Steninge Castle was built in 1705 by the famous architecture Tessin the younger, who also built the Royal Palace in Stockholm. The exquisite buildings are surrounded by a spacious garden.

This castle is beautifully situated on Lake Mälaren, southeast of Sweden’s oldest town, Sigtuna. In 1999 the Steninge Palace Cultural Center opened.
The site was chosen both for aesthetic reasons and for the good connections to the capital by water. Steninge’s history dates back to the 1200’s, but the Gyllenstierna (1649 – 1735) and Von Fersen (1736 – 1839) families have left the greatest imprint on Steninge’s history.
The Queen’s Wing (Drottningflygeln) and Billiards Wing (Biljardflygein) were built between 1685 and 1687 by the well known Swedish architect Nocodemus Tessin. The widowed Queen, Hedvig Eleonora, had her bedroom in the Queen’s Wing when she was visiting Steninge developer Gyllenstierna.
