Trails in Dagmar Park
In total, there are a few kilometres of trails in the area. The area is not maintained in the winter. Some of the trails are easily accessible, while others are demanding due to wide variations in elevation. Parts of the area are accessible to visitors with wheelchairs, rollators and prams. Assistants are recommended for visitors in wheelchairs.
Trail surfaces vary from gravel to hard-packed sand, with some sections having softer sand. In wet weather, the trails may be slippery in patches, as there are roots and moss in the trails.
From the parking area, there is an approximately 350-metre trail leading to Dagmar’s spring. The first part of the trail is easily accessible. There, you can stop and look out over the spring and its beautiful, fairy tale-like setting.
Stone monument commemorating the visit by the Czar and Czarina
If you want to see the source up close, there are sturdy stairways with handrails that lead down to Dagmar’s spring and the monument.
Kejsarbordet - “Czar’s Table”
An approximately 500-metre trail leads to Kejsarbordet, or the “Czar’s Table”. The trail is demanding due to roots, sand and rugged terrain. Assistants are recommended for visitors in wheelchairs.
Bring along a picnic basket, just like the Czar and Czarina did in their day, find a nice spot to sit and enjoy the fabulously beautiful setting.
The mouth of the spring is located right next to the beach, hence the name Källviken. The area has no public swimming beach, but there is a beautiful natural shore here. You can enjoy lazy days in the sun and cool off with a refreshing dip! The trail leading down to the beach is quite steep, as the terrain is quite rugged here.
A beautiful 1.5-km trail leads to the western section of the area, where there are fortifications from the Crimean War at Vitsand. Once there, let your imagination take you back to the time of the Crimean War.
There is a one-kilometre trail to the sand beach at Skutviken in the eastern section of the area. At Skutviken, you can enjoy view out over the bay and see Ekenäs, part of the city of Raseborg (visitraseborg.com).
