Even Google told me, it isn't open, it was. I was a little surprised, that the castle wasn't full of furniture in every room. I guess it depends on, that there are no original furniture left. Anyway they made a nice exhibition. Only the second floor is museum. On the first floor is a café (which will open 14th June = 2022) and on the third floor is a kind of school, where everyone for free can try different technics of handkrafts and the like. This was not running as well.

Not as beautiful scenery as the other castles around Södermanland but worth a trip.

Duino Castle

Duino Castle was built by the Wallsee family in 1389 on the cliffs overlooking the Gulf of Trieste. It replaced an older castle from the 11th century. Over time, the Wallsee family disappeared and the castle, after having been used as a prison, became the residence of the Luogar and Hofer.

At the end of the 19th century it became the property of Prince Alexander von Thurn und Taxis from the Czech branch of the House of Thurn and Taxis. It remains with the family to this day with his great-grandson Prince Carlo Alessandro della Torre e Tasso, Duke of Castel Duino the current owner. The castle has been opened to the public as a museum and park.
