It is over 100 years since visionary Rudolf Abelin founded Norrviken, realising his dream of creating a living garden museum.
This summer, the historic house and gardens will be transformed by a series of romantic exhibitions and installations.
With its seven elegant gardens, each reflecting a different style or historic period, and set in the grounds of Abelin’s stately home,
Norrviken has long been a popular destination for a day out.
This summer, its elegance is set to be shown off at its very best with the introduction of a programme of exhibitions,
New romantics events and botanical installations to intrigue and inspire, all tied together by the theme of ‘Romance’.
Highlights include an exhibition of sketches by renowned designer Hannah Wendelbo,
top-class photography exhibitions by Terry O’Neill and Anna Lauridsen,
New romantics artistic flower displays and guided tours of the gardens – including one on the theme of ‘the Wild Pantry’,
where visitors can learn how to forage for wild plants.
Food lovers will also find inspiration with the inauguration of a substantial market garden, complete with large, Victorian-style greenhouse.
For Camilla Berthilsson, Norrviken’s CEO, the introduction of an annual theme is a means of celebrating the gardens’ beauty,
while also offering something new.
“Our aim has been to build on Rudolf Abelin’s work and vision to create the world in a garden.
And working with a theme gives us a way to generate some curiosity and give our visitors a reason to come back year after year.”
