Impressive for a quick 2 hour tour, good views to the water from the slott. the walk to nature-reserve outside is impressive but difficult with small children. Overall nice to see when you are in oland but not must :)

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!

I'm generally a fan of visiting ruins and Borgholm is no exception. It's large and you can take your time walking across the walls and exploring little chambers. It should only take you about two hours and definitely go on a day with nice weather!
