Sculpture Walk in Kungsholmen

One of the reasons why sculpture is so common in public spaces is that it can also serve a practical purpose.  Many examples of this can be found on our sculpture walk through Kungsholmen. Elli Hemberg’s Butterfly in Rålambshovsparken is a fitting starting point; inviting like an open embrace, it is a lovely meeting point in the park and place for play or relaxation.

The path along the shore of Norr Mälarstrand is lined with sculptures that can be touched, climbed and used as resting places.  This walk also shows you how sculpture can work in harmony with architecture and nature; on façades, paths and in parks.  The construction boom of the 20th century brought with it a close co-operation between architects and sculptors.  In the City Hall gardens, where this walk ends, the architecture of Ragnar Östberg, Carl Eldh’s sculpture and the water of Riddarfjärden unite to form a synthesis of art which has made this one of Stockholm’s most defining spaces.

This walk starts in Rålambshovsparken and continues along Norr Mälarstrand to Kungsholmstorg, via Rådhuset and Hantverkargatan, finishing at the City Hall gardens.

Meeting Point: at The Butterfly by Elli Hemberg, Rålambshovsparken, nearest underground stop Fridhemsplan, exit Fridhemsplan.

Duration: Approximately 1.5 hours.
