The first known owner of Koberg was knight Erik Nipertz in the 15th century. Later it has been owned for example by royal Vasa and Leijonhufvud (Lewenhaupt) families. The oldest eastern part of the castle dates from the mid-1400s, the middle part from 1620s and the western part from the late 1700s. The other estate buildings were built in Neo-Romantic style in 1900-1904. Today Koberg castle is the residence of Princess Désirée, Baroness Silfverschiöld and her husband Baron Nicklas Silfverschiöld.

Beautiful!

Really enjoyed the Christmas market

The castle is wonderful and worth a visit during the days that it is open. I was there during the Christmas market, together with a lot of people. On the negatives is that it is private property so you will not be able to enter the main building, and visiting days are restricted for the public.

Crowded, small, not friendly for strollers. Not worth the entrance fee

Frösö Runestone

Frösöstenen is the northern-most raised runestone in the world and Jämtland's only runestone. It originally stood at the tip of ferry terminal on the sound between the island of Frösön and Östersund. The stone dates to between 1030 and 1050. It has now been relocated to the lawn in front of the local county seat due to the construction of a new bridge, between 1969 and 1971, on the original site.

Frösö runestone inscription means: Austmaðr, Guðfastr's son, had this stone raised and this bridge built and Christianized Jämtland. Ásbjörn built the bridge. Trjónn and Steinn carved these runes.
