Hällefors & Grythyttan

Visit one of the many pleasant restaurants to enjoy local specialities such as homemade ice cream, cloudberry wine, sheep’s cheese and other delicacies from nature’s larder. Mealtime experiences are considered so important here that Grythyttan even has a building dedicated to meals, Måltidens Hus, which, among other things, houses a cookery book museum.

Culture and nature experiences

Hällefors is renowned for its residential areas adorned with works of art. In Mästarnas Park, for instance, several sculptures by well-known Swedish sculptors are on show. You can also take a nostalgic trip to visit the two 1950s apartments by the park. With nearly 400 lakes and waterways, there are plenty of opportunities for swimming, kayaking, sport fishing and salmon fishing. In the centre of Hällefors you can join the Silverleden hiking trail, or hire a canoe or a bike to take you out in the wilderness. There are plenty of forest paths and excellent MTB trails. Go for an adventure or enjoy a quiet moment in front of a flaming fire by one of the peaceful forest tarns. Do visit the spa Loka Brunn and drink some of the healing water from the health spring in Bergslagen.
