Castle cafe

The Skokloster Castle café has been privately run by Gill and Tommy Schröder since 1990. It is found in the rooms that were known in the 18th century as the “Little Kitchen”. It serves freshly baked pastries, sandwiches and home-made lunches. Choose to sit inside the charming old kitchen under a 17th century vault or outside in the shade of the lime trees with a view of Lake Mälaren.

Opening hours

The castle café has the same opening hours as the museum. Food is served between 11.00 and 16.00.
