Näsby Castle

Täby, Sweden

Näsby estate belonged to Uppsala archbishop in 1300s and in 1520s it was donated to Kristina Nilsdotter (Gyllenstierna). In 1571 it was acquired by Gustav Axelsson Baner. Originally built in the 1660s and designed by Nicodemus Tessin the Elder, the current Näsby Castle is located in the picturesque and natural setting of Näsbyviken. The castle was burned to the ground in 1897, but was rebuilt according to the original design on the initiative of Carl Robert Lamm and Dora Lamm who moved into the castle in 1905. Parts of the old castle garden still exist and are well preserved. Today Näsby is a conference center with a hotel and restaurant.

High standard with a distinct look and feel. Very solid food and a nice out doors wine bar.

I was at Näsby Castle for a two day conference with work. As soon as I stepped inside the door the staff greeted me and helped me with what I needed. The conference rooms were alright, but being an old building the ventilation was lacking and the air quality got a bit unbearable rather quickly. I ate two lunches, one dinner and one breakfast at the castle and the overall quality of the food was great. Unfortunately there were limited options, and a couple of people in my party that did not eat fish where left disappeared as they were served the fish dish, with the fish removed. The hotel rooms where small but very good quality and had everything you needed. The location is a bit odd, there is a lot of new houses being built in the area which makes the castle feel a bit out of place. There is a nice park behind the castle but unfortunately it was not well tended during my visit, bushes were a bit overgrown and the grass was long. But overall it was a good time!

After staying here a second time, we will not be coming back ever. Housekeeper enters your room long before checkout time without knocking, they serve you a different menu than what you've booked (Of course the cheapest options on their menu) and breakfast has very few options, most of them low quality. When we told the staff about our experiences, they were not interested in making it up to us at all. Extremely disappointed!

Clean and comfort rooms and very nice region to walk.

Beautiful castle, well worth a visit. Not that secluded, there are condos built so close that it’s hard to believe that they are not on the same property.

Odeon of Herodes Atticus

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus is a stone theatre structure located on the southwest slope of the Acropolis of Athens. It was built in 161 AD by the Athenian magnate Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla. It was originally a steep-sloped theater with a three-story stone front wall and a wooden roof made of expensive cedar of Lebanon timber. It was used as a venue for music concerts with a capacity of 5,000. It lasted intact until it was destroyed and left in ruins by the Heruli in 267 AD.

The audience stands and the orchestra (stage) were restored using Pentelic marble in the 1950s. Since then it has been the main venue of the Athens Festival, which runs from May through October each year, featuring a variety of acclaimed Greek as well as International performances.
