Worth a stop
This is a typical homestead from the 1830s, the style of which has its origins in the middle ages. In the summer months there are daily tours of the homestead. Garden café Nyfiket would be delighted to serve you ecological coffee and buns and lunch.
This pottery is one hundred year’s old and is open daily. You can watch the potters at work and visit the store for seconds. Close by is café Café Gökungen and restaurant Solgårdskrogen, both of which are open during the summer months.
This is a feast for the eyes and ears, set as it is in a disused limestone quarry and fronted by an emerald green moat that separates the stage from the audience. World-class acoustics are promised here.
What you see inside the house here is how a wealthy farming family would have lived some 150 years ago and parts of it date back to the mid 17th century. Open summertime, so why not drop in to see one or all of the thirteen functional buildings?
Come to see the rich bird life and enjoy the bathing spot for dips in the lake.
