  • Beautiful situated at Vettern. Great striking and showy. The single was characterized by lack of possessions. During the renovation.

  • Directly in the first instance, interesting story about Vadstenaslott and Sweden during the 1500-1600 century, primarily Gustav Vasa with sons. However, the Castle relatively empty and only parts of the 4th floor is furnished. The Palace has otherwise fine but empty halls. The third floor was totally turned off and not be walked on. There are some paintings to look at but otherwise it is the castle itself what there is to see. NOTE, we went not with a guide which pulls down the impression something. With a guide, it's probably much better. Are you slottsfantast, it's just right for you, but otherwise it can be a disappointment.

  • Stage in Vadstena, a small town on the Lake. The imposing Castle stands as a symbol of the place. Visit, but don't expect wonders, plans are a bit bare. We were lucky that there was "a dramatic motorcycle rally on the square.

  • The mostly empty rooms save for a bit of art can be a bit disappointing but the guided tour itself was nice. Probably best to visit during the summer since it can be very cold in stone castles.
  • There isn't a lot of things or items that are displayed inside the castle. The museum is more about what each room has been used as and the history of the castle. Most of the tour/museum is made up of empty rooms. Because of this I feel the entrance fee of 90 SEK is too high.
  • Beautiful view of the castle surrounding. Very peacefull and calm
  • Beatiful location
  • Easy to walk through and enjoy.
