Solliden Palace, Öland
Solliden Palace

Solliden, an Italian-style white palace, was built by Queen Victoria of Sweden in 1903 and completed in 1906, and is still used as a summer residence by the Swedish Royal Family.
Solliden Palace is located on the island of Öland, in southern Sweden.
There is a tradition of passing the Palace down through the senior royals/monarchs of the country, while still allowing use of the Palace to other members of the Royal Family.

I have! Very nice place. I can see why the rf like it! The park is wonderful!
Thanks for posting the pics of the sea-pavillon, I´ve never seen it from the air before

I visited Solliden yesterday. It was a beautiful park.. as usual =)
And this years show about King Carl Gustafs 30 years as king of Sweden was very interesting. Many never before seen pictures and fun items. Worth seeing!

Unfortunately I missed the royals by minutes =( It would have been nice to see them..
but other than that it was a great day!

Hi Yennie! Which members of the royal Family are at Solliden at the moment? :flower:

Yennie 08-08-2003 03:09 PM

I´m not sure.. I think the royal couple are in St Maxime and someone on this board saw Princess Madeleine in Stockholm a few days ago.. so maybe Carl Philip and Victoria?

EDIT: Victoria, Carl Philip and Madeleine are all in Sweden at the moment and they attended their friend Andreas wedding on saturday the 9th of august.

Here´s some of my pictures of Solliden

Also: how come the Norwegian royal family has about an equal number of approximately 3 to 4 private and official residences each, and the Swedish royal family - being in a larger country and supposedly richer - makes do with only one private residence
The royal family has one more cottage, in Tärnaby I think. And king Carl Gustaf owns Solliden on Öland aswell.
But all the other palaces, like Drottningholm, is owned by the state.

Thank you for correcting me on the ownership of Solliden. And what is the correct spelling "Solliden" or "Soliden"?

Yennie 09-26-2003 10:47 AM

It´s amazing... very "summerish" =)
I can understand why the royal family loves Solliden so much

hrhcp 09-26-2003 11:38 AM

very nice pictures.

any idea what the inside looks like?


ps: I think even the broom closet would be nice to stay in.

Yennie 09-26-2003 02:00 PM

Very few pictures of Solliden from the inside has been released. I´ve only seen two of them. I´ve seen a picture of the dining room and one of the main hall...
I know that the house has an "english style". Its very dark and "woody" (can´t remember the word in english!)
Its all designed by Queen Victoria in the early 1900´s

will solliden be given to Victoria or also to Carl Philip and Madeleine?

Yennie 04-19-2004 11:10 AM

I think it will go to Victoria, since its tradition that the monarch(?!) lives there.
Just like the King owns it today instead of his older sisters

Lena 04-20-2004 01:53 PM

I wonder, if Solliden is registered in the land charge register as "castle"?? me it looks more like a big country house or a Villa...

Yennie 04-20-2004 03:09 PM

I agree. But the "officiall" name is Sollidens slott (Solliden castle/palace)
But maybe it would be more right to call it a mansion or something like that...
