At the end of the 13th century, the Bishop of Skara started construction on Läckö Slott on the picturesque banks of Lake Vänern. Over the centuries the castle’s ownership passed to many members of Swedish royalty until it fell into the hands of Count Magnus Gabriel De la Gardie in the middle of the 17th century. His significant renovations turned the castle into the one we see today, a highly decorated, luxurious home with an impressive treasury and a stunning chapel tower.
