Stockholm: Rosendäls Tradgård

Before the boyfriend and I went to Stockholm, my sister sent me a link to Rosendäls Tradgård and recommended that I check it out as there are many really good reviews written about it. Rosendäls Tradgård is located in Djurgården and we made a half day trip out of it by visiting the Vasa Museum first and then walking across the island and through the park to Rosendäls Tradgård.

From their website they say, "Rosendäls garden is an open garden, with the main purpose of presenting biodynamic (organic) garden cultivation to the general public". I really enjoyed visiting Rosendäls as it was such a special place in the center of Stockholm. While we were there we walked past and saw several vegetable patches, rows of flowers (which you can cut yourself and buy at the garden), and a small orchard. We had a little fika there and enjoyed a cinnamon bun and a cardamom bun from their bakery and although we didn't try anything from their cafe, many people were ordering soups and sandwiches from there and everything is made with organic ingredients. This is a great place to visit for people who have green thumbs and for those who are interested in urban farming. It's also a wonderful place to enjoy a cup of coffee and some pastries on a great patio full of wild flowers and greenery. I'd definitely recommend spending an hour or two here the next time you are in Stockholm!
