Then, a 100 years ago the Sigtuna Foundation was built with the aim to inspire human thought and reflection. Society has changed in many ways since then, but the ambition is still the same: to offer an open space for people with different backgrounds, traditions, and viewpoints to meet, interact and learn from one another in atmosphere of mutual respect. During the years The Sigtuna Foundation has hosted meetings in the borderland between science and scholarship, culture, society, politics, and faith-based communities, as well as organized a spectrum of international conferences in collaboration with universities and other organizations from many parts of the world.

The Sigtuna Foundation, with its centenarian history, has a unique atmosphere built as a combo of Italian monastery and a Swedish castle. All the guest rooms are individually decorated and in the center of the venue you find a rose garden with a rippling fountain. The venue has a full restaurant, and all meals will be served in the dining room. Breakfast is included in the price as well as free Wi-Fi, and the reception is staffed around the clock.
