The old traditional cache CASTLEHILL by Jasy is dead but has emerged again as an easy WherIgo cache that takes less than an hour.

CASTLEHILL (Slottsberget)
Lindholmen castle is an old historic place and were presented to Queen Blanka of Namur by King Magnus Eriksson as a morninggift (not bad!) when they married 1335.
You can read all about it here in swedishclick here Maybe you Remember her from the films about Arn?
There are no documentation of the castle design as it was burnt by the Danes early.
Most of the houses here were made by shipyard workers in about 1870.and they of cause used the remains of the castle as foundation for there houses so I guess nothing is visable today. If you look at the old drawing from 1864 maybe you can imagine and see some walls . The castle were probably surrownded with water as it is named Lindholmen ( holme is a small island in swedish)
Take a stroll in this picturesque area and collect information for the final cache

Happy hunting.
