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.
Come on a fashion safari with Leo the Lion at Gripsholm Castle. See famous historical Swedes in their most stylish outfits. Collect a map from the front desk, and turn a tour of the palace into a voyage of discovery for children. The details on the map can be found in the portrait collection, and it's up to you to find them!
Carry out the task by yourself during ordinary opening hours. The activity is suitable for children of all ages. All children who complete the task will receive a reward at the ticket office.
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.
