Skokloster Castle and Lake Mälaren

The architecture, the intact interiors and the vast collections make this palace one of the prime castles of Baroque Europe. Discover unique paintings, furniture and room interiors from the 17th century.
Skokloster Castle was built in baroque style between 1654 and 1676 and is a major monument from the period when Sweden was one of the most powerful countries in Europe. It is also said to be one of Sweden's most beautiful castles.
Dazzling splendor and brilliant treasures
The exhibition Dreams of Skokloster - between the battlefield and the starry sky. The exhibition tells the story of the castle and shows highlights from it´s unique collection. A collection containing world-famous paintings, books, costumes and celestial globes.
Visit the castle is like traveling back in time, to the luxury of the nobility and to an everyday life that it looked like for 350 years. In the castle you will find furniture, wallpapers, paintings and gemstones that all carry a story.

There is free admission to the castle, which includes the exhibitions on floors 1 and 2.
