Virtual tour around Tyresö Palace

The Beautiful Tyresö Palace

Today I went to Tyresö Palace to shoot some photospheres for a virtual tour.


Virtual Tour

A virtual tour requires planning. Today’s plan was to take pictures for a virtual tour around Tyresö Palace from several different locations around the palace. I started at the front of the palace and finished at the back of the palace.



Tyresö Palace is a palace from the 17th century in Tyresö, Stockholm County, Sweden, about 25 km south-east of central Stockholm.

The construction of the palace began in the 1620s by the Lord High Steward Gabriel Oxenstierna. The palace was completed in 1636. He also constructed the nearby Tyresö Church, which was inaugurated with his own burial in 1641.

The palace was inherited by Maria Sofia De la Gardie in 1648, who had married Gustaf Gabrielsson Oxenstierna, nephew of Swedish Regent and Lord High Chancellor Axel Oxenstierna. Both she and her husband’s family were extremely wealthy. Maria Sofia resided in Tyresö Palace, from where she managed her estates around Baltic Sea, until 1694. Between 1699 and 1737, the writer Maria Gustava Gyllenstierna lived in the palace.

During the 1770s the palace was modernized and the first English garden in Sweden was created. Planned by the garden architect Fredrik Magnus Piper, it is a mixture of an English park, a Swedish flowery meadow and picture out of a fairy tale – with the ancient forest as its ultimate source. The natural-appearing large-scale landscape gardens still exist today.

Equipment used

This photosphere was taken with my Canon EOS 550D and Canon 8-15mm f/4 L USM Fisheye Lens. I used a Sirui P-326S Carbon fibre monopod and the Nodal Ninja R1 head with the RD5 rotator.


All images was shot in RAW and post-processed in Camera Raw, PhotoShop, PTGui Pro and krpano Tools.
