A beautiful castle, the interiors are preserved, and the landscape around is practically untouched. Quite a big and interesting collection of weapons. There is a small car museum nearby.

It is a lovely castle, and quite close from the airport, so quite handy, if you have some time to kill before going to Arlanda. It also has a restaurant.

The castle is well worth a visit. Inside are several rooms richly furnished and a collection of paintings and antiques. Outside, the scenery is pleasant, with the lake as a backdrop.

Would like to do Skokloster and town of Sigtuna on the same day. How did you do it? Boat only makes quick stop at Sigtuna before going to/from castle (then on to Stockholm) but would like to see the town for a couple of hours. Advice? Thanks.

Hi, you should rent a car it s about 30 min from sigtuna to the castle. Agree the boat schedule is too short..
