Guided tours and package for groups
Special guided tours
We can offer special guided tours on a particular theme or tours to view a particular category of artefacts, such as textiles, books, weapons and armour, tools or furniture. Would you like to hear about the strange fates of the Wrangel, von Haugwitz, Brahe or Königsmarck families or have a special tour on the theme of the castle’s animals? Please contact us if you have any questions or special requests or ideas for a visit to the castle and we can plan it with you!
Guided tours in other languages
Guided tours are available in Swedish and English. Guided tours in other languages can be arranged by special agreement. If you would like a tour in another language, it is also possible for someone in your group to interpret from Swedish or English during the tour.

Remember to arrive in good time if you want to visit the castle. To make sure you get to see all areas of the castle, we start at the time you have booked. The guide will meet you about ten minutes before the booked tour.
Remember that the castle does not have lighting or heating. In the winter it is dark and cold. We recommend that you dress warmly.
There is a ramp at the ground floor entrance giving access to the shop, exhibition and café. There are no ramps or lifts in other parts of the castle. There are many staircases, and during the tour we will visit all four floors of the castle.
If you have special needs and cannot get around the museum, we offer a visit to the exhibition Dreams of Skokloster on the castle’s ground floor. The exhibition displays the castle’s best-known artefacts from four centuries.
If you have difficulty standing throughout the tour, you can borrow a folding chair at the entrance. It is possible to bring a wheeled walker or other mobility aid into the castle, but you must be able to carry your mobility aids yourself.

Companions are welcome to visit the castle free of charge. Guide dogs are also welcome.
