The castle was built by Conrad von Falkenberg and his wife Catharina Bonde, and was nished in 1646. The stone in the castle comes from Kinnekulle. In the 1850s, the castle owners Carl Leuhusen and Wilhelmina von Knorring rebuilt the castle in a neo-Gothic style, drawn by Hjalmar Wijnblad. During this time, the beautiful barn buildings in natural stone was built as well as the dairy house and the impressive three-arched stone bridge - which today stands as Sweden's oldest exemplar. Also the grandiose tree alley was planted during this time.Today, the country estate is privately run, with farming as well as hotel and event operations. Also, Europe's rst climate-certied beef production is run here, under the well-respected brand Brstorps Castle. The castle is partly used as a private home, but also sometimes rented for conferences or larger gatherings. In the late summers there are opera nights, and in the fall, large hunting dinners and smaller concerts. The castle has the rights to ten years of hunting dominion on the grounds, which spans 810 hectares. Brstorps Castle is located two hours from Gothenburg, three hours from Stockholm, and fteen minutes north of Mariestad.Everything taken into consideration, Brstorps Castle is with its unusually beautiful natural landscape, well-taken care of forests and buildings, and varied business possibilities a piece of property that one loves the moment one sets one's eyes on it.For further information and showings, please email jonas@residence.se, thank you!
