Practical information

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.


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.
