Koberg Castle

Trollhättan, Sweden

The first known owner of Koberg was knight Erik Nipertz in the 15th century. Later it has been owned for example by royal Vasa and Leijonhufvud (Lewenhaupt) families. The oldest eastern part of the castle dates from the mid-1400s, the middle part from 1620s and the western part from the late 1700s. The other estate buildings were built in Neo-Romantic style in 1900-1904. Today Koberg castle is the residence of Princess Désirée, Baroness Silfverschiöld and her husband Baron Nicklas Silfverschiöld.

Beautiful!

Really enjoyed the Christmas market
Fredrika Germundsson (7 years ago)
The castle is wonderful and worth a visit during the days that it is open. I was there during the Christmas market, together with a lot of people. On the negatives is that it is private property so you will not be able to enter the main building, and visiting days are restricted for the public.

Crowded, small, not friendly for strollers. Not worth the entrance fee

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
