Sculpture Walk in Djurgården

The sculpture tour in Djurgården focuses on the image of history that prevailed during the 19th century and the turn of the last century. This notion was reflected in the style of the public sculptures, and it was also a factor behind the foundation of institutions like Skansen and Nordiska museet.

Many sculptures of the genre that was held in high esteem at the time can be found on the island of Djurgården, ranging from equestrian statues of kings and sculptures of mythological figures to portrait busts of famous men and women. The stories of how these sculptures came into being also tell us that this was the end of "the era of the statue", and that a new generation of sculptors with new ideals was making its entry. The most acknowledged Swedish sculptors of the time are all represented here with works of art that above all introduced new idioms and new ways of treating material

The tour starts outside the entrance of Nordiska museet and continues towards Liljevalchs konsthall. We then proceed on via Hasselbacken towards the water and finish by Carl Eldh’s sculpture of Gunnar Wennerberg.

Meeting Point: outside the entrance of Nordiska museet. Bus 44 or City tram 7.

Duration: Approximately 1.5 hours.
