As the oldest castle in Scandinavia, Malmohus castle stands as a beautiful red brick fortress and adjoins the castle built in the 1530s. An important stronghold of Denmark, this castle-turned-prison tells the story of its captives. For five years the castle imprisoned Mary, Queen of Scots' third husband, James Hepburn, 4th Earl of Bothwell. Today the castle is home to a museum of ancient art, modern photography, taxidermy, and prison cells for touring. Limited signage is provided in English.

  • As there is not a lot to see inside, the Castle itself is not very impressive, but the garden that surrounds the castle is lovely. You can also find a restaurant and a souvenir shop inside.  more »
  • This is not the most impressive castle from the outside but interesting history and surrounded by a moat  more »

  • Super cheap entrance for all the information you get to learn. At some parts interesting ideas to interact the person with history og Sweden. The castle was much bigger to walk around then it seems like from the outside.
  • What a wonderful experience this Castle had to offer. From learning about the history of the castle over the centuries, the animal exhibits down in the basement and the history of how exercise got its start made for a fun historical adventure. I wish I would have known how much time it would take to go through this castle as we certainly would have shown up earlier in the day. It was so much fun I didn't want to leave!
