Uppsala Castle | Museum & History


Vasaborgen is a summer open museum in the 16th century ruins of the original Uppsala Castle that Gustav Vasa (also known as Gustav I) constructed in 1549. Among the ruins, you will learn about the Vasa kings and their fascinating fate. Gruesome acts were committed here, including the horrible Sture Murders of 1567.

During June, July and August, Vasaborgen is open almost every day from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Some days Vasaborgen closes earlier due to a wedding or other event. See website for the exact dates. In addition to public tours, Vasaborgen offers pre-booked tours for groups, companies and organizations as well as weddings in a historic environment. Pre-booked tours can also be given during winter. Vasaborgen is a ruin and unfortunately not adapted for people with reduced mobility. Visiting the entrance and the ground floor is fine.

By the entrance there is  also a store where you can buy souvenirs from Uppsala, Uppland and Sweden.
