  • I get a little concerned when I visit sites like this. You feel a sense of history and it is difficult to rate a site like this. Here lived and worked people for about 400 years before they were forcibly removed and the monastery was demolished. Sad story. The ruins are preserved and in three places one can go indoors. Too bad they solve the signs moved around but fantastically well with dial-up guide by phone.

  • I knew nothing about this place before I accidentally came by and stopped. So beautiful. Well preserved ruin that gave an experience of how a monastery might have looked like. The vaults were magical. Made me think of Tranströmers poem Romanesque arches. Then it is good to visit the Vadstena klostermuséum to get more meat on the bones.

  • Fine historical site of Sweden's oldest monastery. Guided tour is available, however, went around themselves and read on the boards.

  • Impressive old site, nice opportunity for a stop on the way.You can buy icecream there and they have a clean toilet, too.
  • Perfect outing in cosy surroundings. Was interesting to see, worth a visit.

  • A wonderful spot situated in the vicinity of Mount Omberg. Cozy environment to roam in and fantasize about how it would be to live here.
