The Castle Gift Shop
In the castle gift shop you pay for admission to the castle. Here you can buy presents, books, souvenirs, toys and other pleasant memories from your visit.
The castle gift shop has a wide range of souvenirs, confectionery and toys. Here are replicas of cannonballs, candelabras and historical glasses, as well as books worth reading about Borgholm Castle and Sweden’s history. For the children there are knight toys, entertaining children’s books and family games. Of course there is ice cream and cold drinks for hot summer days.
Modelled on a candelabra from the early or mid 17th century. The original was found under the floor of the Drabantsalen at Borgholm Castle. It is assumed this floor was constructed around 1650. The candelabra’s upper part was missing but it has been reconstructed after studies of similar candelabras which the National Museum acquired for Läckö Castle. The reconstruction was done together with Lars Sjöberg, curator at the National Museum. The candelabra has a round, cast base plate, a baluster-shaped stem and an arm section with three candle holders with large, round drip pans.
Borgholm’s candelabra is produced by Gelbgjuteriet Lindstedt & Sons on Öland. Each candelabra is numbered and King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia own candelabra number 1.
Borgholm’s candelabra is exclusively sold at Borgholm Castle.
