The area around Steninge has a history reaching back into prehistoric times. To the southwest of the castle there is an ancient fort with a vast view over Lake Mälaren.
Steninge Castle was inaugurated in 1705 and designed by the famous architect Nicodemus Tessin the Younger, who also designed the Royal Palace in Stockholm. The exquisite buildings are surrounded by a spacious garden. The castle’s developer Carl Gyllenstierna had a vision to show art and culture of the highest class. Centuries later, his vision still exists in Steninge.
Steninge shops and events are situated in the unique stone barn from 1873. The well-known glass design company, Kosta Boda, has a shop in the barn, selling designer glass art and glassware. You will also find a restaurant in a unique historic setting, as well as the Gallery Steninge.
The castle is a private residence and not open for tours. The park is open daily 12.00-17.00.
