  • From Vadstena Castle at the Center, a walk along the Lake Vettern until Abbey where the ancient Abbey, the monastery (now a Museum) and the Vastena Klosterlkyrka. The Church holds the remains of Saint Bridget and a life-sized wooden sculpture of the Saint. Brigid is the patron saint of Sweden and Europe, died in Rome in 1373 and was subsequently transferred to the Swedish Cathedral. With the reformation has begun the dismantling of the monasteries but that of Vadstena was rescued because many novices were noble: also the sister of the King Gustav Vasa was a nun in Vadstena! Today it is a Lutheran Cathedral known as celestial Blue marble columns to the veins in the Church. The size and the late Gothic architecture makes the Interior very impressive. The splendid organ, Crypts, the wooden statues and frescoes adorn the Interior and walls.

  • Cold November morning and we are stepping into warm and spacious church. Wonderful atmosphere, great works of art, stained glass windows. One feels very special in this place. Our visit was out of sea...  more »
  • This church towers with its special-1400 even feel from a time when Vadstena was ruled by a powerful monastery

  • Although there is klosterhotellet! Holy Birgitta's old convent, but the nuns today is a bit from there. Opposite on the other side of the Park.

  • Vadstena Abbey is not what is offered on the web.

  • This is the medieval Abbey. It is very much worth seeing. The present Convent: St. Bridget's convent/abbedi Pax Mariae is, however, down by the water, across the road. We have tried to change this several times, but failed. Best Wishes, M Maria O. Ss. S. Abbess of St Bridget's abbedi Pax Mariae
