Vaxholm

Vaxholm

Idyllic archipelago town with many well-preserved wooden houses from the turn of the last century, painted in the archipelago’s typical delicate pastel tones. Vaxholm has numerous charming restaurants, cafés and shops.

Waxholm Hotel, with its great views of the fortress and harbour, is a classic choice for lunch or dinner, or, why not a Christmas Buffet.

Vaxholm is easily accessible year round, by Waxholmsbolagets boat traffic or by bus. If you take the bus, the trip is covered by Stockholm's public transport service and thus also included in the Stockholm Card.

Bogesund castle and Parkvillan cafe

Only a few minutes drive from Vaxholm is the impressive 17th Century Bogesund Castle commanding an idyllic forested hilltop setting. There are weekend tours and the delightful Parkvillan cafe (Saturday/Sunday 12-4 during summer) - a hidden gem well worth the brief scenic detour!

Getting to Vaxholm by boat

Nowhere in all the tourist stuff is a map or guide to ferries. How do you get around on them; where do they go, what do they cost. Very poor guide (see above)
