Top 10 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Vaxholm, Sweden - Updated 2020

Vaxholm is known as the “doorway to Roslagen” and is a hub for travel to most of the islands in the Swedish archipelago. The 70 islands can be explored by travelling on foot. The islands are home to charming restaurants, shops and relaxing cafes which serve aromatic coffee. Once there, take the ferry that goes to the tiny island of Vaxholm, home to a significant 17th-century citadel also known as Vaxholm Castle (Vaxholms Kastell in Swedish). The Citadel plays a key role in military history, something that history buffs will be keen to explore.

Vaxholm is often referred to as the “port to the Stockholm archipelago” with 23 000 islands to explore. The name Vaxholm comes from Vaxholm Castle, which was constructed in 1549 on an islet with this name on the inlet to Stockholm, for defence purposes, by King Gustav Vasa. The town of Vaxholm was established in 1558 when King Gustav Vasa bought some farms from Count Per Brahe (the elder). The designated coat of arms reminds of the fortifications as well as the shipping industry. Interested in visiting Vaxholm? Here are the top 10 Airbnb vacation rentals for your selection.
