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.

“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. "
