Just one of all the marvellous castles surrounding Stockholm, this is a huge one. It is from the 1630s when it, along with its church, was built by the statesman Gabriel Oxenstierna (not to be confused with the more famous Axel) who then received the land. It was modernised in the 1770s when its famous English garden was also created. Marquis Lagergren bought the castle in the 1890s and it is his interior you can see today, as the castle is open summertime in the care of Stockholm's "Nordiska Museum". He also had the exterior renovated in a Nordic Romantic style. Mainly open summertime, the castle grounds also houses a garden centre, a hostel, a guest harbour, a restaurant and a ceramics workshop and the grounds border a nature reserve so there are plenty of strolling opportunities.
