The castle, designed by Nicodemus Tessin the Elder, was the favourite residence of several queens. Completed in 1681, it was only furnished between 1767 and 1776 and decorated in Gustavian style. During the first half of the 19C, it fell into favour with the royal family and became one of the preferred country residences. The major pictorial collection includes paintings by animal painter David Klöcker von Ehrenstrahl (1628-1698). Concerts are held in summer.
