Rålambshovsparken (sometimes called Rålis) is a park in the Marieberg district in Kungsholmen, Stockholm.

This park is along the promenade between Fredhäll park and Norr Mälarstrand, and passes under a section of Västerbron.

It is also home to several sculptures: monument 'Över Yxman' by Eric Grate, the granite sculpture 'Domarring' by Egon Möller-Nielsen, 'Fjärilen' by Elli Hemberg and 'Färgtorn' by Lars Erik Falk.

History[edit]

The park opened in 1936, and was one of the first in Stockholm. It was designed by Erik Glemme, and resembles the functionalist style popular in that era.

In celebration of Stockholm's 700-year anniversary, an amphitheater was added in 1953, with capacity for 5,000 people.
