I love old castles and this one did not disappoint me; however I was only able to drive by to view the ruins and I would have like to see them up close.

Nice place but it is not worth to travel to from very far. We visited Gränna so it was close. It has a restaurant close by you can eat

Beautiful view of the lake, but not much to see of the castle itself and some parts of it have apparently become public toilets. Still, the view is magnificent and so easy to access from the motorway.

We visited this place accidentally. We were on a field trip in Sweden, then in the middle of the way, we have taken break to have lunch. We parked on the park place of the restaurant, then spotted an underpass walk below the hallway. We...More

It’s nice to have seen it and to learn about the history of it but it’s actually not that much to see. It’s basically the remainings of a stone house and you can spend about 10-15 minutes there. However you would be able to take...More

We really enjoyed our time here. A nice little hike and amazing views of the lake and surrounding countryside. Fun to glimpse the past here. A stunning bride was getting pictures taken while we were there. It seemed a perfect backdrop for her.
