Beautiful castle

The number one thing to see is this beautiful old castle from the 12 century located in the very middle city center. The castle is surrounded by water. There are guided tours

Beautiful castle in the heart of Orebro. The old town, though very small, is charming, and this is the most interesting site. If you want to visit the castle outside the Summer period, there are guided visits, on Sat (not so sure if also on Sun).

Charming old stone castle in the middle of Orebro with parts from 1200, rebuilt and expanded during Carl XII time. Such a romantic setting surrounded by water all around with many sitting areas around well tended parks. Unfortunately, the inside is very sparsely furnished with old furniture as the castle was not extensively used. Since the 1800's though, part of... More

Very interesting and historic. It was about a 15-minute walk from my hotel and it was very much worth it beautiful old building with water running around up it is a must-see however I did not pay the fee to see the inside but it's well worth it to see the outside

Alas it was closed as we visited on a Friday, the information part of the castle was open and they took the time to advise on some other activities. The walk around the castle exterior was entertaining enough as the local university was having its freshman week, with student paddling around the river/moat area on challenges.

This castle in the middle of the city surrounded by the small river "Svartån" has an exciting history. From medieval defense castle to royal castle. I recommend a guided tour.
