Don’t be content with a little May month has hit all heat records. According to sources in the weather service, Uppsala has measured the warmest average temperature since the measurements began in 1722. And about the same should apply to the rest of the country. 1722. It was the same year that the Russian Tsar Peter the Great decided to no longer demand extra tax from men with beard. US President George Washington was not even contemplated, and it would take another fifty years before the country finally made itself free from England and achieved independence. (And another fifty years before the Sioux led by Sitting Bull pummeled General Custer at the Battle of Little Big Horn.) The world’s heat record, in other words. At the same time, the croaker caw that rest of the summer will be cold, for sure. “It will be a fake summer.” “So? Why?” “Because it’s was so hot. We may be happy with that.“ ” Why?“ “To ... to be content with a little.” If you hear a call reminiscent of the above, you must promise to intervene. Why should you be happy with that little one? Of course, we want a hot summer that expires until October, right? While you (hopefully) are enjoying the sun and bath you can watch crawling in the shadow between the bug and read about Malou von Siver’s amazing story , as well as the amazing cultural heritage that the Hälsingegårdar represent. Do not miss the wonderful exhibition with Gabriele Münter in Louisiana, north of Copenhagen. And why not book a trip to Barcelona? They will certainly not get as beautiful summer as we are here in the Nordic region! We wish you a lovely warm summer and enjoyable reading. Wherever you are!

Fröding in Damascus? Fredrik Apollo Asplund describes himself as an energetic happy dancing gay. He is an actor, but also a show-dancer for, among others, Rebecka & Fiona and Little Jinder and speaks fluent Arabic. Under the headlines “The gay professor”, he made a series of radio reports for P3 on sexuality and identity in Lebanon. He made a one-man performance called “This is my story” with premiere at Kulturhuset Stadsteatern 2016 and then toured in Sweden with the National Theatre and became a big success among young people. Norrstedt’s publishing house is proud to publish Apollo’s autobiographical story. Fröding never danced at the gay club in Damascus, describing a boy from the Värmland forest born to care for the family’s farm, but dreaming about Flash dance. The book will be released July 30th, under the Stockholm Pride! AE www.norstedts.se

Tha house has a long history that extends hundreds of years back in time. As early as 1697, the property, which then named as Tjärkolet, had its current size, with an associated cottage and cabbage farm. The house has since been called several things, such as Klinteroten and Mästermanshuset (due

to that the city’s executioner lived there.) In the second half of the 17th century, the construction of the stone building, which today is the main building. In 1866 additional parts were built and the property became the largest building in the neighbourhood. By the end of the 19th century a bakery was opened in the main building’s bottom floor, while the rest of the building was working as a residence. The bakery remained a bit in the 1980s and was then replaced by a framework workshop. In 2007, the property was converted into an apartment hotel named Tjärkolet after the property designation. In 2015, the current owner took over the business and then built the upper floor of the property to include a B & B business that complements the existing apartment hotel. From 2016 the business is run under the name Visby Inner-city Apartments & Rooms. RED www.innerstadshotell.se

Jane Austen at the culture in Lund Until September 2, 2018 you can see the exhibition A Sense of Jane Austen - costume and history at the Culture in Lund. Costumes from filmmakers of Jane Austen’s novels, Pride & prejudice, Reason & Feeling, and Persuasion appear in a playful frame. The women in Jane Austen’s novels are in many ways privileged, but they are also economically exposed and live during a histori-

cal period when society is undergoing major changes. In the books there is a ton of criticism of the upper class social conventions and rituals that inhibit the novel characters, especially the women. In the exhibition we will cover themes like Women & Premise, Fosterage & Skills, Baler & Scandals and Visits & Rituals. RED

In the exhibition, the visitor experiences historically inspired images and show 1600s portrait that never been painted, and images that reflect the current situation of transgender people RA www.murberget.se

Badmode och kroppsideal Swimwear engages and discourages. A number of factors shape how we dress when we bath. This is partly about how men and women socialize. But also what materials are available in combination with how we look at the human body. The exhibition shows examples of swimwear from different decades; cotton and woollen knitwear, the wholesale company’s supply, later creations in lycra, to name a few examples. Here is also the film from “Beachlife in Mölle» from 1911.. RA www.murberget.se

Estrad Norr provides The merchant of potato The potato dealer became famous after Lars Molin’s filming of Ulla Eks novell. Molin’s characters are often a bit of contradiction and have problems with self-esteem. They want to do things in their own way and maybe not always the way the outside world thinks is rational or logical. The story revolves around the farmer Johansson and the daughter Märta who manages the farm together. Johansson grows older and would like to see that Märta met a man. Then one day Sture appears on the farm and he wants to sell potatoes ... “If you have seen Molin’s film, you will recognize the classic, stupid situations that the characters end up in. But our set is more showy, with live music and dance,” says Malin Tengvard, who plays Märta. RED www.estradnorr.se/potatishandlaren

