Uppsala Castle is a 16th-century royal castle in the historic city of Uppsala, Sweden. Throughout much of its early history, the castle played a major role in the history of Sweden.

The medieval Archbishop's Castle in Uppsala was close to the site of the present-day Archbishop's Palace, west of the cathedral, and was confiscated by King Gustav I Vasa during the protestant reformation. King Gustav I ordered the construction of the renaissance castle in 1549, on the present site on a hill south of Uppsala Cathedral, with the old Archbishop's Castle being used for building material and subsequently demolished.
