Central Stockholm Hotel

Hotel

Few hotels in Stockolm are located next to a leafy park, framed by beautiful turn on the century buildings. A little reminiscent of London, in some ways. But hotel Tegnerlunden is housed in a more modern building. Six storeys high, with a light, airy, rooftop breakfast room.

In days gone by, the wind turned the sails of windmills up in the park. Now it whispers gently through the treetops, bringing a breath of fresh air when you open your window. Relax and savour the tranquil atmosphere that imparts new strength for what tomorrow may bring.

Our Story

Our Story

Tegnérlunden – the hill that became a park

Tegnérlunden is one of Stockholm’s typical hill parks and was laid out in the 1890’s. Before it was a park, the hilltop was home to the Barnhus mill that ground corn and the HampStamp mill that produced hemp. A spring, over which a spa was built in the 1940s, rises from the summit, running over a paved streambed down the hillside to a little pond. Close to the pond, you’ll find a playground and a boules court, and opposite the entrance to the hotel, a pergola and a small flower garden.

The Tegnér after whom the park was named in 1885, is, of course, Sweden’s first “best-selling author”, Esaias Tegnér, a bishop and national poet, famed far beyond Sweden’s borders

Walk in the masters’ footsteps

You’ll see him as soon as you approach the hotel. Impressive and powerful, he clenches his muscles above the steep slope of Tegnérgatan. This bronze monument to August Strindberg was created by his close friend, Carl Eldh in 1942. The inner struggle that Strindberg wages is clearly visible, all the way from our hotel windows.

At the other end of the park, down below the spa pavilion heading towards Upplandsgatan, you’ll find a slightly more unobtrusive sculpture amongst the lilac bushes. It’s Astrid Lindgren and this is the natural place for her to be because during one period of her life, she walked to work through Tegnérlunden. It was here that she gained the inspiration for Mio, my Mio amongst others, and the home address of one of the characters from the book, Bo Vilhelm Olsson, was Upplandsgatan 13 B.

As you look out over the park, you might notice that it is home to an unusual number of birds. Perhaps it was this that provided the inspiration for a book written in 2001 by Vibeke Olsson and entitled “The Blackbird in Tegnérlunden
