Gothenburg, West Sweden
Among hills, lush forests between two lakes, only 15 minutes from Gothenburg, you will find Gunnebo House and Gardens. Here you can treat yourself to a break from everyday life by tasting organic and seasonal food in the restaurant, hike in the beautiful surroundings, visit the friendly cows and listen to the unique history of Gunnebo House and Gardens dating back to 1778 during a guided tour. Today Gunnebo is an over one hundred hectare culturally-protected nature reserve. There it’s not only the buildings and grounds that are protected, the knowledge and traditions of landscape management are protected: which includes cutting grass with scythes or by cows grazing on the meadows.
