Very nice place, very authentic and great scenery. You can walk inside the castle and see how they lived back then. The cafe is little and cosy, and the church next by is also "a must". Recommended!

excellent tour and scenery, we visited on our own, no tour was available on the day of our visit, but we enjoyed it very much. Much history and glimpse into the past. Beautiful grounds. Take a relaxing day and spend a couple of hours.

Absolutely stunning castle from the time when Sweden was a superpower in the north. Nothing has been removed from the castle so it is an absolute treasure for visiting. Do not miss the armoury which is included in the guided tour. Superb halfdaytour.

We visited Skokloster in June 2016. The visit takes about 2h with a guided tour and a leisurely walk on the grounds. The castle is might on the outside (although under renovation until October 2016), but it is the decorations if the inside that are worth the visit. The castle and its contents can only be passed from generation to... More

We arrived on the last day that the castle was open to the public before the winter closure and managed to catch the last tour in English - just our group of 5. Wonderful castle which really gave the feeling of what it would have been like to live there hundreds of years ago. No electric lights - we were... More

The castle is great and the whole area around it is truly mesmerising. The garden, cafes and trees are delightful. We have been here many times. This place looks nice in every season. The water is close-by for taking a ferry. A dinner ferry also starts from there to go around Sigtuna up to Uppsala.

There are several options for informative tours outside Stockholm. We visited Skokloster Castle, anhistoric castle considered to be one of the most important in Scandinavia. The castle has extensive collection of armor and guns that is well worth seeing. The castle is well preserved: many of the rooms have original furnishings and artwork. A reasonably good cafeteria style lunch was... More

Very nice castle not far from the oldest town of Sweden (Sigtuna). Lots of paintings and in particular a large collections of guns. Be aware that you need to attend a guided tour to see the upper floor, which we weren't told about. Also be aware of the opening hours, the time on the internet isn't correct (4pm instead of...
