Swedish ideas of castles and palaces are not what we expect in English. Gunnebo is a gorgeous country home with lovely gardens, house and a nice restaurant/cafe. If you are in the area and the weather is nice then this is well worth the trip.

Be aware that your normal Gothenburg transit card will NOT get you here. You need the Gothenburg+ card. Otherwise you will ride the tram all the way to Molndal, only to be told by the friendly driver on bus #753 that your card is not valid for that zone, and the only way to buy a ticket is at the...

We came on a winter's night and could not see the approach or the landscape clearly. However, once inside, it was warm and beautifully kept. The story of Gunnebo and the John Hall family was beautifully brought out by a young guide. Impressed at how painstakingly this palace was reconstructed (furniture, fittings) by the Govt and how well informed but... More

It may not be the largest Manor House in Sweden, but it's history is fascinating, the interiors special and the symmetry in it's architecture remarkable. We were guide around on a day when they offer the "haunted" version out the tour, and is nice to see how well this can still be done with good drama. No hi-tech built-in speaker... More

The gardens were pretty and well manicured. We went on the house tour but there was no English speaking tours which was a bit disappointing especially if you a paying 85 Kroners. An English booklet was given but it would not be the same. Nevertheless still worth it.

I Came manly for the gardens and not the inside of the slött so was impressed to see the kitchen garden in a well laid out manner. The Trägårdsmästre's Buffé. Was less impressive however. The offering was not as impressive as I envisaged and there was way to many people crammed into the little room were the buffé was located.... More

I visited Gunnebo last year after a big hike in the nature. It is a nice country house, wonderfully Nordic and simple. I was a bit disappointed after having lived in Germany for years and having seen many castles and palaces there. Compared to them Gunnebo is very small and simple, but at the same time it has its own... More

After taking your grandchildren to the Mölndal Museum, drive along to this beautiful country house. It's not likely that you will be permitted to visit the building. But a walk through the garden, and perhaps a snack the natural/ecological cottage would round out the day nicely.

Gunnebo is a lovely place to visit if you are into places with story. The garden you can find both relaxing and playfull. If you are fan of "the Shinning" movie you should definitly visit it in winter ;)
