    Haha, fun to see the photos again :-) That movie was really made in Mariefred and Gripsholm. And the protagonist was working as chef in Gripsholms Värdshus :-)

    So this is where Gripsholm Castle is! I only know of it because of the novel by Kurt Tucholsky (and the film). Nice to read about the train station and the town pump in your tips.
