is also tagged for the summer job. A.few years ago, he had the opportunity to build Hasse's Garden at Solliden Palace in The Themed Gardens competition. Their garden won the audience award and his family and he were overjoyed! Since then, he has visited Solliden every year with his wife and walked around the beautiful park. He admires the royal family and think it's extra fun to play at Solliden.
"Solliden Sessions" is a collaboration between Solliden and Krall Entertainment.
Kungen arrangerar konserter på Solliden med Carola, Jöback

King Carl XVI Gustaf opens up the garden, then the Swedish artist elite makes a pilgrimage to Öland.
This summer, Carola, Lena Philipsson, Lisa Nilsson and several other stars will perform at Solliden Palace.
In 2001, King Carl Gustaf had a small wooden concert stage built next to Solliden. It hasn't been used much, largely only in the National Day celebration.
This summer stars will be shining there. Then the icing on the cake of the Swedish artist elite comes to Öland for intimate concerts. The premiere is on July 3, when Peter Jöback will be on stage.
- We have kept this a secret for a long time. We will of course make sure that there are places for the royal family, they have a reserved area in front of the stage, says organizer Patrik Krall.
How do you get such a good line-up of artists? Does the king have anything to say about when it comes to choosing artists?
- The Solliden brand attracts of course. And we are making a long-term investment meant to be for many years. We want to build a small nice playground on classic land. Yes, of course he has. It is his property and his facility, so of course he wants to be involved and like and think.
Arvingarna's Casper Janebrink thinks that Solliden's investment is welcome after a tough year, it feels like the king is aware that this is an industry that has been hit very hard during the pandemic.
Solliden's managing director Carolina Thaysen tells that there has been thoughts of doing something more with the stage for a long time. Kaffetorpet is outside the Palace park and it is a fantastic little cozy cultural area with a small wooden stage. The royal family is aware of the program that Thaysen and her colleagues have developed for the summer. They think it looks good. But they don't get involved in the business at a detailed level. Thaysen hopes they will find it nice.

The king becomes pop king - stars are seen at Solliden
The royal family is close to concerts in the usual case due to the proximity to the Borgholm Castle Ruins, now they get even closer.
When the Castle Ruins set up, the "pop king" takes over. Namely Carl XVI Gustaf.
Starting on July 3, Solliden Palace / Krall Entertaiment will start their own concert summer, Solliden Sessions, where names like Peter Jöback, Lisa Nilsson, Lena Philipsson and Carola will be seen on Kaffetorpet's stage.
The idea behind the event is really a symbiosis. The Solliden people thought "how to use Kaffetorpet's stage more and better" while the Krall gang scouted the outdoor stage during the GES (Anders Glenmark, Thomas Orup Eriksson, Niklas Strömstedt) summers, lured there by fika.
- That was when the idea was raised, that here it would be absolutely perfect to have small, exclusive concerts. We have fallen in love with this place, says Patrik Krall, CEO of Krall Entertaiment
The first contacts were made last autumn with "here we go" a few months ago. Patrik Krall reveals that the choice of artists has to do with the place.
- The artists must fit the brand Solliden Palace. We are not looking for a party, but here it should feel generous, exclusive and luxurious with a high level of artists.
The audience maximum is currently set at 500 people, all seated - from near the edge of the stage up to the cliff.

The Themed Gardens Exhibition - 'Inglasat'
For the seventh year in a row, we offer a Themed Gardens Exhibition on Gustav V's old croquet course.

This evening is the first concert of Solliden Sessions, concerts at outdoor stage at Kaffetorpet at Solliden. Peter Jöback has concerts on 3-5 July.
The maximum number of people with a specified seat in an outdoor arena is 500 people, where the maximum number in a party is 4 people and there must be at least 1 m between the parties. Based on these conditions, it is therefore possible to buy a maximum of 4 tickets at a time via our online booking. It is of course also possible to book 1, 2, or 3 tickets if you are less than 4 people.

"Above all, to be able to sing and make music with my musicians and to meet the audience, it's an interaction with the audience and the artist, that's what's cool", Peter Jöback tells P4 Kalmar.

The small stage at Solliden used now for Solliden Sessions concerts looks good.

At least the first concert was a big success

At Facebook of The Friends of the Royal Armoury
On Saturday night, "Solliden Sessions" was inaugurated - the new summer concert series at the royal family's summer castle Solliden on Öland.
Kaffetorpet, located just outside the gates of Solliden's palace park, has served coffee and pastries to summer guests since 1890. Then it was the enterprising crofter's wife who saw an opportunity to earn an extra penny during the summer season - the croft was still under Borgholms Kungsgård and was not part of the land that Queen Victoria acquired from the state for her summer palace. Later, the croft was taken over by Öland's cultural heritage association, which ran the popular outdoor restaurant for many summer seasons, but in 1999 the King bought Kaffetorpet, renovated it and expanded it with a smaller restaurant building. The café and restaurant business is run by Solliden Palace, but as the facility is located outside the palace area itself, it can also be open in the evening, when the palace park is closed to visitors. As early as 2001, a small wooden stage was built on the grassy slope below Kaffetorpet, but much more than sporadic midsummer celebrations never took place. Until this year - 2021!
With a new, larger stage building in place, "Solliden Sessions" is now being launched - a concert series that will run for six summer weeks and present famous artists in a smaller and more intimate format with a maximum of five hundred in the audience.
Peter Jöback, together with two musician colleagues, had the honor of inaugurating the venture, in the presence of the King and Queen. The conditions could not have been better, the evening was hot in high summer and with Peter Jöback's fantastic voice from the stage and the sunset over Kalmarsund in the background, it became a completely magical evening for the enthusiastic premiere audience.

Smith and Thell had their concerts at Solliden Sessions on 15-16 July. Since they performed also at the Victoria Concert, the members of the Royal Family didn't attend their concerts. Love the flowers at their microphones.

Svensk Damtidning has once again an article about Victoria and Daniel's summer house Villa Skönvik at Solliden. The photos at it are old.
Margen Wigow Arkitektkontor designed the house. Rasmus Wærn, architect at Wingårdh Arkitektkontor, said about the house:
- I am happy that our future head of state is building a building like this, more low-key than it should be. If I had guessed who the customer was, I would have guessed a discreet person with good resources without any need to show it.

Today there is the traditional Enthusiast Vehicle exhibition at Solliden.
Solliden Palace yesterday at its Facebook yesterday evening:
"The authorities have at short notice changed the definition of the event from trade fair to public gathering, which means that we have new rules to relate to.
Visit the vehicle exhibition
The exhibition is now divided into different sections. We will first let in a limited number of people in section A and after 20 minutes these will go on to section B and then we will let in new visitors in section A and so on. This may mean that you may have to wait a little while at the entrance. We ask everyone to understand this approach and encourage everyone to follow the rules and instructions given at the exhibition. We are very careful to comply with the authorities' restrictions and not to contribute to the spread of Covid-19.
Note
This exhibition will affect the entire visit in parks. If you are not interested in the vehicle exhibition, we recommend that you come another day."
https://www.facebook.com/Sollidenssl...type=3&theater

Almost 400 vehicles are registered to participate at the exhibition.

Someone has filmed the visit to Solliden some days ago:

In the evening artist Lill Lindfors (81 years) performed at Solliden Sessions. Svensk Damtidning wonders a little why the king and queen didn't attend at her concert, they are friends with Lill and her husband Anders Byström, who is a member of the board of Sollidens Slott AB (Solliden Palace AB) which is owned by the king's private company Bensor. Lill and Anders live on Öland.
