Full description
Visit Sigtuna, the oldest surviving town in Sweden, full of cozy traditional wooden houses. Walk along the main street with your guide and see one of the smallest town halls in Sweden built before 1750. Explore the history of the town from the Viking age to the Middle Ages to today. Admire the oldest stone churches from the early medieval period from before 1100.

After exploring Sigtuna, visit Wenngarn Castle dating back to the 17th century. It is rumored to have the best preserved Baroque chapel in Europe.
