This castle has a lot of stories and holds a detailed and intricate history which can be seen on each of the walls. Even as you first walk in there are bricks missing from the walls where cannon balls had struck. Unfortunately the castle had a fire in the past and thus what you see today, it was also rebuilt...

The ruins are just ramparts and the stonework, but the castle was big, so there is still a lot to explore.

A more than a thousand years old castle of war, grandeur, negligence and summer festivals. Interesting and long guiding tour included in the entrance fee. The architecture and failed intentions are simular to the later fullfilled buildings of the Royal Palace in Stockholm. Ambitious and artlike exhibition. Nice views of the Kalmar Strait from the eastern windows. Our kids shot... More

Take your time and cross the Bridge, go north and enjoy the drive. You will end up seeing some white camels!! yes white camels, really interesting. Make sure you make it to the top of the island where you can have fun driving some small roads along the coast.

This amazing slott (palace) is a conserved ruin and is situated on the island of Öland. Parts of it reportedly date back to the end of the 1100s, having had several rounds of updates and rebuilds in the still distant past since that time. Signage in the car park explains some of the history and the important role the slott... More

Borgholms Slott is a very interesting place. If you love history Borgholms Slott is the place to visit. Basically only the structure of the castle is left. The castle was allowed to fall apart during the 1700 and 1800's. So there are no places where they have restored the castle to original, like for example at Kalmar Slott. Even so... More

We went to this ruin just over a day to have some ice cream. The ruin is walking distance to the swedish royal castel Soliden. There are several foot path's around the ruins, so it's no problem to walk off the extra pound that you gain in the close by cafe' with everything from ice cream to dinners . There... More
