Todays excursion took us to Gunnebo castle, it’s just 15 minutes drive from central Gothenburg. This castle from the 18th century is surrounded by a park and a beautiful forest. It’s possible to go inside the castle, guided tours are available. At our visit, they were restoring the facade of the castle so half of the building was covered in working platforms. Luckily, it’s only the main building undergoing a face lift, the rest of the old buildings were untouched and very enjoyable to watch.
They also have big gardens where they grow their own crops and vegetables, which are served in the cafeteria. All is organic too. There is also a small shop at the premesis where you can buy locally produced food and some hand crafted stuff. After having walked around for an hour or so we decided to have something to eat in the cafeteria. Very delicious food for sure.
The castle have an interesting history and small signs here and there tells parts of it, I guess you will get an even better introduction if you take the guided tour. We declined due to having the stroller with us and the castle inside has some stairs. On the outside, there are both stairs and walkways so it’s easy to get around, even with a stroller or wheelchair.
