We will meet in the centre of Gothenburg and travel to Tjolöholm Castle which was built between 1898 and 1904 and is said to be one of Sweden’s most amazing buildings.
You can choose between a tour with focus on the 1920's exhibition or a classic tour with focus on the history and interior of the castle.
During the 1920s the silent movie and Hollywood movie stars enchanted their audience, the radio got its breakthrough, cars and traveling became more popular. Clothing from the 1920s reflects major social changes. Women dress less restrictive with looser clothing and shorter hemline. Men and women start to wear athletic clothing which became a part of mainstream fashion for the first time.
The costumes included in this years’s exhibition come from one of Europe’s foremost private vintage collections.
The former Village Hall, Storstugan, was built in the workers village as a place for the estate’s employees to meet. It has been renovated into a charming restaurant where we’ll have a tasty lunch made from the best locally sourced ingredients.
On our way back to Gothenburg we will make a stop at Bräutigams, which is a confectionery founded in Gothenburg 1870!
Please note - When you book your ticket, please inform us if you wish to book a Classic tour of the castle instead of the one focusing on the 1920s exhibition. The classic tour has more focus on the history and interior of the castle.
