Legendary Häckeberga Castle, which dates in part back to the 14th century, enjoys a spectacular setting on one of the seven islets in Lake Häckebergasjön in southern Sweden. The castle is surrounded on all sides by the beautiful lake and the nature reserve Ridge of Romele.
The castle was built in French Renaissance style by Tönnes Wrangel von Brehmer who took over Häckeberga in 1872. Over the next thirty years, Tönnes and his wife Olga Langen undertook a period of major renovations at Häckeberga.
The castle, today owned by the Tham family, was praised in the writings of world-famous Swedish botanist and traveller, Linnaeus. The present building, built in 1875, and its grounds offer a myriad of opportunities for enjoyment, cultural and outdoor such as golf, fishing, riding, boule, crocket and wine and whisky tasting
There are many beautiful works of art decorating Häckeberga Castle. The paintings are of international character, having been created by artists from all over Europe.
The onsite restaurant combines the finest cuisine with excellent service and a wonderful ambience. There is no permanent menu; the chefs decide what to cook depending on the season and supply of local ingredients.
None of the room looks alike, since the inventory is a mixture of both old and new.Distances:
Hotel rooms in Scandinavia are generally furnished with twin beds, which can be moved together to form a double bed or placed separately (some hotels have double beds though). Unless otherwise specified all rooms have private bathroom facilities, which are often equipped with a shower instead of a bath. Please note that single rooms are generally smaller than doubles. Purpose-built triple or family rooms are likewise unusual in Scandinavian hotels. Whilst it is possible for 3 persons to share a room, this will normally be formed by a double room with an extra bed. As a result space may be restricted.
Unless otherwise clearly specified a standard room/cabin is included in the tour price.
