Thank you Tiz. I think it´s rugosa.

I am guessing that it is a Rosa villosa, but it can also be a Rosa rugosa which has a bit more grey-green colour on the leaves. But the main reason for my ID suggestion is the surface of the petals that seemes to be a bit wrinkeled.
The Rugosa species name comes from the Latin rugosus (wrinkled) and refers to the leaves wrinkled surface.

Both species has many subspecies due to cultivation. If you know danish (and understands Swedish) here is a link with more information

I hope this helps
Best regards
