What a magnificent castle built in the 1200's truly stimulates the imagination of times that were. An Oland Treasure. Free of charge to walk around the outside, parking needs paying (various charges), dog friendly.

Unfortunately, visited in the off-season. But enjoyed walking around outside and looking over the Strait of Kalmar and the charming town of Borgholm. Worth the trip!
