Very nice castle with a calm park around it! A hidden gem worth the bicycle ride.

Drive to the place, surroundings are pretty, but nothing much to explore once you reach there, but looks like a postcard

I took the hike from the town to the castle following the blue dot. Such a nice walk, apart of the mosquitoes attacks. When I was there was not possible to visit the castle, but I took a detour at the coffee place near it- love place with delicious cakes. Not to mention the cozy atmosphere and the cute decorations

Bogesund Castle is a former manor in municipality of Vaxholm and it is close to Vaxholms golf club. It is located in the center of the Bogesundslandet nature reserve. The castle was built in the 1640s and rebuilt in 19th century. It is an interesting place to visit.

The building itself is nice, but looks like abandoned from outside, they could take a bit better care of it. The nature around is beautiful, but there is better around Stockholm.

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
