In the most beautiful place you could imagine. Where the ocean meets land on an infinite horizon. This is where Rudolf Abelin created his seven period gardens. Now we welcome you to a place where we let elegance, sensibility and experiences be our guiding-star. We invite you to come here to stroll, enjoy a concert or eat something good. To dream away or visit an exhibition. To get married or celebrate a birthday. To create values of your own.

Elsa's and Lisa´s thoughts on their exhibitions and this year's theme!Contact us
Victoriahuset and its glass pavilions accommodate exciting exhibitors such as Elsa Billgren, Agneta & Carolina Gynning and Lisa Abelsson, whose sculptures can be seen in the garden too.
Villa Abelin features several different exhibitions in the summer: Björn Persson whose fantastic photographs have managed to draw attention to endangered animals in Africa; Fernand Fonssagrives, one of the first practitioners of what is now known as Beauty Photography.
Molin’s, a tribute garden to Ulla Molin, created by garden profile Heidi Palmgren, and Hasse Andersson’s Happy Garden, specially designed for children, are new this year.
Knowledge makes us grow. This year we will invite you to workshops, lectures and courses, inspired by our gardens. We will be visited by Sara Bäckmo, Cecilia Wingård, Gunnel Karlsson, Annika Christensen and Lisen Sundgren.
Every year we seek inspiration for a current theme in one of our period gardens at Norrviken. Inspired by the past we make our interpretation of the ideals of the baroque by means of baroque-inspired art, music, flower experiences, food, drink and a lot more.
A warm welcome to a completely ”baroque” year!
Enjoy a nice cup of coffee, feel the smell of freshly baked bread or just satisfy your hunger with a good lunch. Group lunches, memorable events such as christenings, special occasions and weddings are also arranged here.
Norrvikens Trädgårdar is a dream fulfilled. The founder Rudolf Abelin came to Båstad in 1905, looking for a place where he could create a “living garden museum”.
