Lind­hol­men cast­le ruins are the remains of a cast­le that was ori­gi­nal­ly built in the 16th century.

In 1662 the cast­le was bur­ned down and then rebuilt, only to burn down again in 1792. All we can see today is the remains of one wing dating from the 17th cen­tu­ry, as well as the lar­ge gar­dens that exten­ded around the castle.

In the 17th and 18th cen­tu­ri­es, Lind­hol­men had an impor­tant role in Swe­dish histo­ry. The cast­le was a grand baro­que pala­ce, with towers, wings and an impres­si­ve park con­tai­ning out­buil­dings and sta­tues. The ruins were resto­red in 1931–32.
