We present an ultrafast vector microscope with 10 nm spatial and subfemtosecond temporal resolution which is capable of mapping all three vector components of the electric field as well as the magnetic field of light on nanophotonic structures.

As first application, we record and analyze the temporal evolution of plasmonic skyrmions and the skyrmion number on a nanostructured gold surface.
