  • Very beautiful place. I visited it during some kind of festival and there was people and shops everywhere, but still the building is superb.
  • Lovely old castle right next to the baths and the zoo. The museum inside isn't really worth the money, stick to looking from outside.
  • Wonderful architecture on the exterior of this beautiful castle. It is lit up nicely at night time.
  • Castle was not open when we visited. I expected to go in. It's worth seeing to take a picture, but don't plan to spend more than 30 minutes here.
  • Located near Hösök tere this castle has a beautiful architecture, there is also a museum that you can visit
