The von Ehrenheim family home at Gronsoo represents a rich and diverse example of Swedish fine arts and handicrafts from three centuries
Grönsöö have always been the home for its owners, which it still is. The manor have never been completly rebuilt, but have been continously developed owner by owner, generation by generation. Traces from all timeperiods have therefore continously been preserved in a today most unusual way.
What is really special with Grönsöö today, besides it still is a family home, is the rich collection of inventory with furniture, books, paintings and artpieces that still is intact in the manor. They ar not collected at a certain time, but have been inherited in long lines of inheritance in the von Ehrenheim, von Engeström, Benzelius, Benzelstierna, von Baumgarten and Blomstedt families.
Experience a guided tour by a member of the von Ehrenheim family in a more and more unusual collection of antiques in its proper environment!
