Tureborg, or Tureborg Castle, is a ruin mock castle in Uddevalla, Sweden. Built by the eccentric millionaire Ture Malmgren between the late 19th century and the early 20th century, it was constructed with inspiration from the medieval castles of the German Rhine Valley. It contained dozens of rooms, among them several full of expensive artworks, one bowling alley, a music room, and several modelled after foreign cultures. Malmgren, a political radical and newspaper owner, hosted feasts in the style of the period's national romanticism in the castle.

Abandoned after Malmgren's death, it was used for a number of purposes, until its eventual destruction by fire in 1950. Since then the remaining ruins have become an important local landmark. As of 2014, the Tureborg Society exists to help preserve the castle, clearing away growth and excavating hidden features.
