Gripsholm Castle Open today 10.00-16.00

Childrens Gripsholm

Dungeons, armouries, canons, a stuffed lion. Hundreds of portraits, following you with their eyes down the winding corridors... bring your children and grandchildren to experience the excitement of this Vasa castle.

Family tours

The Vasa castle Gripsholm can be discovered by yourself at your own pace, but taking a guided castle tour gives you so much more. Our family tours are aimed at children between the ages of 6-10, but are just as entertaining for the accompanying adults.
