Bellman Day at Hjorthagen

Bellman Day in Hjorthagen Nature Reserve is a regular feature of the Gripsholm series of concerts. Bring a picnic and enjoy Bellman's music in the beautiful nature reserve.

Listen to songs and musical poems by Bellman, with views of Gripsholm Castle and the enchanting Gripsholm Bay. Listen to tales of life in the time of Bellman as you relax on the green grass of Hjorthagen.

Hjorthagen can be reached from the visitor's car park by heading southwest (away from the entrance and the castle). Keep left after Gripsholm School.

In the event of bad weather, Bellman Day will be moved indoors to the parish hall on Kungshustorget in Mariefred.


Tickets can be purchased at Hjorthagen gate immediately before the concert begins.