Noterat Copenhagen’s floating islands An uninhabited island is currently flowing around in Sluseløbet in the middle of Copenhagen, and soon it will be eight. If you don’t have a summerhouse, debark your boat or kayak to one of the islands and then you can sunbathe, bathe and grill the best you want. The Danish design studio Fokstrot launched the project in order to focus on improved port environment, as well as to study how climate impact and elevated water levels can impact on urban areas. The first island, named the CPH-Ø1, is 20 square meters and has a lonely tree in the middle. The island is handmade according to traditional boatbuilding traditions of recycled linden tree. Since the premiere a month ago, it has been used for stargazing, cold baths, fishing and events. For the future islands there are plans for saunas, cultivation of clams, floating gardens and maybe even a sailing café!

The World Heritage Hälsingegårdarna

Come along on the Great Hälsingegårdars road The journey stretches from Alfta to Edsbyn with vestibules, carved doors and interior decorations in farmhouses, in fairy-tale-like settings, that flashes by. Also, forests, fields, seven majestic villages and the pulsating river Voxnan pass through in this thousand-year-old cultural landscape. Come along on the Great Hälsingegårdars road that ends at the Edsbyns museum. An experience with elements of grand paintings created by mysterious magical masters and two World Heritages’. A world-class adventure, a journey into the mighty history of Voxnadalen.

THE GREAT HELSINGEGÅRDARS ROAD The journey begins in Alfta and continues through over nine villages, set in a cultural landscape, and comes to its end in Edsbyn. Upon arrival, we have travelled 28 kilometres through an amazing display of the mighty history of Voxdalen.

First stop: Ol-Anders, at the entrance to Alfta



n aesthetically appealing and artificial brown and white flower sign acts as a guide throughout the entire Great Helsingegårdars road. It weaves its way for 28 kilometres through the Alfta and Edsbyn parishes. The parishes, both belonging to the municipality of Ovanåker, are located in the southwestern part of Helsingland, 14 kilometres east of Bollnäs and right on the border to Dalarna. Ol-Anders, proudly located on national highway 50 in Östra Kyrkbyn at the beginning of Alfta, acts as the perfect portal to the beautiful display of the mighty history of Voxnadalen. The wooded Hälsingegården offers both aesthetics and everything we can expect from its mighty history. Architectural wooden art, painted red, characteristic of its time and, inside some of the buildings, beautiful interior paintings, painted in bright colours, with witty texts full of cleverness, dated 1848. Here you can also find the Emigrant museum and the Children’s World Heritage site with its own creative workshop for the younger guests as well as Café Agnes where you can purchase the typical Swedish ”fika”, coffee and cake. Here at Ol-Anders you can also find one of the province’s four visitor- centres for the World Heritage site Hälsingegårdarna. Last, but not least, one of the farmhouses

at Ol-Anders offers an exhibition with artwork and furniture created by the brilliant and local colourist and naïvist artist Mårten Andersson. Born in Freluga, just a mile away, in 1934 Mårten Andersson paints the perfect picture of the magic of Hälsingland through his colourful and mystical world, strongly rooted in the local and folkloric culture. Festivities, music, love, humans, animals and buildings reappear as a common theme in his art through an overflow of colours and shapes. His art and the Ol-Anders farm literally screams: “Join us on a grand journey!”. The adventure of The Great Helsingegårds road starts now!

Ol-Anders invites you to an exhibition of Mårten Andersson’s art, naivist and colourist from Freluga, known for its folkloric and colourful themes of Hälsingland. Here the painting “Solkroken”. Photo: Gudrun Axman- Jumisko

THE ROYAL HUNT Lim- Johan, when creating the painting in 1902, made his living through various jobs as a farm hand on the different farms around Edsbyn. It was around this time that he started to paint. In Kungajakt, one can see a few of his reoccurring themes such as dog and moose. “Lustgården, före syndafallet” was created almost a decade later and was found by a sensational accident as protection in the subfloor of a building in Edsbyn in 2016. It was thereafter sold at auction at Bukowskis, however, to a buyer not connected to Edsbyn and therefore making it a big loss for the parish. This painting is number 29 in Lim-Johan’s famous production.

LIVING CULTURAL HISTORY The wood castle in Arbrå has, through its exciting history, built a strong cultural capital that has been well preserved by today’s cultural work. Visitors are during the summer invited to a broad spectrum of cultural workshops focused on local handicraft traditions and activities such as street dance and graffiti. Last but not least, one cannot forget last year’s attraction, the coffee house’s waffles, served in the garden. Delicious!

