Do you want to learn about the history of this castle? It was originally built in 1575. Today only 2 buildings remain but for 200-300 years there were 4 houses. There also used to be a moat and drawbridge. The northern and southern houses were demolished at the end of the 18th century and the 19th century when the moat dried up. The new castle that you can see in the little forest south of the old castle was built in 1850 and is privately owned. More information can be found on the Gamla Lundavägens website.
