Fredriksborg means a lot - Sweden's strongest fortress in 1735, a historic and beautiful place with a magnificent view of Värmdö at Oxdjupet. Nowadays also a small personal rustic hotel, piously renovated and listed as a national building monument.
Fredriksborg Hotel was created in 2013-2015 in the two officers' residences from the 18th century. The hotel has 15 personal double rooms in different categories with new bathrooms, flat-screen TV and WiFi etc. New under the surface but with preserved period style.
Fredriksborg Fortress with the Oxdjup Tower up on the plateau and the Strandverket by the strait was built in 1724-1735 to protect Stockholm after the fall of the great power. It became the strongest fortress of its time and protected Oxdjupspassagen for over 100 years.
For a weekend, party, wedding or conference, Fredriksborg is the perfect place, with large areas and several buildings on almost 5 hectares of land. The whole of Fredriksborg can be subscribed, alternatively a desired part such as the orangery, the wedding tent, or the jetty. The fortress can also be rented for e.g. event, exhibition, party and wedding.
For companies and private groups, the hotel is open all year round by reservation; for example conferences, events, weddings, dinners etc.
For private guests, the hotel is open daily June-August and the Christmas dinner period. Other times generally weekends. See "opening hours" above.
Historical guided tours for guests are offered every day in the period May-September in the Fortress. The rest of the time it is a home for hibernating bats and we do not have access then. The fortress is not accessible from the inside on its own. Separate guidance can be ordered.
