    The castle is käynninarvoinen. Furniture is scarce. The Castle has good views of the Valley. All within easy reach.

    Town Hall with partly preserved medieval rooms of about 1450. A Hall is also used as a wedding hall with old original ceilings.

  • The museum has a very nice collection of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs and remains from Egyptian civilisation. The items of ivory from the ice age are very precious and takes us back to thousands of years. The guided tour in English was really insightful and interesting.
  • You can get into the museum or just walk though the castle. It's a imponent construction that would transport you to a medieval era
  • Very beautiful location and a nice view.
  • Awesome views of city. Free entrance to the grounds
  • The castle itself is nice, but not remarkable as castles go. What I like most is that it's open, accessible, and integrated into the city better than many other I've visited. It's easy to wander in and check it out without having to make a trip out of it.
