The Castle 'Uppsala Slott'

This Castle was built in the 1540s, at the demand of this famous king called Gustav Vasa, and then restaured after the fire in 1702. Inside it are among other things the University's Art Exibitions and this is where Uppsala Town:s Mayor lives.

The Castle is one of the buildings dominating the silhouette of Uppsala, and the castle is best viewed from the pond of Svandammen. But don't miss standing on the castleyard facing the other way, having a look at Uppsala's botanical garden!

In the cellars beneath the Castle there is an exibition called Vasavinjetterna. This is a wax cabinet with scenes from the past, but also some present scenes. Not Mme Tussauds, but maybe worth a visit still...

Up at the third floor of the castle is the Rikssalen hall where formal banquets are held. I once visited the guys who clean the windows up there ... a scary experience indeed.

Address: Slottet, 752 37 Uppsala
Directions: Uppsala Castle, on top of the hill..can't miss that either.
