Dating back to the 14th Century, this castle has been a part of most of Örebro's history. The watch-tower was the first part to be constructed, and gradually the other wings of the castle were added. Standing proudly on the banks of the Svartån, the castle now serves as governor's residence for Örebro county. Apart from having historical and political significance, it is a great attraction for travelers and tourists, since it is also a venue for exhibitions and art shows. The castle also has a restaurant and cafe providing refreshments to visitors. Call the tourist information office for more details.
