On location at Visingsö

Today is one of these days when summer in Sweden is the best, 25 + degrees Celsius, the sun is shining and there is practically no wind.

Visingsö is an island in Lake Vättern. I arrived by ferry about two hours ago and have so far visited the castle ruin Näs at the south end south of the island. Näs castle is the oldest castle that can be connected to a Swedish king and was build during the 12th century.

For today I get to travel in style, in a BMW Z3. A cab is just lovely in this weather and when you know that the roads are OK, which is not always the case when it comes to visiting ancient monuments. Here it’s parked just south of the southern grave field, with a large mound in the background.

A more detailed post will follow later on.
