Timespent: Less than 1hour The nature surrounding it is pretty, but visiting for only the ruin, it will be a very short trip. Advise: Definitely go see it if you are in växsjö, or close to växsjö and have nothing else to do.

Not much to see inside, but the surroundings are very pretty. A bit outside of the city centre. Offers some great photo opportunities.

Ruins are not impressive however the surroundings and the nature around the ruins are. I did not enter the castle ruins however even from outside, it is a nice place to walk around and take pictures. Perfect for a relaxing weekend in a sunny day.

Small fortress It is located on the island, far from the center. Excellent nature. Inside - destroyed, but very beautiful views around. The entrance costs 40 kroons. It is necessary to look.

I was there last Sunday 14th of May, and it depends what you expect in advance. It is well maintained, the surroundings is beautiful and there are not many things to do. You can take a boat ride. If you have a good guide who...More

Nice place to visit especially at summer when the café is open. There is a lot of history connected to this place and worth to look up before you go there as I guess it gives the visit some more value. At summer you can...More
