My boyfriend and I always plan for an unusual things to do everyday and visiting old castle is always on top of our list 😊. Since we visited Gräfsnäs Castle and Läcksö Castle already we come up to look for another one and that is Tjolöholm Castle in Halland,Sweden.
The Castle is open to the public throughout the years and you can check on their site for some calendar activities and some exceptional dates when they are close HERE IS THEIR SITE 👈
We went there yesterday because of their traditional large Christmas Market called Julmarknad på Tjolöholm and this year is their 26th year. For a days, small shops and food seller from different part of Sweden visit there to sell their food delicacies and unique works. They also offer some free taste of their products which I really really like 😂 meats, cheeses, jellies, candies, nuts and julmust and many more.
During the night you can see the castle shines with lot of Christmas lights(see picture below).
The second castle we visit is Gräfsnäs Castle. This castle is very old. Originally built in the 16th century and according to an old tale/legend, this castle is cursed by a woman that was badly treated by the landowner. She cursed the castle that no family would own it for more than three generations, and cursed was laid upon it that it would burn three times with 100 years between each fire and so it did happened 1634, 1734 and 1834. They say after the fire in 1834 no-one bothered to rebuild it again and it has been a ruin ever since.
