Visiting Nääs Slott is like stepping into the nineteenth century. Very little has changed since 1898, when the last private owner died. The tea cups are still out on the tables and the beds are still made and waiting for guests. Educational activities at Nääs Slott are busier than ever and you can choose among a wide range of courses in woodwork, building preservation, arts and crafts and popular culture.
