Well worth a visit to the remains of the original old castle first. Take a guided tour of the main "Slott" as the guide is really funny and very knowledgable!
With the cost of 80 SEK per person you would assume to see something else than mere ruins. There were no real exhibitions, the area although in three floors was quite small and you would need a good imagination to get a sense how the kings and queens lived back then. The "kings private garden" was only a flat lawn.
Our tour guide was simply splendid, she made a rather empty castle come alive through the historic details she provided about the buildings and its inhabitants. It was great fun. The 45 minutes were over before we knew it.
There is a lot of activity around this area in the summer with many people strolling, dining and meeting up with friends.
We could not visit the newer castle as it was closed when we were there, but we had a chance to visit the original castle which was being restored. I have lived in Uppsala, but had never seen this before, worth the $. It was about $40 for 4 of us, and it was well worth it.
From almost everywhere in Uppsala and the Uppsala plains you see the castle towering on its hill. And of course vice versa you have excellent views from the castle, so it is worth climbing the hill, even with your heavy SLR camera. Like everybody else here I need to mention that there is actually not to much else to see,... More
The absolute site to have a nice view of the city, though the castle itself is not something spectacular to see.
The castle is interesting and provides great views of the City. The castle is a bit odd in that it is not finished on the west side (wing extending south from the NW corner was not completed). Interested spot nonetheless and adjacent to the Linnaeus Garden.
Nice for a walk, amazing for photos! The view of the city is beautiful, you can see everything 360, from the cathedral, old town, industrial part of the town, university, botanical garden and back to the cathedral again.
the castle was very nice and extremely large. But we went there on a sunday morning and there was no one there. We could not go in to take a tour which was a bit disappointing.
