Where forests and lakes are your

closest neighbors


Welcome

The editorial staff, the municipality of Skinnskatteberg and all our local representatives warmly welcome you

to one of Sweden’s best kept secrets. Experience sightseeing both historic and contemporary. Looking for

excitement and adventure, tranquility and nature, luxury and high standards, or maybe a mix of it all? Regardless,

many of Sweden’s biggest cities. We hope that this brochure will help orient you to all the wonderful opportunities

we have to offer. We also hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Welcome to Skinnskatteberg!

Galleri Astley

Facebook: Galleri Astley

Galleri Astley is an exciting cultural hub known among

art enthusiasts throughout the world. Started in 1968 by

Astley Nyhlén and family in Köping then moved in 1977

to its current location in Uttersberg. The stately railway

station from 1897 (designed by Theodor Dahl) became

the new home for the gallery. In the mid-1980s Uttersberg’s

historic brick magazine was renovated to accommodate

the gallery’s expanded operations. Exhibitions

are held year round in these adjoining buildings and a

sculpture park emerges from the grounds outside. Works

by established Swedish and international artists focus

on painting, graphics and sculpture - from figurative to

abstract expressionism. On the lower level of the large

magazine there is a glass, ceramics and jewelry store

by artisans from all over Sweden. The gallery also has a

print and screen workshop, and arranges concerts and

other activities.

Museum Tree of Life by

Facebook: Museum Tree of Life by Ernst Neizvestny

Museum Tree of Life by Ernst Neizvestny is the

largest collection in Europe with sculpture, painting and

graphics by the Russian born Neizvestny. Famous for the

monument of the Lotus flower at the Assuan Dam in Egypt,

Nikita Khrushchev’s tombstone, and two major monuments

for Stalin’s victims in Magadan and Yekaterinburg, Russia,

Neizvestny lived in the US from 1977 till his death in 2016.

But summers in Uttersberg played an important role for this

international artist as an unspoiled and tranquil retreat from

the hectic pace of his New York life.

Café Guldmisteln

On the lower level of the gallery is Café Guldmisteln.

Traditional homemade desserts and simple sandwiches

served. Larger groups can be accommodated by

booking in advance.

Ekomuseum Bergslagen –

a museum in the open air.

The whole of this ‘museum’ encompasses 200 km from

north to south, including 68 historically significant locations

to visit. Cabins and forges, mines and quarries,

mansions and castles, tiny smoke houses, village schools

and churches, even whole villages are included within the

Sweden’s iron industry began more than 2000 years ago.

Of the 68 sites included in the Ecomuseum Bergslagen,

14 of them are in Skinnskatteberg. Visiting them all

means you have travels approximately 2700 years back

in time, from the earliest iron production at Röda Jorden

(The Red Earth) to present day—that is if we don’t count

WHEN iron first was created for 4500 million years ago.

”Take the path leadning to stunning of life living”

29


Nestled in the heart of Bergslagen between lakes

Upper and Lower Vättern lies Skinnskatteberg. Skinnsberg,

as locals call it, is a community of 4400 residents

known for its nature, deep forests, fish-filled lakes,

education opportunities with an active community and a

rich cultural history.

Skinnskatteberg began as an iron industry town in

1626 until the factory closed in 1909. In the 1600’s only

3 hammers were working to process iron ore, but by

the middle of the 1700’s the number had increased to

24. Monumental blue slag stone piles and other natural

byproducts of iron production remain in the exact

location today as for over 100 years ago. Among our

local treasures is Skinnskatteberg’s own manor house

constructed in the later part of the 18th century by the

head of the local ironworks Wilhelm Hising and designed

by Eric Palmstedt. Since 1944, the manor house

has housed a forestry and agricultural school.

Skinnskatteberg also boasts 7 preserved manor homes,

the most tightly packed area of historic manor homes in

all of Sweden. Next to Skinnskatteberg’s manor house

lies the local church. It is said that the church is built

on the site of the pilgrim’s resting place. Every year,

monks passed by here on their pilgrimage to Nidaros,

now known to us as Trondheim, in Norway.

Since 1952, Runes Sport has been a destination for

the sports enthusiast. Runes Sport has a fully stocked

activities.

During the summer, fishing, camping, cycling, hiking,

and jogging are the sports in focus, from shoes to an

in-house bike shop and a large selection of fishing

equipment for all you need to succeed on the water.

During the winter months skiing, both cross-country and

alpine, is our focus and has been for the last 30 years!

We have one of Sweden’s largest selections of cross

served in a manor house and

the season’s start of the culture

center Korpen’s top-notch performances.

These are just a few of

the things to do when fall comes

around again.

Greet spring with a round of

mini-golf, take a fika and listen

to the snow melting off the roofs,

eat a luxurious meal filled with

early spring vegetables, or treat

yourself to a spa day with heated
