The history of this legendary castle stretches back over 800 years. Its present appearence dates from the 16th century, when the Vasa kings rebuilt it in the style of a Renaissance palace, with furnishings in the continental manner.

The castle then saw its most glorious period as a stronghold of royal power, although it had already played an important role in Scandinavian politics, particularly as the meeting place for the signing of the Kalmar Union in 1397.
