Tjolöholm Castle is one of Scandinavia’s leading Arts and crafts properties. The luxurious castle was finished in 1904, and is said to be one of Sweden’s most amazing buildings. The architect Lars Israel Wahlman designed it in the Tudor style for merchant James Fredrik Dickson and his wife, Blanche. The Castle’s lavish fittings had all the modern comforts of the day, such as one of the first vacuum cleaners, which weighed almost a ton, and state of the art surround showers. During the summer you have the chance to go on a guided tour of the castle in English.
Public tours take place every day during the summer season, and every weekend the rest of the year. Visitors are shown round many of the castle’s 36 rooms. Group tours, in Swedish, English, German or French can be booked year round. The guided tour takes around 45 minutes and are held in Swedish, but the room descriptions are available in English, German and French.
During the summer, guided tours are held in English daily July 1-August 31 (availability is only guaranteed when tickets are bought online). During the tour you will learn more about the castle and its history, but also see the exhibition “Dresses and Decadence – The Stylish 1920s”. Read more about the exhibition here.
