Skånelaholm Manor House

The romantic castle is situated in an old cultural landscape at the beautiful surroundings of Lake Fysingen. Skånelaholm was built by the president of the Court of Appeal Andreas Gyldenklou about 1639–1643 in German-Dutch late Renaissance style. The estate was mentioned as early as 1276 when King Magnus III sold it to Sko Abbey. During the Reformation it was confiscated by King Gustav Vasa. The castle has only had a few owners and in 1962 it was donated to the Royal Swedish Academy of Letters, History and Antiquities.

The castle contains many well-preserved historical interiors and has a large collection of furniture, art, porcelain, books, allmoge (country) objects and wagons. There is also a beautiful English landscape garden. Don’t miss the large Sälna runestone in the northern part of the park. The area around Skånelaholm is particularly rich in runestones and one of the waterways of the Viking age went by here.
