Carl Larsson-garden, Falun

4.5
#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Dalarna County
Step into the world of Carl and Karin Larsson, one of Sweden's most beloved artistic couples, at Carl Larsson-garden. The garden is a place where you can take a peek into the artists' everyday life, admire their work, and spend time outdoors surrounded by lush nature. The Larsson's home, known as Lilla Hyttnas, is preserved in its original state as a monument to the couple's creativity. To get a true sense of contrast with a typical 19th-century home, visit the house of the Larsson's neighbors, the Linderdahl family, with its rich collection of period artifacts and furniture. Check the museum's website for a schedule of creative workshops for kids and families. Guided tours are available in Swedish, as well as English, French, and German.

  • The home of Carl Larsson is well worth a visit. Being a great admirer of the Carl Larsson art it is a revelation to visit the place where he and his family lived. Many of his paintings depict the gene...  more »
  • We decided to visit Carl Larsson in Sundborn and really enjoyed when we were there. Magical surroundings and a good story. Don't miss the Museum which is located by the road. When we were there, it was off with 50% discount on everything. Also a fine exhibition on floors two and three about Karin Larsson and her female friends!

  • Finally I came to Essendon and got to see Carl and Karin's home. Incredibly beautiful and worth seeing. Environment where in Sundborn va wonderful. Summery, Swedish and idyllic.

  • Great tour (slightly expensive at £25 for 1 adult and child) and we had our places booked by one of the staff members in advance after the booking site was all in Swedish. Lovely house and grounds but the souvenirs prices are high and the books are in Swedish with no English versions. The walk around the village intertwined with the garden I recommend and is absolutely breath taking!
  • Wonderfully pretty house, some portraits of Carl's family, and the guide gave us some extra facts about the house, along with her great, great grandma being one of Carl's children, which was pretty cool. Their garden is really pretty too!
  • The museum of Carl Larsson is just amazing! In the middle of Dalarna it is about as Swedish as it gets. The museum is still run by Carl and Karin descendants and they live in the house and actually use everything so it is very much alive.
  • Posted is a little pottery shop by Carl Larsson garden. Carl Larsson garden/museum is a must.
  • Wonderful piece of Swedish art history whether you like the artists or not. Must visit if you are in the neighbourhood.
