Visit in your own pace

Experience the castle's exhibitions, castle park, shop and surroundings on your own.

The first floor

Welcome and visit the Entrance floor and the Parade floor. Here you can experience the environment as it looked over 350 years ago when the castle was built. Everywhere there are beautiful objects to gaze at – furniture, paintings, textiles, glass, porcelain and weapons.

Dreams of Skokloster

Dreams of Skokloster – Between Battlefield and Starry Sky is our permanent exhibition. By moving some of our splendid artefacts down to the ground floor, we have improved accessibility so that more people can enjoy our unique collections. The exhibition contains the castle’s unique collection of magnificent artefacts, with world-famous paintings, books, costumes and celestial globes to tell the exciting history of Skokloster.

The castle park

Some of the trees in the avenues of limes are as old as the castle. There is also an orchard with local apple varieties such as Skokloster Grågylling and Skokloster Rennet.

In spring, snake's head fritillaries, Turk's cap lilies and other plants are in bloom. They may have been brought by nuns at the convent that was once here. The large lawns in front of the castle lend themselves to boules and picnics.
