Teleborg Castle

Växjö, Sweden

Despite its middle-age style, the The Castle of Teleborg was built in 1900 by architect firm Lindvall & Boklund. The castle was built as a wedding present from count Fredrik Bonde af Björnö to his wife Anna Koskull. 17 years later the couple had died, and the castle was used as a hotel for young girls and for accommodation in general. In 1964 the city of Växjö bought it and the surrounding park from the Bonde family and is today mainly used for representation, weddings and conferences. Today, the castle is used by the city council for representational purposes, and the nearby university also uses some parts of the castle.

one of the most amazing places i have visited at night, try to reach there at night and look at the beauty. Take a walk in the garden around and listen to the birds. There is a lot of benches to sit there with the family.

I gave the place only three stars not because is not beautiful but most because you have no chance to visit it ! The swedish used the reception off the entrance for a restaurant with expectations for one " Fancy" but...... it's a long way upp to the top !

Super friendly Staff Although Covid Pandemic!! They always smiled to me. Very Delicious breakfast. The menu is no different from other hotels, but it was excellent in quality. The antique atmosphere of the castle, the traces of time, were all good. The lake, the trees, the park. Everything was good. This hotel is unforgettable!!

Beautiful little castle in what feels like the middle of the city. Suddenly you are in the typical Swedish countryside with woods and lakes. Great for taking a walk and getting some food at either the castle or the lakeside pub. Will definitely have to go again and stay for lunch. Food options seem reasonable priced.

Wonderful! Don't think there is another castle as beautiful as this in Sweden where you can stay over night. We stayed in the room in the tower and it was just wonderful. There is no bathroom in the rooms but we was well informed of this before booking. I believe that having bathrooms in evere singel room in the castle would ruin the style and feeling of living in a castle.

La Hougue Bie

La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. Hougue is a Jèrriais/Norman language word meaning a \'mound\' and comes from the Old Norse word haugr. The site consists of 18.6m long passage chamber covered by a 12.2m high mound. The site was first excavated in 1925 by the Société Jersiaise. Fragments of twenty vase supports were found along with the scattered remains of at least eight individuals. Gravegoods, mostly pottery, were also present. At some time in the past, the site had evidently been entered and ransacked.

In Western Europe, it is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves and the most impressive and best preserved monument of Armorican Passage Grave group. Although they are termed \'passage graves\', they were ceremonial sites, whose function was more similar to churches or cathedrals, where burials were incidental.
