Each time I go there I discover something new, a different tree, another type of plant. The castle is very interesting to visit and well maintained with a very descriptive permanent exhibit of the history of the place. Do not miss the festivals of flowers. Take time to visit the park, it is one of a kind and deserves all your attention.

The Domain Trevarez is well worth a visit particularly until the 6th Jan for the light shows. This year is something totally different. Not particularly christmassy but amazing for children of all ages.,Do go.

An interesting modern, turn of the 20c built chateau. Beautiful walking on mature woodland paths and gardens.The house is undergoing a major renovation but there are areas to visit. Frequent events and exhibitions take place throughout the year when café facilities are available in the old stables. Recommended.

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.
