Just returned from a trip to Häckeberga Castle in Sweden with my wife I just have to write that this is one of the best weekends in a long time. The castle is beautifully located on one of the 7 islands in the Häckebergalake.The castle nicely presents itself
What sets the experience apart from your normal swedish castle is these things:
- The nature surrounding the castle is simply astonishing. Almost no man made sound can be heard and it is very easy to take a tour into one of the forrests around the castle without hearing or meeting anybody but yourself and your spouse.
- The food served at the castle is of gourmet class. It is not your average continental steak or ala carte menu. You get a 4-dish gourmet menu with 2-3 appetizers in between. It is complemented with a 4 glass wine menu that enhances the experience believe it or not.
- The staff is professional yet very relaxed and friendly
- There is only room for very few guests due to the limited amount of rooms, so it never gets crowded (the downside being that you have to book months in advance
I had a splendid weekend there. Real quality time with my beautiful wife. Will not be the last time we visit that place!
