This is a wonderful thread.

I have never seen so many varied and beautiful photos of Sweden in one place. I have been interested in Swedish architecture for a long time. I like the simplicity and solidity, and the coordination with the landscape. This makes me want to visit.

Alnarp Castle (Alnarps slott) is located approximately 10 km north of Malmö in southern Sweden. The original castle on the property was built in the 12th century. The present building was erected in 1862, in French Renaissance style.
Today the castle houses offices and meeting rooms used by the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. The castle park has the second highest variety of trees in Sweden and is open to the public all year.

Häckeberga Castle (Swedish: Häckeberga slott) is a castle in Lund Municipality, Scania, in southern Sweden. It dates back to the 14th century.
Currently the castle hosts a restaurant and a hotel.

Skokloster Castle is located on Lake Mälaren between Stockholm and Uppsala. It was built in the Baroque style between 1654 and 1676 by the wealthy military commander and count Carl Gustaf Wrangel. The castle was designed mainly by architect Caspar Vogel, but other architects involved were Jean de la Vallée and Nicodemus Tessin the Elder. When Wrangel died, the castle passed into the hands of the Brahe family. In 1967 the castle and its contents were sold by the family to the Swedish government; the family still resides here but part of the estate is now run as a museum.
The castle is a monument to the Swedish Age of Greatness, a period in the middle of the 17th century when Sweden expanded to became one of the major powers in Europe. The death of Wrangel in 1676 meant that the castle was never truly completed. The Brahe family who inherited the castle after Wrangels death, had their own family castles and did not complete the interiors. Thus the large banqueting hall remains in the same condition as the builders left it in the summer of 1676, complete with their tools. Skokloster Castle is the only building in Europe with a complete 17th-century building site of equal authenticity. Some rooms in the castle are unchanged since the time when the castle was first built. Others have been preserved using the same materials and building techniques as used in the 17th century.
The interiors of the castle are considered to be especially well preserved, despite being made of original material much of which is more than 300 years old and in a building without modern heating in a cold climate. It is not known exactly why the building preserves textiles and furniture so well, but it is thought to relate to the unusually slow changes in temperature during seasons.
The other, finished, parts of the castle displays the full, sumptuous splendour of the Baroque. The castle's detailed chambers are home to remarkable collections of paintings as well as furniture, textiles and silver and glass tableware. One of the most famous paintings is the 16th century Vertumnus by Italian master Giuseppe Arcimboldo. It pictures the face of Holy roman emperor Rudolf II as the roman god of the seasons using fruits and vegetables. The painting was taken as war booty in Prague in the 17th century.

Åkeshov manor (Åkeshovs slott), Stockholm

Was posted a few years back by Hasse, but I think he forgot to post pictures of the marvellous roccoco interior of Agneta Wrede's atrium.

The manor was built in the 1650s and remodeled in the 1720s with Carl Hårlemann as architect.

Quite stunning.
