Humlegården is a green oasis a stone's throw from nightclub mecca Stureplan, in the middle of the exclusive Östermalm district.
Here you can see businessmen in suits eating brown-bag lunches on the grass when it's warm and sunny, but also lots of young families and dog owners. In the beginning, the park was a royal garden established by Johan III, who grew fruit, spices, and hops. "Humlan" has been a public park and a popular spot to relax since 1869.
The park includes a large playground area, a skateboard ramp, Surfer's summer restaurant, and Omnipollos Flora, a summer biergarten. A statue of the flower king Carl Linnaeus stands in the middle of the park, and the National Library of Sweden is right next to Stureplan.
