Tullgarn castle is a very popular place for a daytrip along the Sörmland coastline. The pink baroque palace is nestled in a vast, lush park. All around you see wooded hills alternating with meadows, where oak trees have grown thick over the centuries. The park shows, like the castle, apparent impact of their users and their contemporaries. The park had a rectangular shape which, according to contemporary Scandinavian design, should have included both pure utility plants and flowers. In 1719 the owner, Magnus Julius De La Gardie, decided that it was time to rebuild Tullgarn the way it was before it was totally destroyed by the Russians. The following year, 1720 construction began in earnest and it was completed in 1727.
Since the 1960s, the castle has been open to the public. There is also a café, gift shop and a B&B.
Open: Weekends in September, Tuesday-Sunday in June-August. Guided tours in English are at 15.00.
