  • It's bit of an odd one as we cannot find anything either positive or negative about the castle. It looks quite emposing on top of the hill but just doesn't have much to form a view about!  more »
  • Only a small part of this huge building that rises to the highest hill in the city is accessible to visitors. And it is now a museum on 3 levels that allows to browse the permanent collection of the museum and often a very interesting temporary exhibition. During our visit, we discovered Anselme Boix-Vives, a Spanish painter, naturalized French, who settled in the 1920s in Moutiers, Savoy. A formidable alter-globalist before the hour, he painted about 2,400 very colorful works accessible to the youngest. So we spent a good hour and a half walking through the various rooms of the museum. And of course, like many cultural space in Sweden, the visit is free.

  • The place looks nice, quite and all surrounded with green area, it's on the top and give you a very stunning view of the city. Recommended :) .. note: Haven't been inside yet.
  • Great ruins with lovely hour-long guided tour. Amazing how much of the original stonework remains from the mid-1500s. Spent 90 minutes here, very enjoyable. Cafe inside is excellent, plenty of rooms to find a seat and each room was a different temperature, which was fun. We were warm so we scouted the coolest castle room to enjoy our Cafe refreshments Huge bathroom is accessible, meaning setup for handicapped very nicely. There are two free museums on site as well as the ruins which charges small admission.
