The 12-16th century castle ruins at Gräfsnäs is definately one of the major sights of Alingsås. You can get there by the railway mentioned above. There are a few vaulted halls still intact and you can walk around here after seeing an exhibition on the castle history, but you might also end up in the middle of a wedding as this romantic place is popular place for tying the knot. If you come by your own transport, there is also time for you to stroll in the park and maybe have a meal or an ice cream and let your children play. On Sundays you can also look at the nearby 18th century soldier's croft, smithy and mill. Gräfsnäs also hosts various concerts and other events in summer.
From May to September, steam engines and other preserved trains take you the 12 kilometres along Lake Anten to Gräfsnäs Castle ruins. You can stop here and there and have a coffee or just enjoy the scenery and you can also lend a hand when turning the engine to go back if you find trains interesting.
