Great Location for a Training Course I taught an IT training course here. We has the class in one of the huts in the gardens of this fine castle, but ate in the main house. There is a seperaate 'hotel' block. The accommodation was good - although we did not have daily room cleaning service. The food was fantastic. The views from the dining room was stunning, over Oresund. Breakfast, especially the scrambled eggs, was excelent. I loved the other meals too! Would love to return.

Beautiful place. Too bad the staff didnt know how to tend the bar (cause the one man who knew was asleep/off duty). Great gardens.

This hotel is worth visiting for its really beautiful surrounding. Hotel itself has very nice park with paths to take a walk. It also has mini golf course, nice outdoor swimming pool. Rooms are standard to spacy. For example, like elsewhere in Scandinavia, you will not find a shower tub in the bathroom, just a tiled floor. However, wonderful view from the park over the small harbour is breathing.

Sirmione Castle

Sirmione castle was built near the end of the 12th century as part of a defensive network surrounding Verona. The castle was maintained and extended first as part of the Veronese protection against their rivals in Milan and later under the control of the Venetian inland empire. The massive fortress is totally surrounded by water and has an inner porch which houses a Roman and Medieval lapidary. From the drawbridge, a staircase leads to the walkways above the walls, providing a marvellous view of the harbour that once sheltered the Scaliger fleet. The doors were fitted with a variety of locking systems, including a drawbridge for horses, carriages and pedestrians, a metal grate and, more recently, double hinged doors. Venice conquered Sirmione in 1405, immediately adopting provisions to render the fortress even more secure, fortifying its outer walls and widening the harbour.

Thanks to its strategical geographical location as a border outpost, Sirmione became a crucial defence and control garrison for the ruling nobles, retaining this function until the 16th century, when its role was taken up by Peschiera del Garda.
