The tower, now known as Bredablick, was built on the present site in 1874–76 by F.A. Wästfelt. He was a regimental surgeon and was later personal physician to King Oscar II. Wästfelt had visited Italy and had there been inspired to build a belvedere or tower from which to enjoy the view. He also had plans for a sanatorium on the site at which Stockholmers could take the waters and breathe the clear forest air.

The belvedere was long considered a sight well worth seeing but financially the business was not a success. In 1893 the tower was renamed Bredablick (the home of the god Balder according to Norse mythology). It now functions as an office building.
