Borgholm is, despite its small population, for historical reasons still referred to as a city.

This ruined fortress, i.e. Borgholm Slott, is a colossal stone fortification with rows of huge arches and corridors open to the skies that can be reached either through a nature reserve or from the first exit south off Route 136. The best of the hotels in the town center include Villa Sol, a charming and quaint old pale-yellow house set in a fruit tree-filled garden.

Hemma Hos is one of the city’s best restaurants, serving pizzas and an assortment of meat dishes. On the northern side of the harbor, Skeppet is a jolly little Italian restaurant, hidden behind a group of silos. For the finest food on the island, head for Bakfickan at the Hotell Borgholm, whose chef, Karin Fransson, is something of a celebrity in Sweden.
