Rosendals Trädgård, Stockholm

Extracted from A Stockholm Interlude, buy yours here.

Ostensibly a working lesson in biodynamic agriculture, most visitors come not for education but to stroll in the grounds among fruit trees and bushes, past neat vegetable patches, through the rose garden and along raked gravel paths, stopping at a complex of greenhouses that also host a shop and restaurant. The garden’s produce is on offer here in salads, hot dishes and sandwiches that showcase the on-site bakery’s wonderful bread, loaves of which are also for sale, along with other food items from the gardens and beyond. Another store sells plants, gardening tools and accessories.
