Travel Tips for Norrköping
I would take that person to...
I would take that person to the Tropikarium a couple of miles from Norrkoping.
There you can swim with sharkes, feed alligators, walk around among small monkeys and many other animals.
Near the Tropikarium you also can visit europes biggest
zoo-Kolmorden. I would miss my family and my friends ofcourse, but also my beutiful town who is very green and warm in the summer.
In the winter it's very cold but it's nice with all the snow, here we really have what you can call christmas!

The Castle was built by field marshal Axel Lillie when he returned from the 30 year's war in 1636. It partially burned down in 1750 and is restored and renovated.
It was the home of Axel von Fersen, Marie Antoinette's Swedish lover and Riksmarsalk of Sweden, who was killed by an angry mob convinced he poisoned the crown prince in 1810. His sister, who barely escaped herself, rose a monument in his honor in the park of the castle.
A castle whispering of rumours and memories, haunted through history by several ghosts including the one-eyed chaplain and the Lady Christina Mörner who every night checked if the gates were closed. All of them have faded though and only the grey lady remains, some say it is Axel von Fersen's miserable sister. Undeniable is the fact that every time she shows herself she heralds forthcoming deaths. The last time just a few years ago when she showed herself to one of the servants in the Castle a few days before the old steward died.
Holmens Bruk was founded in the beginning of the 17th century by Louis De Geer. The history of the company and the processes used in the making of paper is shown at the Holmen museum. The museum has a group of 25 veterans, all have worked in the Holmen Paper Factory in Norrköping.
Maybe we must do another visit
"Very quick visit"
We were here much later than we thought (we got stucked in Stockholm because of the marathon) and our hotel wasn´t as centre as we thought, so we saw quite a little this town itself.
Maybe we must visit it again one day.
