I visited the place three times. Unfortunately now the boat trip from Uppsala is closed but one can also go there by UL bus. The castle is very beautiful with pleasant surroundings. Exclusive collection of the castle is only visible through guided tour.

3 cafes outside of castle and if a dry day, consider picnic.
Also worth visiting adjacent church
