I'm generally a fan of visiting ruins and Borgholm is no exception. It's large and you can take your time walking across the walls and exploring little chambers. It should only take you about two hours and definitely go on a day with nice weather!

If you go to borgholm or Oland you should not miss this castle. It has a nice story to it and you can wander along at your own pace. Nice views over sea and city.

We visited Borgholms Slott in 2010, and again in 2016. The castle ruin is now a museum on par with some of the best you will find. While before it was open to the public, now there are self-guided audio tours, lots to read, and...More
