Magnificent castle

Drove around Orebro to see interesting places and found this marvelous castle. Did not get to see inside though. Wish we had more time to explore Orebro.

I love castles and orebro castle is near to the hotel I stay. The problem, it only opens on weekends. That is such a downer. The castle look fantastic from the outside though.

Impressive castle, in the middle of a gorgeous park. We passed trough Orebro going from Oslo to Stockholm and it was the best place to stop, with this lovely castle to be visited, in a very calm and quiet beautiful city.

The castle is situated at the centre of the city so it is very easy to access. There are guided tours in Swedish and in English, the tickets can be purchased at the tourist office that is located in the castle. I highly recommend the guided tour, although the interior of the castle is not as beautiful as the outside... More

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

The city is so wonderful itself that it is impossible not to fall in love with it at a first glance and even though if this first glance is on this amazing Castle. A must to see once in Orebro.

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
