Come early. There will be a queue. You should take a guided tour because you will see and hear SO much more.

Well laid out historic property with a 'National Trust feel' of a bygone age - allow 2-3hrs for your visit, and extra if you want to take a tour, which takes you into restricted areas.

This small museum offered many articles for your viewing pleasure...antique furniture....walls covered with ornate tapestry..and a small armory collection... It was free. Plan on about 45 minutes. Please do not expect any fine paintings etc.

Built in the late 1800's, the palatial Hallwyl House was the winter home for the immensely rich Count and Countess Walther and Wilhelmina von Hallwyl. The collections include amazing period furniture and art. Admission is free.

Yes at least I did. They are not that great and the family bought some fakes. The attic is full.
