Kloster mining estate with surroundings
Kloster has been a bustling area since the 1400s, when smelting-houses for iron and copper production were built here. The spot received its name from a Cistercian monastery that was built here and completed in 1486 CE, as Sweden’s northernmost monastery. You can still see the foundations from the monastery next to Kloster museum, where you can learn more about the area’s rich history. Kloster manor was built in the 1700s and is located close by alongside a reopened English park. The table is placed in a nature reserve next to the English park, a 10-minute easy walk from Kloster manor. It’s easily accessible for wheelchairs.
The table is part of the initiative “The Edible Country” that Visit Sweden launched, and it gives you the possibility to book a make-it-yourself meal where the menu is created by renowned chefs. Görgen Tidén, chef and entrepreneur, brings you a tasty adventure:
- Let’s go to the woods! For those that wants to join this will be an experience you won’t forget any time soon. Just think about it, sitting at a handmade table made from old pine, cook yourself or choose the option to be served a menu that is designed just for this moment. Some call that exclusive fine dining… I call it common sense.
Extend your experience - stay at B&B Klosters Herrgård and Långshyttans Brukshotell
After a whole day in the great outdoors, why not spend the night at Klosters herrgård, where you’ll sleep soundly to the roar of the river rapids. The bedrooms are on the top floor of the manor house, where you’ll be left alone to enjoy the peace and quiet. The manor can be booked by one group at a time so you and your company will have the manor to yourselves.
