The 'castle' is actually a defended house but it is quite impressive as such. We got an organised tour (3pm in English) which showed up a lot of the features very well. One thing the guide missed, the high-quality tapestry shows the story of King...More

Went here and took the guided tour which was both informative and entertaining. Also liked the expo of the people who have lived in the castle. Had a nice lunch in the cafe.

The Glimmingehus is a nice location to visit for a short stop during a day trip in the Swedish countryside. We visited on a partially sunny day and had a ncup of coffee afterwards in the cafe in the courtyard.
