The Uppsala castle was built in the 1540s, and many crucial events in Swedish history have been played out here, such as the Sture Murders in 1567, and the decision by Gustav II Adolf that Sweden should participate in what would later develop into the Thirty Years' War.

Nowadays, Fredens Hus (House of Peace) is here, which includes an exhibition about the former UN Secretary General Dag Hammarskjöld and his achievements. The castle also houses Uppsala konstmuseum (Uppsala Art Museum), with its contemporary art exhibitions and the university’s art collection.
