We did a private tour and he was very knowledgeable and pleasant making for great visit. Not easy to get to if you are a tourist. We came for the art but left impressed by entire visit. In summer can arrive by ferry boat

Skokloster castle is an amazing castle with some outstanding pieces of decorations and furniture. Good lunch and an excellent stone brick church next door. Second oldest stone brick church in Sweden.

A fantastic castle. This should be seen by all tourist visiting. Read the history. The guide should perhaps take a course in presentation technique and use a little fantasy to make it all more interesting. Try the freshly made waffle with strawberry jam and whipped...More
