“Medieval caste”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

This is a historic site well worth a visit, just beware the very steep steps. It's also quite dark inside, but I think that just adds magic to the experience.
The architecture is really cool, but they could have made more of the attraction. If you're not able to imagine the people living there and how it might have been a long time ago, then you might find it a bit boring.
There is a cafe in front of the castle with seating outside as well as inside.

“Living history in Österlen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

If our visitors stay more than a few hours, we take them to Glimmingehus. This is one of the few "castles" in Skåne that one can actually go in. There are tours and information in English and often special events. There is also a restaurant. The castle itself requires climbing rather steep stairs but the view at the top is great!
