The Vasa ChallengeAddress: Kungsgatan 1, 39233 Kalmar Show map
Address: Kungsgatan 1, 39233 Kalmar
This summer, the children will have the castle island as their playground, with quests throughout the entire castle grounds! An immersive experience focused on the life of Gustav Vasa – with a chance to meet the King himself!
In the outer courtyard, visitors will be met by either Gustav Vasa himself, Princess Cecilia Vasa or the mischievous jester. Throughout the courtyard are historical areas for play, based on nine events from the life of Gustav Vasa. Here, our young visitors can try to hit the mark with letters, walk on stilts from Sälen to Mora, and try to reach the “shore” without touching the ground. In addition, there are tricky tasks which they can either solve themselves, or work out with a little help from a parent. Two characters will be in place each day, to help out.
The tasks will be of varying difficulty, to suit both the younger and older children. Perhaps a little help from a parent will be needed at times – the whole family is invited to play!
All stations are located outdoors, and placed well apart in the castle grounds. The stations are independent and can be visited in any order, to facilitate distancing and to prevent queuing and crowding.
