Hagaparken — a lovely, green park located on Brunnsviken Lake in the Solna suburb about 5 km north of the city — is a popular running destination at any time of year. ‘Haga’, as it is known, is Sweden’s purest version of an ‘English park’, with beautifully landscaped paths, architecturally significant buildings, and three royal palaces. It’s also the site of many historical landmarks: the Chinese Temple; Turkish Kiosk; and the Royal Burial Ground. Within the park is also Haga Palace, the residence of Crown Princess Victoria and her family.
The park offers several scenic paths which are great for running. One good option is to make a loop along around Brunnsviken Lake. It’s about 13 km. Some sections are right along the lake, and others are just inland. There are many additional km of paths. There are map kiosks well spread throughout the park to help you plan a desired loop.
Hagaparken is home to Parkrun, a free group 5k held every Saturday morning. You can see the course map and learn more here.
