On the shores of Lake Mälaren, Gripsholm Castle towers powerfully and fairytale-like over the idyllic small town of Mariefred in Södermanland.

Gripsholm is known as Gustav Vasa's castle, as it was he who built the castle here in 1537.

Take time to wander slowly through the many rooms and winding passages. Gripsholm Castle is filled with over four-hundred years of history.
