Örlogshemmet was founded in 1908 by Queen Victoria (wife of King Gustaf V Adolf).
The purpose was to give young sailors of the Royal Swedish Navy an opportunity to stay on land, when visiting Stockholm. And at a very friendly price too.
Örlogshemmet has over the years, become more and more popular, not only among military personell. Allthough most of our guests work for, or are guests to, the Swedish Defence.
