Located 12km southwest of Simrishamn, the striking, five-storey Glimmingehus dates from the early 1500s and is one of the best-preserved medieval castles in Sweden. Features include an all-encompassing moat and 11 resident ghosts! Guided tours in English are at 3pm daily in July and August (less frequently the rest of the year). In summer there’s a stellar cafe and a program of medieval events and activities: contact the castle for details.
