Carl Larsson-garden, Falun

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.

  • 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!

  • If you love art, this is a good place to go. Nice surroundings as well.
  • 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
