It came to the von Fersen family through Hedvig Catharina De la Gardie and to the Piper Family through Sophie Piper, who was the sister of count Axel von Fersen.

  • Took part in a guided tour of the Castle ended with a dinner in the main building's kitchen area where employees formerly cooked and took their meals. Knowledgeable and friendly guide who shared the castle's history. Powerful environment to live in, almost a little spiritual when time stood still in the main building since the last owner died in 1926. The visiting group was composed of 19 people and there were a total of 20 seats for this event. Was a very nice evening with great food! Green pea soup as a starter and perfectly cooked veal chop to the main course. We had missed that dessert would be ordered at the same time as the booking but they could fix an alternative dessert consisting of berries and ice cream. Divinely good!

  • Perfect little excursions if you go past on the E4. Unusually, it is an awful lot of furniture and objects in this museum acts last owner decided to donate everything.
