I was actually looking for Vinterviken, because of its link to Alfred Nobel, when I stumbled upon the delightful garden of Vintervikens Trädgården. It reminds me a bit of Rosendals Trädgård but it is also completely different. I was there in early spring, so there wasn’t much green to be seen yet, but the lovely spring sun made up for it.

Vintervikens Trädgården is located in a green oasis and you can also expect mainly organic and organic products on your plate. They serve just about everything from ice creams to soup and homemade bread. You can also enjoy tasty dishes (they have a limited, changing menu, but what I already tasted was very tasty!) and a glass of wine.
On sunny days – actually from the moment the sun peeks through the clouds – the terrace is quickly packed. When it’s a bit cooler, you can go inside the Orangerie. There you can warm up by the fire.
Around the garden café you will find, among other things, a large vegetable garden where local residents can help with gardening. All vegetables and plants are grown ecologically.
The domain is run by a group of volunteers. Although it was a cool day in April, there were many people in the garden. You order food at the food stand. As you would expect from the Swedes, everyone neatly waits their turn in the (long) line. That waiting will be rewarded! I chose the sweet potato with truffle mayonnaise. Warmly recommended! Nearby you can take long walks in nature (and along the shores of Lake Mälaren).
