Another of the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency's and county council's "Naturums" exist here to tell you about the local wildlife as you have a nature reserve nearby. Grimslöv is next to a great lake system and the birdlife is special here with wetland birds as well as birds of prey - a relative even saw an eagle once! Unfortunately, egg snatchers from continental Europe are also common in the area for this reason :-(
Apart from walking around in the smithy (see intro picture) and the mill, you can visit the museum of 1950s and the museum of mansion labourers (statare). It was not easy to work for next to nothing at a Swedish mansion, often from very young years and in all kinds of weather. There is also a herbal garden behind the stables and you can walk around the stream and park landscape behind the mansion itself too. Next to the parking area is also an old fashioned shop with typical sweets and local souvenirs.
The mansion itself was last inhabited by the Stephens family and Miss Florence ruled here until her death and was well known in the area. Today, guided tours are arranged in Swedish, English and German in the marvellous building with even more marvellous things in it as Florence's father was a great collector and in his special room, you can see things from all over the world, some looking like they would belong in a victorian medical display cabinet :-) There are also some dining halls, bedrooms and similar you might expect.
These are the old stables and downstairs is the restaurant, where you dine in the old horse boxes, complete with the old name signs above (there were some famous Swedish warmbloods here once!). The food is international but with a Swedish touch to it and local lake fish is for instance often used. If this is above your budget, there is a café upstairs and you can enjoy your coffee outside in good weather.
Great if you have your own car as the buses aren't that frequent. Follow road 23 south from Växjö towards Älmhult. If you don't have a car, just take bus 123 from either of those two (several a day but long in between).
