This palace, which is best described as a very graceful stately home, was built in the 19th Century for King Karl XIV Johan, as an escape from the very formal way of life in the Royal Palace.  He and his family used it as a summer home.One of the most interesting features of the palace is its design and the way it was erected, which was in the prefabricated style – not the norm for palaces.    

During the summer, the palace, which has been maintained in its initial style, is open to the public for a fee.  You can take a guided tour if you so wish.
