Djurgårdsbrunnskanalen Stockholm

Djurgårdsbrunnskanalen – Countryside of Stockholm

Djurgårdsbrunnskanalen makes for a perfect stroll any time of the year, with the highlight in spring being the bird life at Isbladskärret and the Kärleksstigen (Path of Love) which was a wedding gift from the World Wide Fund for Nature to Crown princess Victoria and her husband Prince Daniel. Follow the signs from Djurgårdsbrunnskanalen, near Isblandskärret, to find the path.

In the summer, the channel is particularly inviting to go kayaking in, the autumn offers a range of beautiful colors as the many trees shift colors, and on a sunny day in the winter, the serene nature makes it worthwhile to defy the cold. If you are up for a longer walk, I recommend starting on the western shore and exploring Diplomatstaden with some impressive residences of ambassadors.

After crossing the bridge, Djurgårdsbron, follow the shore to the left and walk through the Blue Gate. It could be a good idea to stop for lunch, an early dinner or at least a Swedish “fika” at Rosendals trädgårdar. After continuing a bit further you will see the Kaknästornet (Kaknäs tower) which is the TV tower. Later, you will come to Isbladskärret and shortly after you might want to leave by bus. If so, take bus 69 from Edelstams väg to the Central station (about 16 minutes).

To start this walk you may take tram 7 from the Central station in the direction Waldemarsudde and get off at the bridge (Djurgårdsbron). The ride takes about 5 minutes.
