Stora hyttnäs offers visitors something out of the ordinary. The history of the house and gardens reaches right back to the sixteenth century; today, however, it is an authentic example of a typical upper-class home from the early 1900s.
Every crook and cranny of the house reveals interesting findings. The library contains books dating from the seventeenth century and the wardrobes reveal a magnificent collection of sumptuous fabrics. That Carl and Karin Larsson were frequent guests at the house can be deduced from the decorations in the drawing-room.
Out in the garden, a 1880s garden under German model, scrumping of apples by smeltery and mineworkers was observed as long ago as the beginning of the seventeenth century. The Gubbäppelträdet or "Old-Man" apple tree is one of the oldest in the country and to this day still yields a crop of apples.
Open in the summer with guided tours. If you are visiting Sundborn, make sure you also visit Carl Larssongården, Sundborn Church, or just take a stroll through the village by the water.
