Very well looked after, and extremely interesting. The information provided was helpful in keeping our attention focused. Especially interesting area where Eric XIV was imprisoned, and later died. Very much well worth a visit.

Unfortunately Kastelholm was closed for midsummer, but we ended up to midsummer fest in Jan Karlsgard - outdoor museum next to Kastelholm. Lots of people and traditional treats and music and dancing around the majstång! Very nice experience. Outdoor museum has several old houses you can visit and see how life was many years ago.
Tip for kids: Kastelholm castle has nice lambs around it, eating the grass. Wonderful to watch them!
Beware the large snails around everywhere, so that you don't kill them by walking over..they seem to exist everywhere on the islands.

Kastelholm Castle was originally the hunting lodge of the Swedish crown. Take a look inside and see the dungeon where Erik XIV was poisoned by his brother Johan III.

This ancient castle is a great place to visit to learn about some of the history of the area. It has been well preserved, especially considering it is over 500 years old.
