The renaissance castle of Vadstena
This is our classic tour of the castle. A guide dressed in historic garments representing one of the royalities from the Vasa-family takes you along for a historic tour in the castle. The royalty guides you through the royal suites, the festive hall and the church, how people lived in the castle and tells stories from their own lives. The tour lasts approximately 1 hour.
This tour is only available in english during the summer, but if you want to experience the castle as a group, you can make a pre-booked tour. Email us at email@example.com
