Gräfsnäs Castle Ruins – Sollebrunn,Sweden

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.

There are few vaulted halls are still intact and you can walk around and see the other part of its castle. Some part is still close for renovations.

You can walk around, stop for a coffee and fika or just enjoy the scenery.

I love the way how the castle looks like 🙂 the green grass and the cold weather added the warm feeling. Visiting this 12-16th century castle ruins is definitely one of the major sights of Alingsås and it feels great to see it on my own eyes. Blessed to have an opportunity to explore and know about this castle and o once in a lifetime experience.

Having dinner at Lindelöv Slottcafe and they served great food and have a very accommodating staff 😊
