Tjolöholm Castle

Fjärås, Kungsbacka

Castle in scottish style

Tjolöholm Castle was built in 1898-1908 by James Fredrik Dickson and his wife Blanche in scottish style, next to the Kungsbacka Fiord. Since J F Dickson died as the work with constructing the castle had just begun,his wife Blance took over the task. Blanche had a great social comittement and created a whole village for the workers, church, an assembly hall and houses.

The castle shows a fabulous mixture of old atmosphere and new technology. On the grounds are, apart from the castle, the church and village and also a carriage museum.

The castle's park and the beautiful surroundings offer walks and baths.

The café has the same opening hours as the castle. The workers' houses can be rented by holiday makers.

Tjolöhlom church

Tjolöholm church was built 1903-04. The church was meant for the employees of the castle. After a thorough restauration the church was reopened in 1994. It had then been unused for some 40 years. The church is now used for weddings, christenings, concerts, and during the summer, services.
