Kristineberg Palace

Stockholm, Sweden

Kristineberg Palace in Kungsholmen was built around 1750 for the businessman R. Schröder. The palace was surrounded by parks and the property included a great deal of the surrounding land. In 1864 the property was bought by the Swedish Freemasonry and additional construction on the palace was made. Stockholm City bought the land in 1921 and started building the Kristineberg district, and today part of the palace is used as a school.

Amazing place. So much history and culture to pick up and absorb. The staff are incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and always happy to share information about the palace. The very visible pride, dedication and eagerness of the staff humming about the place (and with Gusto!) makes the visit here just that much more exciting. Tip: Ask questions and take in the experience.

Absolutely stunning interior! The rooms are so elegant and the colors are amazing. I would also reccomend checking the schedule to see when the changing of the guards takes place, very neat thing to watch! I would definitely reccomend visiting!

A very nice and royal place. You can feel the royal atmosphere. The courtyard is not so big but still is worth visiting.

Wieskirche

The Pilgrimage Church of Wies (Wieskirche) is an oval rococo church, designed in the late 1740s by Dominikus Zimmermann. It is located in the foothills of the Alps in the municipality of Steingaden.

The sanctuary of Wies is a pilgrimage church extraordinarily well-preserved in the beautiful setting of an Alpine valley, and is a perfect masterpiece of Rococo art and creative genius, as well as an exceptional testimony to a civilization that has disappeared.

The hamlet of Wies, in 1738, is said to have been the setting of a miracle in which tears were seen on a simple wooden figure of Christ mounted on a column that was no longer venerated by the Premonstratensian monks of the Abbey. A wooden chapel constructed in the fields housed the miraculous statue for some time. However, pilgrims from Germany, Austria, Bohemia, and even Italy became so numerous that the Abbot of the Premonstratensians of Steingaden decided to construct a splendid sanctuary.
