The Council Chamber was probably one of the more lavish rooms in the Royal Apartments at Gripsholm Castle, as the ceiling shows. The tour allows you to see and read about the amber cabinet, the ivory-topped table, the cabinet of curiosities, King Karl XV's gilded leather-effect wall covering and King Gustav IV Adolf's piano.
Duke Carl's Chamber
