A perfect Swedish summer at Läckö Castle
By Alejandra Cerda Ojensa
Located in the Vänern archipelago outside Lidköping, Läckö Castle invites visitors to experience the perfect Swedish summer: organic produce, lunch at the café, walking paths, historic buildings and activities for the whole family. Come in your camper and stay at the campsite or check-in to the B&B or the hotel. The castle was built in the 1200s and features interiors preserved from the 1600s
“We have a lot of guests interested in the past, and we collaborate with the Swedish National Museum to give our visitors an insight into Swedish history. This summer we are hosting a lot of exhibitions, ranging from sculptures to paintings. Läckö Castle is where history, nature and culture come together,” CEO Jan Malmgren says.
For children, there is a range of activities: treasure hunts, interactive tours in nature, as well as a chance to take a closer look at insects. If you’re travelling without children, you might be interested in delicacies from the local fishermen – Lake Vänern, the largest lake in the EU, is known for its vendace roe – or why not stroll in the garden or go for a swim?
Benjamin Ingrosso, Tommy Körberg and Lasse Stefanz are performing at the annual Läckö Sessions, which attracts up to 5,000 people, in July and August. The opera Macbeth, premiering in July, will be performed in the courtyard five times a week until 5 August.
