Wenngarn Castle - Sweden's most accessible castle?

Wenngarn, which is located next to Garnsviken in Mälaren, is portrayed in early historical sources. Sweden's oldest kept letter from 1164 tells a story about the land area of Wenngarn, and the adjacent Sigtuna is Sweden's first capital founded around 970 A.D.

Wenngarn has, during a period of a 1000 years, constantly been changing from large estates to a community house, a venue where people gather for different events. A place for interesting encounters where everyone is welcome! 

Wenngarn Castle is open to everyone, every day of the week.
