“Lovely place for a castle”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

Lovely old castle situated on Sweden's biggest inland lake. English tours are available, but only at certain times. There are a few stairs to get to the different levels. Most of the furniture has been removed and in its place are art exhibitions. There was a sculpture and photographic exhibition on display when I visited. Also when I visited, there were opera performances held at a certain time in the courtyard (I believe this was especially for summer vacation). A well maintained herb garden is there too. If you have your own car, visit Spiken (about 3kms away) a pretty little place where boats are moored on the lake. There you can have a nice lunch and browse a small selection of art and craft shops.

Wonderful place to visit. Tour guides knowledgeable and friendly. Really provides an opportunity to see how the nobility in Sweden lived. Great place to take pictures. Would love to go back.

“A landmark from a fairy tale”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

Läckö Slott is well worth the visit for the castle, for the extraordinary gardens, and for the beautiful location. The English-language tour was very well done and took visitors to parts of the castle that are not routinely open to visitors.
The grounds, the site with the waters of Lake Vanern on three sides, the little beach are definitely a world away fem urban rich and toil.
The gardens, which supply vegetables to the restaurant and to the nearby hotel, are thrilling for anyone interested in horticulture.

“A Splendid experience”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

Our family of 4, kids age 9 and 10, had a great time visiting this nice castle. The guided tour was brilliant, maybe a little too short. The kids loved the children's programme that they attended and also the history about the owners.
