Strömsholm Palace, Strömsholm
Strömsholm Palace

Strömsholm Palace is built on a paved islet where the Kolbäck River meets Lake Mälaren in Strömsholm.
The Palace was built between 1669-1674 for Queen Hedvig Eleonora, and was designed by Nicodemus Tessin the Elder.
Strömsholm Palace was given to Princess Sophia Magdalena of Denmark as a wedding gift upon her marriage to the later King Gustav III of Sweden in 1766.
Strömsholm Palace is today used as a hippodrome, where equestrian competitions are held every year.

Strömsholm Palace, Strömsholm
Strömsholms Slott

I'd say this is my favourite .... nice little moat all the way around.

If only some-one could remove the main road ....

Thought I should explore the web for Strömsholms Slott and see what I could find.

scenes outside & inside

"On a small island in the Kolbäcksan River, somewhat of an Italianate stronghold, Strömsholm Slott surveys the lazy traffic of boats up and down the Strömsholm Canal.

Although it remains a royal castle, Strömsholm has been placed under the care of Sweden's National Horse Sports Association.

Within is an acclaimed collection of old equestrian paintings. Horse-riding and jumping contests are regularly held here, amid the beautiful park and its surroundings.

On a number of Thursday evenings from mid-June to mid-August, classical music concerts are held at the castle."
Has Princess Madeleine come here in the course of her equestrienne involvement?

Yes, she´s been to Strömsholm at riding camps when she was in her teens.

I was there a month ago when i had my vacation, its only 30 km from were i live so i have even been biking twice to the Grand National races there.

They were to have an exebition about royal Bernadotteweddings but the only thing i saw was some curtains with the same text as you can see in a pamflett. But many intresting paintings of royal families. The top floor has one wing completly filled with paintings of horses.

Its beautiful in the summer

Is this the palace that Carl XVI Gustav wants to hand over to Carl Philip at some point?

I never heard of the king wanting to land over a palace for Carl Philip. It wouldn't look right for the king to give use of a palace to any of his children at this point. When Madeleine was engaged it was rumored that she was going to take was going to use a 'normal' home that fell under the kings management. And I believe it was also rumored that Victoria and Daniel were going to stay at the same palace as the king and queen and just move into a different wing. So to give Carl Philip a palace would just fuel the idea that he still wants Carl Philip to be King, especial when the are all much larger and grander then Haga. Besides he has already inherited a home in southern Sweden, and also was left a house by Prince Bertil that he gets use of after Lilian passing, both of these are addition to the apartment already has in Stockholm, a fourth home is just overkill.
