1. Mölndal: Gunnebo House and Gardens Guided Walking Tour
Visit one of the most complete 18th century estates in Scandinavia, Gunnebo Palace and Gardens, on a walking tour. Learn about the Hall family who built and lived in the palace and about the striking architecture of its gardens from your local guide. Walk into Gunnebo Palace and feel like you've stepped back to the 18th century. Located on a hill, the neoclassical manor house stands tall and overlooks the surrounding countryside. Hear stories of how the house came into being. It was constructed at the end of the 18th century as a summer residence in the neoclassical style for John Hall, at the time one of the wealthiest men in Gothenburg, who hailed from Scotland. Learn how John Hall engaged the services of the city architect of Gothenburg, Carl Wilhelm Carlberg, to design the house and the surrounding gardens, the servants’ quarters, and the service buildings. After your guided tour, stroll in the neat and manicured gardens and try the organic and seasonal menu at the restaurant and café.
