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.

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

Most people seem to write reviews about all the things surrounding Kronoberg's castle-ruin and not the ruin itself. The entrance fee is 40 Sek or 4 euros. After a short walk over two really old and shaky bridges, you enter the courtyard with a huge...More