The wood castle in Arbrå – culture magnified History stands firm with its past farm constructions and the legendary Willy Maria Lundberg’s work in the 1960’s, enhanced further by today’s cultural work. The wooden castle remains one of Hälsinglands most popular attractions.


he Wood Castle in Koldemo in Arbrå, situated by national highway 83 only a few kilometres north of Bollnäs, embodies most of what is associated with Hälsingland. Its surroundings consist of a billowing ancient landscape with mountains, forests and the river Ljusnan as its background. The grand farm is, with its brownish colour, strict but lavish façade and murals, just what the name describes. A wooden castle. It dates back to the 19th century when the farmer Hans Andersson had the farm built. It was named, as it should, Hans Anders and it was where the discovery of the first so-called mystery painting chest was found. The chest is today owned by the wooden castle. The wooden chest was sold at an auction in the year 2000 and contained painting tools along with 350 models and a price list. According to this list of prices working on one room would, at that time, pay a wage of eight Swedish crowns, a vestibule five and a table one. A male farm hand would, however, earn only a quarter of a Swedish crown per day. The chest has been linked to the painter Görs Hans Hansson whom, together with his wife, wandered into Boda parish in Dalarna in the middle of the 19th century. He is said to have created the murals on the top floor of the main building and the chest is playing a significant part in the piecing of the farmer’s unknown life.

Part two of the exciting history of this farm begins in the 1960s. Journalist Willy Maria Lundberg turned the farm into a stronghold of consumer journalism. At that time, the building was also referred to as the Wooden Castle in everyday speech. Willy Maria Lundberg, born in 1909, worked for many of the big newspapers of the time, produced radio, wrote travel guides and was a commissioner on the states consumer council. She was on a war-path against produce of inferior quality which was in line with her interest in everyday issues concerning cultivation. The Wood Castle became, under her ownership, a meeting ground for seemingly radical women. Willy Maria Lundberg put, through her charismatic persona and the farm’s history, the Wood Castle on the cultural map permanently. A legacy even today administered in the same honour by the owner Erik Martas Persson foundation. Here you can find one of the regions four visitors centres for the World Heritage site Häslingegårdarna. This year’s summer program is filled with activities of a wide range of cultural genres directed at people of all ages. The social responsibility pathos runs like a common thread through the entire operation. The city of Bollnäs conducts job training in the garden and the charitable company Glös Bolaget runs the café. On the café menu, one can find a sandwich, made in the farm’s own bakery, made of homemade flatbread and cheese made of milk from the farm across the road

and traditional Hälsinge ham. This sandwich in particular, with its locally produced produce and consumer-friendly perspective, would definitely have pleased Willy Maria Lundberg. A top grade indeed of her, oh so beloved, Wooden Castle.

IMPORTANT SOURCE OF KNOWLEDGE The World Heritage Site Bortomthe Åa in the village of Fågelsjö, located eleven miles west of Ljusdal, acts as a unique document of the time. The main farmhouse was suddenly closed in 1910 following a move into another building on the property. It remained untouched up until the middle of the 1940s and today it acts as an important source of knowledge. Notice also the decorated and beautifully carved vestibule, such joyful carpentry.

Hotel Järvsöbaden, old guesthouse traditions from Hälsingland Old time Experience. But still - updated in time. Welcome to Järvsöbaden, the traditional guesthouse in Järvsö, where guests like the author Astrid Lindgren and the Crown Princess couple previously stayed. Meet some pure history from Hälsingland.


he old farm Järvsöbaden in Järvsö in the northern part of the landscape has ancestors dating back to the 16th century, when it’s said to be a guesthouse there. The tradition “is in the walls” and as you walk through the doors, it feels a bit like time has stopped. In 1867, judge and forest owner Olof Persson bought the farm, later he suffered from rheumatic aches and went to treatment in Sunne. When he came back he proclaimed: If they can - we can! We have the air, the nature and



our own water with a source from the mountains. Let’s start a spa treatment hotel - and on that road it is. Sverigemagasinet meets Inger Ångström, hotel manager and one of those who run the board today. How is it to run a guesthouse in Järvsö? – It’s a life, it’s not a job and it’s amazingly fun. The guesthouse has been around since 1905, so today, the third and fourth generation working in the family business. Me and my husband Pelle who is the fourth generation in family, lives here on the farm, we have about 30 seconds to go to work. Many people may think it’s a minus to live and work

so close to each other, but on the contrary, it’s positive for us. We have a summerhouse, so we can go away if we want to get some privacy... Pelle is the chef and CEO here and has grown up on the farm but he’s trained to cook in Stockholm. Worked elsewhere a few years and returned. In 1987 Pelle joined and started the mythical restaurant Aquavit in Manhattan, New York. You were with him and worked and you stayed there for 18 months. I suppose it’s an indispensable knowledge that you brought with you back home? -Yes, we moved home to Järvsö in 1989, and have been here since then. We have been

