Thielska Galleriet

This beautiful Art Nouveau building is off the main tourist track but well worth discovering. If it were any closer to the centre it would undoubtedly be permanently mobbed. The Thielska was completed in 1907, and was built as a private home designed to showcase the art collection of a successful banker, Ernest Thiel. Thiel was personal friends with many notable Scandinavian artists and as a result the collection includes many works by Carl Larsson, an enormously popular Swedish artist, and several pieces by the Norwegian Edvard Munch of The Scream fame. The building is located at the far end of Djurgården, the opposite end to the Vasa Museet, so to reach it you can either take a pleasantly long stroll or alternatively just jump onto the number 69 bus, which runs from Kungsholmen via Norrmalm and takes you almost to the door of the gallery.
