Outdoor guided tours

Skokloster is a unique place – as full of history as it is with stories. You can travel a thousand years here in just a few hundred metres. The guided tour is a journey from the monastery to the Castle – via nuns, striking construction workers, the dangerous lake Mälaren, and the hideous crossbow murder on the ice. In addition, we meet counts and countesses and learn about how the people in the 17th century regarded hygiene, death and love.
