Tullgarn Palace was given to King Gustav V as a wedding gift on his marriage to the German Princess Victoria. The king used Tullgarn as his summer residence. The first palace to be built on the grounds was built in the sixteenth century, but was replaced in the 1720s by the palace we see today. In 1770, the palace was purchased by the state and handed over to Duke Fredrik Adolf. He carried out extensive renovations, and many of the halls and apartments open to the public today are proof of his craftsmanship. Among the attractions at Tullgarn is Tullgarnsservisen (the Tullgarn porcelain set), which was specially ordered by Adolf Fredrik from China in the late 1700s. Tullgarn offers the visitor both an inn and a café, and if you want to bring a picnic basket along, you can eat in the surrounding park. You get to Tullgarns slott by commuter train to Södertälje hamn and then take bus number 702 to Tullgarns allé.
