1st Advent has arrived! Celebrate it with us by visiting The Gatehouse (Grindstugan) at Jonsered's Gardens. This weekend they offer decorations for Advent & Christmas, arts & crafts & traditional marsipan. They'll also treat us with Christmas drink & Swedish gingerbread! At the flowershop (Lilla Trädgårdsbutiken) you can find real nice flowers, plants and interior decorations and at the kafé we'll have a light lunch, followed by coffee and cake.
Then we'll be ready to take a 30 min ride in our minibus to Gunnebo House & Gardens (Gunnebo Slott & Trädgårdar) - the exquisite 18th century castle just outside Gothenburg. Time to indulge in their lovely Christmas Fair - the smells, tastes and beauty of Christmas!
You can join a guided tour of the fantastic castle - we'll book a ticket for you, (info below).
1st Advent - Sunday December 1, 2019.
Gunnebo House & Gardens is only a short drive from Gothenburg. Once there the atmosphere will be totally different - you will enter the 18th century!
The "castle" is truly exquisite, well maintained and has a fascinating history as it was once built as a summerhouse for the Hall family, one of Sweden's most wealthy families. Buildings, such as the orangery, have been rebuilt in truly old fashioned ways in accordance with the old sketches that have been found.
Apart from the Christmas Fair, you will find the shop selling Swedish handicraft and design, restaurant & café serving delicious organic food, kitchen gardens, orangeri, parks, playground and much more. Furthermore - the estate is beautifully situated next to two lakes.
Please note: You can join a guided tour of the fantastic palace - just inform us and we'll book a ticket for you. (See prices below!)
