Svaneholm Slott – a view into history
Learn about the daily life of the noblemen and their families
Built in the 1530’s as a fortified castle, Svaneholm still reminds visitors of a time where noblemen were to defend themselves. Today the museum and restaurant attract visitors who can dream themselves back to manor life of the past 500 years. The concept of the exhibition is showing the daily life of the nobility and the pheasantry during the 1800. Visitors can add a walk through an English park and along a nice path around the lake with woods, swampland and open fields. A very good restaurant offers fresh food and snacks. A new seminar room is set up to offer workshops.
The exhibition will be extended with stories from people working on the estate and the social life among the nobel families in the region. Guides in authentic outfits show the fashion at the time. A new section will display the The Scania War with Denmark in the late 1600.
Rutger Macklean was the most famous owner of the former estate, who inherited it in the late 18th century with 7,000 acres and four villages. The museum will tell his story and his remarkable inventions and reforms.
