Real history here
Gunnebo House and Gardens was originally built as a summer residence for the Gothenburg merchant John Hall, and has now become a popular place to visit. It was designed as a total work of art by the Gothenburg city architect, Carl Wilhelm Carlsberg, during the 1780's. Carlsberg designed buildings as whole concepts, including the interior furnishings and gardens. There were over 200 original plans used as the basis for the comprehensive reconstruction projects that have taken place since the 1990s to restore the building and grounds to their original appearance. With the help of the drawings, the original furniture has been found and placed in the house. Today it is one of the most complete 18th-century estates in Scandinavia. Let yourself be fascinated by the history of the Hall family together with a guide.
