Rick Steves has suggested that Kalmar Castle in Sweden is the best castle in Scandanavia.
Problem is, it would take a full day out of our itinerary, even if 'stopping by' en route between Cope & Stock. We are mainly using Oslo, Cope & Stock as homebases, hoping to use quick cheap flights between them.
Can anyone make a suggestion as to the "2nd best castle in Scandanavia", focusing on Denmark, Sweden & Norway (not Finland), AND ideally close to one of the above cities?
I have received one suggestion so far --> "Gripsholm Castle in Mariefred* -- Any other suggestions out there?
Thanks so much in advance!
