Klågerup Castle

Klågerup, Sweden

The history of Klågerup estate dates from the early 15th century, when it was owned by Peter Spoldener and his son. In the 18th century buildings were in bad shape and in 1737 Fredrik Trolle started an extensive restoration. The present main building got its appearance in 1858, when it was rebuilt to the French Renaissance style by architect Helgo Zettervall. Klågerup was a center of local peasant riots in 1811. The rebellion was defeated however in few days. Today there is a small doll museum in the wing of Klågerup castle. It is open by appointment only.

Peasants revolt. They don't riot. Typical bourgeois jargon. I finally saw the excellent musical 1811 by Rolf Hellmark and Lars Johansson and left flowers at the monument in June of 2011. We will always remember MÃ¥rten Bengtsson who made the supreme sacrifice.

My family and I went on the tour of the castle today, and we all loved it! The only reason I’m deducting a star is because the tour is only available in Swedish, which meant we had to translate for my cousin and his girlfriend. The tour guide was super nice though, and she did a great job. The castle is stunning and definitely worth visiting and as is the park, so definitely go for a walk too, if you have the time.

Nice garden but the castle were closed. To bad that I couldn’t experience the castle from the inside. Also the forest next to the castle is good for long hiking…

Nice garden around the castle to spend on a sunny day. Lot of seatings in the garden. Bunch of cafe shops on opposite side of castle. Lot of parking slots opposite to castle and further.

Great place for a family outdoor trip! The castle is nice and has lovely gardens with fountains and paths to walk. In addition, around you can find animals enclosures, a children playground, picknick area, bunch of cafes and many more paths to walk and explore.

Trencín Castle

Trenčín Castle is relatively large renovated castle, towering on a steep limestone cliff directly above the city of Trenčín. It is a dominant feature not only of Trenčín, but also of the entire Považie region. The castle is a national monument.

History of the castle cliff dates back to the Roman Empire, what is proved by the inscription on the castle cliff proclaiming the victory of Roman legion against Germans in the year 179.

Today’s castle was probably built on the hill-fort. The first proven building on the hill was the Great Moravian rotunda from the 9th century and later there was a stone residential tower, which served to protect the Kingdom of Hungary and the western border. In the late 13th century the castle became a property of Palatine Matúš Csák, who became Mr. of Váh and Tatras.

Matúš Csák of Trenčín built a tower, still known as Matthew’s, which is a dominant determinant of the whole building.
