About the accommodation

Experience Stockholm’s archipelago and stay at Vaxholms Kastell in a unique ambiance dating back to the 16th century. The castle is located on an island just a stone’s throw from Vaxholm, a perfect place to relax and take in the boats that slowly pass by.

Kastellet in Vaxholm is a unique site in the Stockholm archipelago. At the castle in Vaxholm you will be inspired by the unique history and beautiful archipelago surroundings. If you want to stay busy, there are lots of activities. Alternatively, you can enjoy the tranquility and watch the boats as they slowly pass by.
Our Bed & Breakfast is located in the northern part of the castle. Here we have carefully renovated and spacious rooms with high arched ceilings, wide wooden floors, stoves and skylights overlooking the sea. Feel the history, while enjoying the comforts of modern living. The room is available from 14:00 on the day of arrival until 11:00 on the day of departure.
We prepare your breakfast in the beautiful dining room, so that you are ready to discover everything the island and surroundings have to offer. The breakfast room can also be used to sit and socialize at other times, with books, newspapers and board games available. In summer we open the gates to our large outdoor terrace, and weather permitting you can sit outside and enjoy breakfast in a sheltered location, in a double sense.
Today, there are several different activities at Kastellet. In addition to our Bed & Breakfast, we have the archipelago’s largest museum, conference rooms, family activities, ECO-Shipping, and many artists’ exhibits and shops on the island. A bistro and café are open in summer.
My name is Lotta Blomqvist, and I have managed Kastellet Bed & Breakfast since 2008. My whole family is involved in the business in one way or another. Our B&B is in a unique location and is really accommodation beyond the ordinary. As a guest you will enjoy not only the accommodation, but also the historical and cultural experience.
A warm welcome to us at Kastellet Bed & Breakfast!
