The Haunted Castle

IMG_0528

Well, to be honest I have no idea if this place - yes it's called a castle, even if it's basically a large villa, namely Ljunglöfska Slottet (The palace of Ljunglöf). Situated slightly offside in one of the north-western suburbs of Stockholm, nowadays conference facilities and available for privatue functions, it was originally built around 1893 by the Swedish snuff-king Knut Ljunglöf -

is haunted. But nevertheless it gives me a very eerie feeling. Pretty, but completely spooky. Especially when desolate, in black-white and snow falling. However, I'm not sure colour makes it any more homely and inviting...

That's awesome! Is there anything Stockholm doesn't have? How much money would it take for you to spend a night there alone? I would love to go through it! : )

I think we have pretty much all the essentials covered! Apart from perhaps tropical weather, palmtrees and some wild animals...

I should think the money for spending a night alone there would depend on the amount of possible hauntings going on, decent food, a good book, a key so I can lock the door to my room and a duvet to hide under. Since of course no ghost could get through a locked door or rip a duvet of the bed...:)
