Photographer's Note

Taxinge Castle and its vicinity have a rich history. As a young boy, August Strindberg lived in the Bellgarden some summers, for example. He was captivated by the beautiful lady of the castle, Ebba Augusta, and is said to have taken her for a model when he wrote ”Miss Julie”. The castle has also taken part in some movies: Ingmar Bergmans ”Cries and Whispers” and the wedding scene in Bille August’s ”Den goda viljan” in english ”The Best Intentions”.

Taxinge Castle café. In the ”Cake Castle”, you can get a taste of northern Europe’s largest cake buffet (see WS). Everything is baked locally. No artificial ingredients or semi-manufactured products as far as the taste buds can savour. What do you think about exciting names like Treasure Chest, Gemmy or Almond Flower? There are about 60 different kinds, from Sacher torte to carrot cake. For the truly hungry, we offer good sandwiches as well. A big feast for both eyes and stomach. Choose to sit inside the castle, in the castle yard or in the promontory garden overlooking Gripsholm Bay.
