With unique architecture and lovely interior the medieval castle is one of Sweden's best preserved castles from the 15th century. Torpa Stenhus is privately owned and has been in the same family's posession since the end of the 15th century! 

During centuries Torpa played an important roll in history when the Danes and Swedes had their battles. This is also where the famous Swedish king Gustav Vasa in the 16th century first met the 16 year old Miss Stenbock, who became his third and last wife! 

A guide will tell about the history and traditions at that time – in Swedish or English.

Torpa also has a very nice café & restaurant where we'll enjoy a tasty lunch.

Only a few minutes drive from Torpa Castle is The Hofsnäs Manor situated, in a scenic nature reserve - between two lakes. 

The first mention of Hofsnäs Manor is dated back to 1488!

On the estate one can find a very nice café & bistro, a beach and several paths where you can enjoy the fantastic area.

Hofsnäs Bistro serves homecooked food & fika,made of organic local produce. When the weather permits it is lovely on the terrace, with a great view over the park and lake Torpasjön. Maybe you'd like to have a so called fika here?

"Lilla Saluhallen", is a small marketplace in a former grain warehouse where they offer delicious locally produced food, delicacies and quality handicraft.

You can choose pickup in Borås instead of Göteborg if you prefer.
