  • Our visit to Lofstadt was on a weekday when we cycled out from Norrkoping. The grounds are pleasant and reasonably well presented. The buildings appear to be recently repainted and are well preserved....  more »
  • We were on a visit to the Inn but after eating a delicious lunch so we decided to also look at the Castle or most wings. In one room was a very interesting exhibition about Sweden's 100 years as a great power. Feasting Hall was the next stop which has a beautiful ceiling and which had, probably, fine paintings. Unfortunately, they have almost completely disappeared with the ravages of time. It would be nice if one could recreate them. You can still feel the atmosphere and how a feast could seemed at the time. The stable had been made into the Castle Shop and the funny thing was that we kept the booths and even the names of the animals stood there. Well worth to go of the E4 for some culture and peace

  • Really beautiful place. We had a perfect kids party here.
  • A must see destination. The castle is exciting with blood stains and all. Nowadays, there is also a garden center, adjacent to the Castle. Add Café and restaurant. Then it will be a full day.

  • A great opportunity to see how a noble from the early 20th century looked like. Have been here many times and have never encountered a bad guide! You learn always something new.
