Skokloster slott

Skokloster slott lies on the shore of Lake Mälaren. It was something of a surprise to discover since I was following signs toward a motor museum.

Obviously more of a summer place than a winter place it was quite quiet in the area, with some work going on on the castle during its winter closure. The gardens show the remains of the formal layout, but without the maintainance they are now somewhat sad and sorry for themselves. The avenues of trees outlining the garden, though, are mostly the original lime trees planted during the 1600s. Leading to wonderful avenues of ancient trees around the perimeter.
