Tyreslö Palace

The Palace
I visited Tyresö palace over the weekend. It's in the neighbouring municipality and the palace overlooks a very picturesque bay. The statesman Gabriel Gustafsson Oxenstierna inherited the land here in 1620 and had the castle built. Fredrik Magnus Piper added the English garden in 1770. The castle has changed owners a few times during the centuries. The last private owner was Claes Lagergren and his American wife Caroline, born Russell. The owner today is the Nordiska Museet and it is open for the public. I will show you more photos from the surroundings in the coming days.

Great castle in that strong calvinistic northern style.
