THREE GENERATIONS ULVAEUS – BJÖRN, ANNA AND HEDVIG ULVAEUS WELCOME YOU TO THEIR SLOTTSHOLMEN IN VÄSTERVIK AN ATTRACTIVE, EXCITING AND UNIQUE ARCHIPELAGO TOWN IN SWEDEN
Slottsholmen, located by the sea in an idyllic and charming small town with opportunities for canoeing and other nature experiences, is a fine
tourist destination. A meeting place for residents of Västervik and a destination for visitors from near and far.
The floating Slottsholmen on Water hotel, with 360° sea view, is situated by the beautiful Slottsholmen and is the largest floating hotel platform in the Nordic region. The Ulvaeus family hopes that the breathtaking views in all directions and the outstanding central location on a small island next to the town's ruined castle will make Slottsholmen one of the top tourist destinations this summer.
- I am very proud of Slottsholmen, which I hope will attract a lot of visitors to Västervik, so they can also enjoy my childhood home town. I remember being an errand boy during the summer on Gränsö, the cherry trees which my cousins and I climbed, our summer house on Horn's Udde, and the sailing trips in the Västervik archipelago with my friends Christer and Tony. I'm really happy that my youngest daughter Anna and her family have moved to Västervik and now run the Slottsholmen complex, says Björn Ulvaeus.
- We have big plans for the Slottsholmen complex, and are in particular working to implement a sustainable food philosophy in which deliberate choices, such as using locally grown and locally produced goods, are a given throughout the entire business. I am very proud to be able to continue my father's vision, says Anna Ulvaeus, Managing Director Slottsholmen.
