"All the owners have had more or less greatness, almost unlimited resources, huge expenses and a penchant for decadence, scandals, glamor and party." This is how Häringe Castle describes its history itself. You understand that it will be a bike ride and castle experience with hints of luxury and lots of atmosphere. The castle's main building was built in 1657, the restaurant consists of five dining rooms and draws inspiration from the south of France. The staff is knowledgeable in both history, food and drink. What more can you ask for a cycling weekend?

It will be a nice bike ride through southern Stockholm and Södertörn. Long enough for you to be craving a three course dinner in the grand palace dining room. Here once housed the financier Torsten Kreuger (brother of Ivar) who had built Sweden's first outdoor pool of Olympic dimensions. The next financier in turn was Axel Wenner-Gren who founded Electrolux. If you go far back in time you can see that Gustav Vasa also made his mark on Häringe. You spend the night in one of the castle's wings, which are located around the castle building.

“We love dogs and always bring our four-legged friends when we travel. Dogs may be almost everywhere at the Castle and in most dining rooms, but don't forget to mention that you have a dog when you book accommodation or a restaurant visit. "

Day 1:

Stockholm - Häringe

You start the cycle tour in central Stockholm and cycle with the help of the travel description at your own pace south. It will be a little sightseeing through the southeast part of Greater Stockholm and Södertörn. Once in front, you check into your elegant room, take a shower and prepare yourself for a well-deserved dinner in the restaurant with the south of France as a source of inspiration.

Take a look at the pool (Sweden's first with Olympic measures) or a little walk in the beautiful surroundings. The outdoor pool below the castle is the perfect hangout on summer days. Read your favorite magazines, order a glass of bubble in the terrace bar and enjoy a sun-drenched lunch. Bathing dogs can swim in the sea down at the castle's jetty.

The service level was far from what we expected from a place like Häringe Castle. The location is fantastic, but unfortunately the service is just too low level. The staff does not have the service feeling needed to provide a truly delightful experience. Another example of low service was the need to pay extra in order to make a change to a meal. In addition, the food did not hold the worst quality either, not comparable to a normal restaurant in Stockholm. In the morning when we woke up, there was no running water at all. Called the front desk to report and then got a reply that "this is what is happening in the country ... there is no water at all in the castle. We do not know when it will be back". We were surprised that the staff did not take the initiative to give us any kind of compensation. Unfortunately, we will not visit Häringe Castle again and we cannot recommend anyone to go there.

Dark room and poor lighting by the bed. Nice pool area, good beds and very generous breakfast. Will be happy to visit you again with the whole family.

The bike ride good. Not the same to say about the restaurant, did not serve food according to menu.

We had a very nice weekend, thank you very much for your help. :-) If I have to comment on something, it is the choice of bike path, a bit boring as most of the routes went along major roads or on major roads (though on bike lanes). Would have liked more small roads in a more natural environment since we had brought both coffee and picnic lunch. I would like to recommend my cycling friends to contact you when it is their turn to book our next cycling weekend.

We were very satisfied overall. Would have preferred to stay Sat-Sun instead of Fri-Sat because it became tight to catch up after work. The food was very good, as was the breakfast! Nice to be able to check out at 12 and start the day in peace and quiet.
