In 2018, we set up Skärgårdskrogen, which accommodates about 150 guests and which are weather-protected places out on the terrace.


With the new castle terrace's best sun position, we maximize all the sun's of the day to reach the terrace and our visitors.

Verkö Slottslager

As a tribute to one of the most beautiful places in the Nordic countries, we have carefully looked for a brewery that corresponds to all that the beautiful Verkön offers.

We found what we were looking for at Jämtlands Bryggeri in Pilgrimstad, an American type of Steam Beer that originally comes from the USA and a brewing method from the late 1800s, the era and the golden years for the world's steamboats.

Verkö Slottslager has a golden yellow color and is very suitable for good food or just to enjoy as it is.

Verkö Slottslager is served as draft beer and is 5.0 vol%

The story of Verkön

The nobleman and domain superintendent Fredrik Wilhelm Tigerhielm moved to Verkön in 1881. He was very interested in gardens and planted a forest garden on the island. There were, among other things, willow trees and berry bushes as well as a wood-fired greenhouse.

In 1893, the island changed owners again when it was bought by Lieutenant Colonel Sigfried Henning Napoleon Behm. At first, Behm only used the island as a summer home, but after he expanded the villa (now called Verkö Castle) in 1905 and pulled in water and sewage, he became a resident. The farm then had 25 hectares of cultivated land and a herd of 25 cows, 7 horses, pigs, sheep and chickens.

In 1914, electricity was introduced to the island by means of a wind turbine. Electrical energy was stored with the help of 64 large lead-acid accumulators in the castle's basement.

In June 2013, Per-Åke Wahlund lands on the island with the clear ambition to make a long-term investment in quality, service, community and good tastes. We want Verkö Castle to be a comfortable place for everyone to visit, now and for future generations.

A Jämtland, Swedish and international meeting place.

Welcome to Verkön, Storsjön's gem!


Here you see the owner of Verkön castle, Sigfrid Henning Napoleon Behm with family and staff in 1916. The Behm family acquired the whole of Verkön in 1893 and began construction of the castle the same year and moved permanently to Verkön in 1905 with family and servants when the castle was completed.

Project Verkö Castle started with full force
on June 13, 2013

June 13, 2013, a day to remember. Immediately in the morning, the purchase agreements were signed, after which we held a well-attended press conference at 10.00.

At 2.30 pm, the Verkö Castle project got underway with full force.
In a few hours, 30 tonnes of building materials, transport vehicles, timber wagons, etc. would be flown over by helicopter from Norderön to Verkön.

The next morning, June 14, at 07:00, the first craftsmen arrived on the island and the work of renovating, cleaning, thinning, painting, carpentry and building our new castle terrace of 400 square meters began.
The schedule was very tight, because July 1, 2013 was the date for the inauguration of the then Governor Britt Bohlin, and then Verkö Castle would be open, accessible and enjoyable for everyone!

A big THANK YOU to everyone who with great enthusiasm helped us get the project Verkö Slott to completion!
