Lejondal Castle

Upplands-Bro, Sweden

Lejondals Slott is beautifully located on Lake Lejondals. It is one of Sweden’s youngest and was completed in 1892, and was erected by the Liberian Louise De Geer (1856-1935). The architect was Professor Isak Classon (1856-1930), who also designed the Hallwyl Palace and the Nordic Museum. The building style is predominantly Wasa style, although one can see the influences of other styles. Louise, born Sparre, adorned her castle very beautifully, and you will find the family arms of the two genera Sparre and De Geer. In 1914 Louise sold the castle, and since then it has had several owners.

The history of the property goes back to the early 1400s when it was owned by the English Queen Filippa, but was then called Bro-Lövsta. The name Lejondal came about in the 17th century under the ownership of Erik Abrahamsson Lion’s head, who changed the name of the property to his own last name.

Unfortunately, the only rooms left when booking were the economy rooms. The rooms were really small. In fact, if they were any smaller, there would be danger of fusion reaction, not comfortable for two adults. We booked the spa for 2 hours (450 sek). The spa was beautiful but had more to wish for. The lockers had no locks ?, and there were not enough lockers for everyone?. The spa consists of a 10x5(?) meter pool, big sauna (beautiful), relaxing room, and jacuzzi fitting 5 people comfortable. The dinner: Here is where they shine. The three courses were amazing, only improvement I'd like to see is a presentation of the food put in front of me and not only "here you go". Staff get a 4 of 5 Facilities 3 of 5 Food 5 of 5 Spa 3 of 5 Breakfast average (beautiful view, though) Overall, it's okay We spent around 2000 SEK per person for one night.

We had an amazing stay here, we were greeted so kindly by all of the workers when we arrived. They had coffee and a great living area to sit in and relax. We had an amazing dinner with an amazing service staff and food. After dinner a man named Jimmy answered all of our questions and showed us around the castle which was truly amazing. The rooms are comfortable and have great views of the woods and lake. I would recommend this to anyone visiting this area. A 10/10 stay in my book!! Thank you to all the staff!

Kakesbeck Castle

Kakesbeck is one of the largest medieval fortifications in Münsterland and the oldest castle in Lüdinghausen. The imposingly grown complex originated in 1120 as a motte, a small hilltop tower castle. After numerous changes of ownership, the castle was extended onto two islands, but it was not until the 14th century that it underwent significant alterations and extensions under the von Oer family. The estate experienced its heyday in the middle of the 18th century, when it covered an area of almost one square kilometre and consisted of five further outer castles in addition to the core castle, which were secured by ramparts and moats.

The well-maintained condition of the castle today is thanks to the late Wilfried Grewing, the former lord of the castle. The foundation named after him has been particularly committed to preserving the property since 2020.