The World Heritage Hälsingegårdarna mentioned in The White Guide, Pelle is very good at food. We want to market ourselves as an ancestry hotel with a sense of hospitality – We have many old-fashioned rooms that we very much care about and preserve precisely for that reason. Our keywords are environment, food and reception. We do not want to modify but like to take care of what we have. You have a fantastic garden made for relaxation and recreation. And a gazebo stands in the pond in the garden. Do you use it? - The gazebo in the garden is a gift we received from the civilians in Järvsö when Järvsöbaden celebrated its 100th anniversary. And, yes, we have parties there sometimes. As regards gardening, its Gunborg who cares for it, Gunborg is the third generation after Olof Persson, she is 83 years and works five days a week. She does a lot in the garden and has real green fingers. It is an honour to sit next to Gunborg at the front desk and works with her. Gunborg gave her life to the pension. Lill-Babs, “the Queen of Songs” in Sweden, was recently buried in Järvsö Church. Did you have many guests? – The hotel was reserved for funeral guests and we had 270 people here on coffee afterwards. We served 6000 sandwiches. I’m glad I have time to participate in the church. We had recently prepared a room for Lill-Babs who planned to celebrate her 80th birthday here, but unfortunately it was not so, but the room is ready. Other regulars have lived here and have their own rooms, such as the author Astrid Lindgren and Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel. Will Järvsöbaden still be here in 50 years? - Yes, it will. We have many children who want to carry on the tradition in Järvsöbaden, but because we playfully say that we will work to 85 years and have Gunborg as a model, it will take a while before the children can step up. We hope and believe that the hotel will continue to operate according to our terms even in the future.

A weekend of love – We want to contribute to spread love and consideration, explains Niclas Lagerstam. 11-12 August is the time for Let’s Make Love Great Again at Gärdet in collaboration with Prince Carl Philips and Princess Sofia’s foundation.


he big goal? To gather all Swedish people around a positive message about love and heat between people. It manifests in a big festival and love manifest at Gärdet in Stockholm Saturday and Sunday 11-12 August. The initiative comes from Niclas Lagerstam, entertainment organizer behind festivals such as the touring the music festival Putte in the Park and much more. - With Let’s Make Love Great Again, we want to contribute with positive pictures, events and meetings, says Niclas Lagerstam. But also national activities like the Gärdet weekend from 11 to 12 August. The festival weekend, 11-12th Aug, Let’s Make Love Great Again, in collaboration with Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia’s Foundation, as co-organizer. The foundation aim, among other things, to

work against hate and bullying online. - There is something that fits very well with the questions that Let’s Make Love Great Again want to lift, says Niclas Lagerstam. The prince couples Foundation is currently working with the campaign # viberättar(we tell) aimed at children and young people who have been exposed to something online that does not feel okay. The foundation will be in place with representatives during the festivals to tell me more about the campaign. “Everyone wins if we are nice against each other. Through a manifestation of love, respect and consideration, we take together with Let’s Make Love Great Again the next step in spreading more heart online and IRL “says Sofia Ewerlöf, Head of Operations at the Prince Foundation. The two days will consist of classical concerts with a large number of famous artists, lectures, art, and culture and, above all, meetings between people.

After Gärdet, the campaign continues in a three-year project where Let’s Make Love Great Again, among other things, will create local activities across the country - in sports clubs, theatre groups, lectures and other stuff. READY ARTISTS LET´S MAKE LOVE GREAT AGAIN, GÄRDET 11–12 AUGUST:

”It’s easy to find women with great skills” In 2014 was Malou von Sivers awarded the Great Journalist Prize with the motivation “After a long time as a journalist and reporter on Expressen and Aftonbladet, and the launch of TV4, countless news and debate programs and 1250 episodes of ”Malou After Ten“, now comes the debut novel a trilogy about her life.





alou von Sivers really loves her job and have always been prepared to fight for women’s rights and to assert the women’s position. The Sverigemagasinet is having a chat with Malou in one of the rare breaks between the projects. How was the working climate for women in your industry when you started, in relation to today? – It has always been a struggle. I participated in the Aftonbladet Women’s reaction and was fought daily to bring in female subjects in the newspaper. I was the only female crime reporter and most often identified me with the victims instead of the police chase. Then I came to Bonniers and started Swedish Elle where I became editor-in-chief. Lucas Bonnier fired me because I was pregnant and would be parental leave, but it became a settlement and money. A little bit funny is that I many years later got Lukas Bonnier’s Great Journalist Prize. He must have laughed in his heaven. Lukas had great humour. After the resignation from Elle I became employed at Tv4, when the channel started, and there were very many beautiful young women, weather girls, and older guys who became managers and who knew everything. When I started at the Morning News with Bengt Magnusson I got to fight to get the same salary as him. But now it’s better, much better. I am the manager, producer and program leader of my Malou program after ten and can affect working conditions and journalistic. In addition, TV4 has several female executives in high positions, and I do not think the industry dominated by man anymore; on the contrary, it’s often missing male talented journalists. It is easier to find women with great skills. You often interview people about sensitive subjects. How do you get so close? What’s the trick? – To listen, be curiously interested and show respect. Never look down in your papers, keep an eye contact, and posting follow-up questions instead of following a questionnaire. It is important to keep in mind why I will do the interview. What do I want to tell you through this person and how? – If you only make a sensitive interview, it can easily be speculative. But if the person I’m going to interview is sure why they want to tell their story, often to help others, you often contribute to bite the head of the shame and

