Castle of Bosjökloster

Listed under Castles & Palaces in Gotaland, Sweden.

Pin It

The Castle of Bosjökloster was built as a nunnery on placid Lake Ringsjön by the Benedictine Order in the early 12th century. It remained a convent into the early 1600s, but then changed hands a number of times, being bought and sold by private owners and families. After being forgotten about for some time, the castle was renovated in the 18th century and has belonged to the Bonde family since 1908. The beautiful medieval estate is famous for its gardens and park, especially the Thousand Year Old Oak which grows at the park’s entrance.
