Skokloster Castle — visit an untouched baroque castle
Skokloster Castle is one of the most well-preserved baroque castles in existence. It was built in the 17th century, when Sweden was a military superpower. The creator Carl-Gustaf Wrangel had a castle built with only the best materials and the most luxurious objects. Most of the castle remains untouched since it was built more than 350 years ago. All in all, there are about 50,000 items!
The whole setting is a magnificent experience where most people will find their treasures. Take the opportunity to go on a tour where you can see the parade hall and the Armoury, among other things. The castle arranges a of children's activities, so even the younger ones appreciate the castle excursion.
The park, with its avenues and fruit trees, is perfect for lazy picnics and happy summer games. This year's summer exhibition is about the magnificent Baroque park that was planned around the castle. Many things remained dreams, but you can discover others for yourself. You can also go on a cultural tour and learn more about the park.
In the Castle Café you are served freshly-baked pastries, sandwiches and home-made lunches. You can choose between sitting outside in the shade of the large linden trees or inside under the arches in the room that in the 18th century was called Little kitchen.
