Harvest celebration in Solliden, the Palace park is open from Thursday to Sunday. You can buy potatoes, carrots, apples ... and have a nice cup of coffee at Kaffetorpet.

Apple picking time in Solliden. They tell at their Facebook, that queen Victoria planted about 2500 fruit trees to Solliden, and today there about 200 of those trees still in Solliden.

Greenhouses are getting full when flowers are moved inside from the park.

According to the text at the photos they make äppelmust (a non-alcoholic cider) of the apples. That is sold at Kaffetorpet (Cottage Café) in Solliden.

Deer is hunted in Sweden only during certain time frames. Most common deer is the roe deer. The fallow deer is not as common.

Solliden Palace launched on Thursday a new website:
Sollidens Slott

There is also some information in english and german.

At "vanliga frågor" (common questions) they answer to many questions regarding the Palace and visiting the park, such as:
Is the King at home today?
We lift a royal flag in front of the Palace when the King or the Crown Princess is in Solliden.
Can you take photos in the park?
Yes, please do! Please use #sollidensslott on Instagram if you have a smartphone or tablet.
Can you see the Palace from the inside?
No, because Solliden Palace is a private residence, it is not possible.
Can you see the Crown Princess Couple's new house?
No, it is located at a private part of Solliden.
Why do you close the gates earlier than the appointed time?
To walk around the park takes about 45 minutes. We close the entrance one hour before closing so that everyone will get out of the park before we lock for the day.
