  • It is a beautifully built festning, its like a little island. We took a ferry to get there from the mainland.  more »
  • My wife and I took the short ferry ride to see the fortress at Voxholm during our day trip from Stockholm. It was a pleasant boat trip up the archipelago to Voxholm of about an hour. We viewed a child...  more »
  • At first glance from Vaxholm gives the impression that the Fort is a small crowded kastell. The little yellow ferry takes us over to the fortress. Once inside the Castle spreads a large courtyard with a well-organized museum with local focus and emphasis on the years 1719 Russian invasion and with knowledgeable guides and serving inside and out with homemade bread. Perhaps one of the best function rooms to rent if you want to be many and sing loudly.

  • A fascinating museum with lots of interesting artifcats and well put teogether exhibits. Many rooms have a kids feature. The exhibits are factual and well constructed with great use of dioramas and animated features.
  • It's not so impressive fort . It's just like the one in any other country . If you are bored n don't have anything to do in summer, it's good to visit for the view . Nice point for photographers. But really not worth coming all the way from stockholm central to visit this especially on winter time!!!
  • 16th century fortress now housing a museum.
  • Great view!
  • For 40 KR, one crossing and it is possible to free the fortress look at. The view from the tower is worth! Absolutely worth seeing. The Museum will cost extra. But they cope well without. Toilet very clean and also free.
