The castle in Linköping is quite nice. I did not go inside to visit the museum, but the surroundings are quite nice, with the garden and the river. Nice place for a picnic also!

The lady that staffs this palace is so friendly and inviting. She is eager to educate you on the history of Linkoping and the area. The museum is not elaborate but good for a bit of local color and history.