removing stigma. And that can really make a difference. In your programs you have met many exciting personalities over the years. Which meetings have touched you the most, and in what way? – Oh, that’s a difficult question. I have travelled around the world and interviewed world names like Nelson Mandela, Winnie Mandela, Aung San Suu Kyl, Ingmar Bergman, for some examples. But I have also done interviews in My Program Malou After ten. We have just finished our 25th season, meaning 1250 pro-

interview five years after his wife’s death. But suddenly after many years of inquiries from me he said yes. It was about life, death and love and became very different, personal, sad and funny. My heart’s concern (Mitt hjärtas oro in swedish) is the first part of a trilogy, a story that stretches from the beginning of the last century to today. How did it felt releasing parts of your own life in the book? - It’s a history, so I’ve used my family history as inspiration and springboard, but then fantasized about these novel characters that increasingly began to live their own lives. The more I wrote the more far away from my own story they came. But the feelings were the question-if you can inherit a wound, I’ve carried mine my whole life. What are the differences between releasing parts of themselves and experiencing when guests do the same in your programs? – It is a big difference between asking the questions and reveals you. I have always let my guests stay in the centre and held myself back. But when I did Summer in P1, I took a big crucial step and told me about my upbringing and the complicated relationship with my father, who has characterized me in good and bad. It was an incredibly positive response that touched me deeply. Have you always written? Did you write diary as a child?

grams, which represent thousands of people. There have been many who touched me and stayed in my mind. Strong personalities who have gone through difficult things and then got back and moved on. It is instructive and impressive. Which is the best / worst interview you have ever done? – One of the worst experiences never came true. It was recently in our season end. I would interview interviewer Ola Rapace for 18 minutes in live broadcast, but he never came and did not got in touch with us! I sat there with an 18-minute gap in live broadcast. I shouted after the actor Pia Johansson who had been in the beginning of the program and talked about dogs. And then I did an interview about her life. It was very good and Pia was brilliant. The best interview was enough with Ingmar Bergman together with Erland Josephson. It was a world scoop and the interview has been featured in many countries and at film festivals around the world. Bergman had not given a single

– I have always written and always fantasized and dreamed away, especially when life became heavy. I have found stories, read up in front of class, but never written diary strangely enough. What are your future dreams when it comes to your work? – I love to work with my Malou program, After ten, I will continue with it, but in between I want to write. I have finally realized that I dream of becoming a writer and the stories crowded in my head. The second part of my trilogy comes this fall and this summer I sitdown on my glass-porch and write the third part that feels the hardest and therefore as a big challenge.

The King’s Guard The Association of Beridna Högvakten has developed into a true people movement. Many people participated in the vote when the new horse was to be baptized. It resulted in a tribute to the artist Tim Bergling, more famous as Avicii. “The whole of Sweden’s horse” has been named D’Avicii.


verigemagasinet meets Olof Karlander, Chancellor of the Association of the Beridna Högvakten, and talks about horses, ceremonies and a growing membership group. – The Swedish state ceremony contains high guard and parades in connection with, among other things, state visits,” says Olof Karlander, and continues: – It is the Armed Forces that contribute with people and the resources needed, together with the head of state chiefs own resources. For more than thirty years, the Association for the Beridna Högvakten has been responsible for the horses and their costs. What is the background to the association? – There was a thought that you would dismantling the Horses in the Armed Forces sometime in the 1980s, but it resulted in strong reactions from many angles. Many people thought



we had a very nice state ceremony with Beridna Högvakten. The business is actually quite unique - even from an international perspective. It came to an agreement between the government and the parliament that the Swedish people were to bear the costs, and so it should be. Then the Society was formed for the Beridna Högvakten, so it is a civil organization formed by people movement. Our activities are mostly funded through membership fees from our more than 25,000 members, and in addition we have about twenty companies that sponsor us. How often do you have the opportunity to see the Beridna Högvakten? – The prepared performances consist of about 40 parades annually and a number of procession, which vary according to the number of state visits we have in Sweden. It is a big responsibility, and we are therefore keen on become more members of our association, the fee is not so high but makes great use for us. Many believe that the horses in the state ceremony

