Castles and steam

From the jetty you can board the Steamer Mariefred, which will take you on the ‘Cake tour’ to the famous cake table at Taxinge Castle, which always offers at least 60 different kinds of cakes. There is time to take a dip from the shallow beach before returning on the steam train on the narrow-gauge railway.
