On a cheap mini break or weekend break in Sweden you can also experience another popular destination, Mariefred on Lake Mälaren. Here you can stroll through the old town, see the historic pier and visit Gripsholm Castle. Gripsholm Castle was built around 1370 by Bo Johansson Grip. After many alterations and additions, the castle took on its current appearance and became a castle under King Gustav Vasa in the 1500s. At the castle you can wander through the royal halls and even see Sweden's national portrait collection. You can also take a walk in the park and meet deer along the way. The House of Prints, the only museum devoted exclusively to prints in Sweden, is located in Gripsholm Kungsladugård. On a self-drive holiday, it's easy to get around and experience a lot. So try a car holiday and take the whole family on a great summer holiday.