are funded by the state, but that’s not the case. - The Association is responsible for the purchase of horses, horses training and most of the overheads. The state does not contribute, but the Association has handled the task well in all years. The number of members has actually increased each year during the 2 thousand century, which is quite remarkable. This indicates that there is a stable interest among the Swedish people in keeping the horses in the state ceremony, which of course is pleasing. Is it very expensive to buy horses? – Yes, they cost about 150,000 skr, including education so it’s obviously a big expense. We buy 8 - 10 horses a year. We buy them when they are about four years old, and then we train them for about a year. After that, they will receive one more year’s training of the Livgard’s Cavalry within the Armed Forces. Are the horses coming from Sweden only, or do you buy abroad also? - That depends, says Olof Karlander. We have three breeds in the Beridna Högvakten.

Culture The battery horses are Shire horses, an English cold blood breed, which are the biggest horses available. They are very large and weigh about 900 kilos. They should be black with white socks, that mean that they are slightly white on the legs. We have two such, and the battery uses them. They go first, just after the drum majors - that is the ones who lead one of the Livgard’s orchestra. – We also have Skimmlar and they belong to a very rare breed called Kladruber, they come from an imperial stuttery in the Czech Republic. We have 6-7 ones, and they mostly go to Livgardets Dragon Music Orchestra They are also called trumpet-horses, because they are very calm and stable in their temperament. One can say that they are cousins of ​​ the Lippitzan horse, which is well known. The main reason we buy them from the Czech Republic is that horse racing in Sweden is highly focused on racing. All our other horses are Swedish warm blood, and they are adults. In a ridden guard parade, there are between 48 and 52 horses, and in a shortage there are 56 horses. Do you employ the riders? – No, it is the Armed Forces responsible for the business, but we own the horses. There are soldiers and officers from the Armed Forces who participate in the parades. How did you think that the Windsor Horses performed during the British prince wedding the past time? – Absolutely excellent! England has a very fine state ceremony, which came to light in connection with the wedding. They have black horses while we have brown. You also take the horses on a tour on a few occasions each year. Where can we see them this year? – We think it is important that the Swedish people get to know our business, and thus it should not only be a phenomenon in Stockholm. Because we have members throughout Sweden it is important that we offer opportunities to meet us. Everyone can’t come to Stockholm, so we get to meet our members outside the country. – We going on a weekend tour every year to Kalmar on September 8 and Växjö on September 9th. During the day we perform a parade in town, and in addition a concert on the horses with Livgard’s orchestra. In the evening we also give a concert without horses, in the concert hall of the city, something that is often appreciated, concludes Olof Karlander.

Among the city’s main landmarks is the fabulous unfinished Sagrada Familia Cathedral, created by local architect Antoni Gaudí. During his lifetime, he leaves many impressions in the city, including the magic sago park Parc Güell. And between the yards, the city offers lots of cosy eateries.


Barcelona is a family-friendly city, so even a day at the beach can include fun activities. But there is also plenty of other fun within easy reach. The city has its own zoo, an amusement park and an aquarium plant with an 80-meter



long tunnel where sharks slide around. A bit outside the city is also Europe’s second largest amusement park. One of the city’s biggest trump cards is its combination of intensive big city and relaxed seaside resort. But the habit of bathing in the middle of the city is quite new. Thirty years ago, the district was down to the plagues, Barcelona, yet another very poor fishing district

and the beaches were not inviting But now the area closest to the water has turned into a whole pearl band of fine sandy beaches lined with bars and taverns. Barcelona has a touch of working class with washed clothes on the drought between the roofs of the narrow alleys, but unfortunately it’s only a matter of time before a brighter establishment replaces its many genuinely

Travel neighbourhood and bars. One of the best pleasures in Barcelona is to completely easily walk around, soak up the atmosphere and admire all the beautiful buildings. Gaudi’s fabulous buildings set its unique feel on the city. Do not miss highlights like Casa Mila and Casa Battle. They are both located along Passeig de Gracia, one of the city’s major avenues. LA RAMBLA AND BARRI GOTIC

Ramblan stretches from the port to the south to the main square of Plaça de Catalunya, which with its big department stores is the heart of the shopping district. North of the square constitutes the extension of the Rambla de Catalunya walkway to the north into the distinguished district of Eixample. Here the crowds are smaller, the walks is beautiful adorn with benches and protective

