The Garden of Dreams

Exhibition opening 5 June

An exhibition about when the dream of Skokloster Castle was to become a reality in the 17th century, a sprawling Baroque park with avenues, fountains and sculptures was included in the plans. The grand design of the park was meant to reflect the Wrangel family’s success, status and power.  Here there would be a garden with rippling water and time for recreation, an orchard with apples, pears and cherries, as well as climbing hops for flavouring the beer.
