Vadstena | Adding to our collection of ‘Castles across Europe’
For hundreds of years, if you wanted to control territory in Europe, a castle was your best friend. So there’s plenty out there to explore just like Vadstena in Sweden. But visiting a castle can be a fascinating stop on any European roadtrip as you discuss “if these walls could talk” or try to stand where kings and queens stood. It’s a history lover’s dream and a real Ed-Venture waiting to happen.. so why not find out more about our experiences at Vadstena here.
Every castle should have Something special
Thankfully it is well signposted, enjoys a superb guide book as part of the entrance fee and has small information boards (in English) throughout the major rooms… its rich history also includes spells as a linen mill (mid 18th century) and as a grain store and garrison
Ideal town to explore with kids
so where did we park the bus for the night?
Just head for the local marina beside the castle gates (there is motorhome parking near the tourism office if you need further directions)
