Orpheus Fountain

The square in front of the Konserthuset is the H飆orget (Hay Market). This has been a market place since the Middle Ages and despite the construction of a modern covered market hall - the H飆orgshallen - in 1958, the square is still a lively market place during summertime.

The main attraction at the square is the Orpheusfountain - known as Orfeusbrunnen or Orfeusgruppen - in front of the Konserthuset. The fountain was created by Carl Milles, probably the most famous Swedish sculptor of the 20th century. Milles created this large sculpture group between 1926 and 1936. He also created four marble statues that adorn the foyer of the Konserthuset. More of this sculptor's works can be found in Millesg緳den, a sculpture museum and park on the island of Liding just outside Stockholm, where Milles lived and worked for 20 years.
