Skokloster castle is one of many castles in Stockholm, that are open to visitors all year round. During the fall season, the castle arranges activities for children, including fire shows, book readings, and walks in the dark. Skokloster slott is built in baroque style between 1654 and 1676. It’s located on a peninsula about 7 Swedish miles from Stockholm by car, or with commuter train to Bålsta and a short additional bus ride towards the castle. It’s just in the outskirts of Stockholm, near Sigtuna and Arlanda, making it a good day trip upon arriving to the city.
