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 (6 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

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.