Ciutat Vella, also known as Barri Gòtic, is the oldest part of the city with narrow picturesque streets designed for cosy walks. Here is an abundance of bars, restaurants and cafes. The wide boulevard of La Rambla constitutes the border between Barri Gòthic and El Raval and extends 1.2 km to Plaça de Catalunya. Walking along La Rambla is an experience in itself. Along the busy street there are market stands, flower shops, exhibitions and street performers. The long paradise street has a wide, stony walk in the middle, fillet stands and kiosks with flowers and much more. On vacant surfaces, street artists fight for space to gather crowds for their often super-professional shows. The folklore is wonderful, but watch out for burgles, crushers and all kinds of mufflers. City authorities think that the street An example of Antoni Gaudís richly varied artistry. has become all too popular among the trees and lined with shops and bars of a bit tourists and they have recently banned certain more luxurious kind. Here are many exciting types of street sales and planning a complete and slightly different stores.. renovation of the area 2019. Among the establishments along the street are the magnificent PARCS AND RECREATION Mercat de la Boqueria commercial hall and For those who are tired of both beach life some good as the old fine patisserie Antiga and city pulse, the city offers a large number Casa Figueras with “stockholmers” among their of relaxing parks and other nature experienexcellent pastries.

and different experience. Up here you will get one of the most panoramic views of the city. A walk on the skywalk here further enhances the sight impressions. The mountain is the site of the city’s oldest amusement park, opened in 1901, and for those who do not have the age for carousel skiing, the old-fashioned tivoli lake is a very pleasant setting for a snack or for a coffee. FOOD AND PLEASURE

The range of restaurants and tapas bars is huge. Tapas are served day and night, and many bars always include one or two tapas when you drink something. Ordering a lot of different dishes to share is often a culinary experience. The Spanish cuisine with meat dishes, fish and seafood is highly appreciated. The nightlife begins late and goes on into the dawn. SHOPPING IN BARCELONA

Barcelona is famous for it’s shopping. you find all big chains here and they often have not only a store but also several. If you want to take a break in your shopping, just sit down on one of the many tapas bars along the way and take something to eat and drink. FOOTBALL IN BARCELONA

The football team FC Barcelona is one of the city’s premier prides. They are playing their home games at the famous stadium Camp Nou. As one of the world’s best football teams with some of the biggest football stars, tickets to Barcelona’s matches are highly sought after.

Barcelona is Spain’s second largest city and capital in the Catalonia region. The city is founded in the year 230 BC by Hamilcal Barca, father of Hannibal. The constitution will be elaborated in 1060 and the word Catalonia will be written for the first time. Today, Barcelona is one of the world’s most visited tourist destinations with over 5 million visits a year. In 1992, the summer Olympics were held in Barcelona. City pride FC Barcelona has won La Liga 25 times, the Champions League, the European Super Cup and the World Championship for club teams, and has 20 international titles which is a record.

Sagrada Familia

– the jewel of Gaudís crown

Cosy Sitges The beautiful seaside town of Sitges is approximately 35 kilometres southwest of Barcelona and is sometimes called Spain’s Tropez. Here gather families who love beach life, couples celebrating honeymoon and wealthy life-lovers. Residents of Barcelona often travel to Sitges over the weekends, because many of them have summer cottage. Sitges has a long sandy beach, trendy shops and some sights. The city’s main landmark is the church of Església de Sant Bartomeu in Santa Tecla. Three museums offer a combined ticket that gives access to everyone. It is Museum Cau Ferrat with works by the artist Santiago Rusiñol, the Museum Maricel del Mar craft museum and Museum Romàntic depicting the life of a Catalan 19th century family. RENTAL AND PRICES

It takes no more than half an hour to reach Sitges by train. There are four rodalies trains per hour from Barcelona, and the price for a ticket is approximately 2.50 euros.




The most famous attraction in Barcelona and Spain is the Church of the Sagrada Familia. The Church is fully funded by donations. In recent years, revenues from tourists have also contributed to a better financial situation for the project.The construction began on March 19, 1882 by the architect Francisco de Paula del Villar. The following year a dispute arose between the architect and the financiers, whereupon Part Villar resigned and the work was taken over by Antoni Gaudí. Gaudí began to redesign virtually the entire project and realized that it would take many, many years before the church was ready. When protesting voices were raised for the long-term project, Gaudí easily responded that his client had no hurry. In order for the church construction to flow as smoothly as possible, Gaudí built a school right at the one corner of the church. The school was for the children of those who worked with the Sagrada Familia and also for the children whose families belonged to the congregation. In 1914 Antoni Gaudí decided to indulge in the project with the church. He even lived in a small room next to absiden, a room that

really was used to make models, drawings and sketches for the church building. Gaudí realized that he would not live long enough to see the church fully completed, and left guidelines to the architects that one day would take over the work. Unfortunately, a great deal of Gaudi’s drawings, models and sketches were destroyed during the Spanish Civil War, when anarchists put both the school and the crypt on fire. One of Gaudi’s co-workers, Francesc de Paula Quintana, managed a few years later to restore and recreate some of the models and drawings. Thanks to Paula Quintana’s patient work and respect for his former colleague, one can still follow Gaud’s guidelines and ideas on how to complete the basilica. The church is far from finished and the latest plans say it will be completed only in 2030.

