Carl Larsson-garden, Falun

(4.5/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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. A visit to Carl Larsson-garden represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Falun vacation generator to plot your vacation.

  • Nice to go on a guided tour in this painter's house but in general overrated I would say. The Zorn house in Mora I find much more interesting! Unfortunately you are not allowed to take photos inside. 
  • It is an experience, to wander around in the Carl Larsson's home and enjoy what was the "typical Swedish environment!"

  • Amazing and beautiful. This is a must see when visiting Sweden. Make sure to do the tour. So informative. I love history.
  • Very beautiful place. The guided tour (in Swedish) lasted about 45 minutes and was really interesting and informative. The café is nice. It has a good lunchbuffet for 125 sek.
  • Well worth a visit. Really genuine surroundings and the guides are competent to answer most of your questions.
  • Gardens were very ordinary, but the tour of Carl's house totally made the trip out to see it worthwhile. A truly authentic artsy swedish country home. Overcrowded tour groups because of midsummer- had to wait a few times as there were groups backed up before and after us
  • Very authentic in every way. A must see for any art enthusiast!
