Lovely little chateau, you could actually get in this one as well. There are several chateau in the area but they do not have websites like Britain and can be quite difficult to find the entrance as they are on private land and sat navs take you down dodgy routes. Very quiet area and not at all busy, very reasonable entrance fee ( only cost us €20). Children between 5 and 12 are usually free.

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.
