Kungseken was the place at which royal excursions to Djurgården in the 19th century turned.

Kungseken

Kungseken stands just east of Manilla School, at the junction between Manillavägen and Djurgårdsvägen. The name of the oak derives from the fact that royal excursions into Djurgården during the 19th century turned here, and the bourgeoisie followed their example. The most popular day for talking a promenade onto Djurgården was 1 May, when Stockholmers, with the royal family at their head, greeted spring. The oak was also the turning point for the first Labour Day demonstration held by the labour movement in 1890. The oak has a circumference of 7 metres measured 1 metre above the ground, making it one of the 100 largest oaks in Stockholm. Its age has been estimated at 400 years.
