The oldest parts of Linköping Castle stems from the 1100s and the castle is the oldest secular building in Sweden. Large parts of Linkoping burned down in 1700, including the town hall. At that time the castle was abandoned and dilapidated and was instead being used as the city jail. The eastern parts of the castle's wings were turned into prison. The castle is today the governor's reception rooms and private home. The north wing has been rebuilt for Linköping Castle and Cathedral Museum.
