Tyresö Palace

Tyresö Palace The Palace
This was the halfway-point during my bike ride to Tyresö last week. The Tyresö Palace. It sits on a hill overlooking the Kalvfjärden bay and the nearby church. It was built by Gabriel Gustafsson Oxenstierna who inherited the land here in 1620. Fredrik Magnus Piper added the English garden in 1770, that is where I stood when I took these two photos. The first photo is a panorama made from 16 photos. The last private owner was Claes Lagergren and his American wife Caroline, born Russell. The owner today is the Nordiska Museet. It is open for the public and there are guided tours quite often. There are also a cafe and a restaurant, and both were open during my visit.

So now a lovely museum. Glad it wasn't torn down. Hope it can survive in its current reincarnation.
