Last Saturday I had been to this castle LÃ¤ckÃ¶ Slott some 120 kms north of GÃ¶teborg. This castle is in the southern tip of the Lake VÃ¤nern. SÃ¤ffle, where I had been some weeks back, is in the western part of VÃ¤nern.
LÃ¤ckÃ¶ Slott is best known as De la Gardie’s magnificent castle/mansion on the shores of Lake VÃ¤nern, but it is much older. In 1298 Brynolf Algotsson, Bishop of Skara, laid the foundations for a fortified castle here. Probably no more than a redoubt surrounding a few simple houses, it was nevertheless strategically located in the middle of his diocese. (Details)
There is nothing here apart from the castle, and the wonderful lake. But its good enough to spend 4 or 5 hours.
Please check the entire set, over here. I have tried to describe as much as possible 😉
LÃ¤ckÃ¶ is close to LidkÃ¶ping. There is a bus 132, which leaves from LidkÃ¶ping once in two hours. From GÃ¶teborg, you can reach LidkÃ¶ping by taking a train to Herrljunga, and then the amazing KinnekulletÃ¥get. All of these are operated by VÃ¤sttrafik, and the cheapest way to commute is by buying a day pass(Costs 240 SEK).
