History

The story of Svaneholm’s castle starts on an islet out in Svaneholmssjön, which is located in Skurup’s municipality 25 minutes east of Sweden’s third largest city, Malmö.

Svaneholm Castle began to be built in 1530. The Gothic Renaissance castle’s first owner is Mourids Jepsen Sparre, and the castle was in the possession of the Sparres family for a long time.

In the beginning of the 19th century, however, the castle took over Rutger Macklean – free-lord, politician and military.
