I higly recommend a visit to this castle north west of Stockholm. If you have an interest of history and are curious to understand an important epoch of European history, this the castle to visit!

Didn't go into the castle itself, but it's quite well preserved from the outside and the area around it together with the proximity to the lake make it a very pleasurable place for a walk. Accessible by UL bus as well.

This baroque castle has it all - a beautiful exterior as well as interior, nice surroundings and interesting exhibitions. Do not forget to have something to eat in the café/restaurant and also visit the beautiful church.

I arrived by trip boat from Sigtuna. Best way as gives great river view Take time to look around the different rooms as full of fascinating items. 3 cafes outside of castle and if a dry day, consider picnic. Also worth visiting adjacent church

It's nice that the castle offers free entrance, but this only includes a limited part of the castle with sparse information. There are, however, timely dressed guides available to ask for more. Well worth a quick visit. The guided tours and special exhibitions provide a...More
