I had their buffet and I really loved the food. The cod in white wine sauce is absolutely brilliant. Spoke to the young chef and I had to tell him that I have seldom had so good fish and I don't really enjoy fish normally.

It is a beautiful place especially in springtime. To fully appreciate it book a tour and learn about its exciting history. While you are there you should visit the "Biblioteksruinen" not far away from the castle. It is a magical place!!

This castle situated beautifully outside Hassleholm are not the typical European castle. So compared with those castles this is a grade three to me, but for being Hassleholm it would be a grade four and almost a must in when in Hassleholm. The main tower...More
