Just south of Gothenburg lies Gunnebo House and Gardens and it's one of the finest examples of neoclassical architecture in Sweden. It was built as a summer villa for the wealthy merchant John Hall and his family. The estate offers guided tours and other events, coffee house and restaurant, gift shop and a farm.
The decoration and furnishing of the house, and the landscaping was designed by the city architect in Gothenburg, Carl Wilhelm Carlberg. Gunnebo is today a living cultural environment with guided tours and events, coffee house and restaurant, a shop and a farm.
The area is a cultural heritage since 2003. The whole park has been organically certified since 2006 and is run organically, with emphasis on the historical garden crafts.
The gardens are always open. There are guided tours of Gunnebo House and gardens all year round, at set times. You may not enter the manor House without a guided tour. Groups can pre-book tours in English or German.
