The hunt for the dragon gold

27 March – 23 June 2024

Welcome to an exciting family activity at Borgholm Castle!

Old myths tell the tales of dragons that inhabited Öland in ancient times. They stashed away their secret dragon gold in the ground, in and around the castle.

Through the ages, many have come here to search for the gold, both within and outside the castle walls. But the treasures have remained hidden and were forgotten in the course of time.

Until now. The time has come again to start the hunt for the dragon gold here at the castle. Become a part of history and accept the challenge!
