  • Birgittaklostret was built up just a few years after "Moderklostret" in Vadstena. The monastery was burned by the Russians at the end of the 1500 century, but appeared in 170 years. At Christmas season, the city adorns the ruins with beautiful Christmas decorations!

  • Beautifully maintained terrain with very old crosses in the cemetery. All the freedom to look around at your leisure. Nice with children because there could be plenty of geklauterd by the ruins rooms and spaces. Near the sea to get a breath of fresh water.
