Gunnebo castle

Gunnebo Castle is one of Sweden's best and stylistically one of the purest examples of neo-classical architecture. It is beautifully situated between two lakes, Rådasjön and Stensjön, in the Municipality of Mölndal, just south of Gothenburg. At the moment they are restoring parts of the castle. This is a webcamera following the work.
Oh! Beg my pardon. I forgot to tell you Sweden is GMT +1 so the picture is black during our nights.
