Visit another age It’s closer than you think. A time when people believed that elves and gnomes hid in the mist. When small farms lay close together, and the ringing laugh of a child could travel a kilometer through the air without meeting anything else than birdsong. The lake shone like a silver mirror in the sunlight, and beyond the stony pasture land the forest began – green, wild, and full of mystery.

Welcome to Äskhult

Take a stroll around the log cabins and the ancient agrarian landscape. Go for a walk around the lake. Churn butter. Get up close to a Lindesröd pig. Say hello to a 19th-century farmer. Feel the bark of a “warden tree”. Enjoy a freshly-baked traditional Swedish “fika” in the café.
