A 17C vegetable garden was transformed in the 18C into this Baroque-style garden enclosed by walls and reserved for the royal family. After the death of Gustav III the gardens were opened to the public. Today, people come here to meet up and enjoy a range of festive events, including an ice rink in winter. To the south, the gardens open onto the east façade of the opera house and its elegant restaurant. Its night club, Café Opera, is renowned for its celebrity clientele - and long queues.