gain insight into Picasso’s versatility and development. A regular visit begins with sketches and oil paintings from Picasso’s early years in Málaga and La Coruna. This includes several selfportraits and portraits of his father from the late 19th century. The tour continues through Picasso’s time in Paris, through his blue period, Cubism, and finally a lesser-known side of the Legendary painter, namely ceramic art.

he city’s most visited museum is housed in five stately and linked together stone palaces built between the 1200 and 1400s. All buildings can be accessed via the common courtyard. The first three houses are as much a delight to the eye as the actual exhibitions in them. FAVOURED HIS YOUTH CITY

Pablo Picasso, born in Malaga in 1881, studied at various art schools in Barcelona as young (1895-1904). Although he spent the remaining 69 years of his life living in France, in 1960, he took the initiative to place the great museum over his act in the youth city. The collection contains no less than 4 249


works, of which several masterpieces. The emphasis is on the painter’s early period, which appears almost complete to and including Picasso’s famous “blue period”, which came in handy last year in the city (1901-1904). The selection is enough for you as visitor to

Expect queue to enter if you visit the museum during the most tourist intensive period of the year. But it’s worth it. Pablo Picasso is nevertheless perhaps the greatest artist throughout the 20th century.







Gabriele Münter Colorful summer in Louisiana

Take a trip to Louisiana during the Copenhagen visit this summer! The seaside art museum, idyllically nestled in greenery, offers a fantastic exhibition with German artist Gabriele Münter. A colourful and enriching experience waits – for children and adults alike.


ouisiana The museum in Humlebæk, half an hour’s drive north of Copenhagen Harbour, invites you to a wonderful meeting with one of the 20th century biggest female painters, who got late into the limelight. Gabriele Münter (18771962) was an independent, searching, colourful and liberated woman who once and for all made herself free from the epithet “appendage” in modern art history. As a visitor, you get a comprehensive picture of her long and multifaceted career - including many paintings that have never been shown before. Münters work has long been regarded as part of German expressionism and the years with the group “Der Blaue Reiter” (1911-1914), with which she was a co-founder. But perhaps she has most of all been associated with Vassilij Kandinskij (1866-1944), for whom she had a long relationship with. The great Russian artist was her teacher, companionship and companion, a relationship that unfortunately ended with his betrayal and leaving

her. Münster notes in his diary from 1926 “I was in many eyes, just an unnecessary attachment to Kandinsky. That a woman could have an original and genuine talent and being a creative person of your own power were ignored. The exhibition at Louisiana is the first truly comprehensive retrospective of her works for decades, and the goal is for the visitor to have an opportunity to consider Gabriele M Münter’s work with new eyes. For the children, this is a great opportunity to get acquainted with an art treasure that will create many nice memories. The exhibition is organized in cooperation with the Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus und Kunstbau and Gabriele Münter and Johannes Eichner Stiftung in Munich. The exhibition is supported by C.L. Davids Fond og Samling, Consul George Jorck & Wife Emma Jorck’s Fund, and Arne V. Schlesch’s Fund.

KORT BIOGRAFI Gabriele Münter levde mellan 1877 och 1962 i USA, Tyskland, Frankrike, Schweiz, Sverige och Danmark. Innan hon började måla, hade hon ett stort intresse för fotografi, som väcktes under en resa till USA. Med kameran i handen fångade hon och höll fast ”världen”, och man kan tydligt se att Münters konstnärliga utveckling inleddes med fotograferingen. Kort efter började hon måla nästan dagligen och fortsatte på det spåret resten av livet. Gabriele Münter var en öppen och experimenterande konstnär med ett stort internationellt nätverk och så småningom även en omfattande utställningsverksamhet. Under första världskriget lever hon i Stockholm och Köpenhamn, där hon 1918 har sin dittills största separatutställning. Hennes samlade verk omfattar ca 1.200 fotografier, över 2.200 målningar, tusentals teckningar, akvareller, glasmålerier, grafik och brodyr.

for all tastes and stomachs


Green Star is the brand that has emerged from the consumer’s needs. Everybody loves chocolate, and everyone wants good chocolate. But before Green Star there was not really good chocolate for lactose intolerant or vegan.


e had an early selection of sugar-free sweets that were popular. There were many questions from people who had no options because they could not or would not eat regular candy or chocolate. That’s how the idea of ​​Green Star grew up, says CEO Krister Green. Since Krister and his colleagues had a lot of experience in finding producers with high quality ingredients, they decided to try to create new products that turned to people who for some reason cannot eat ordinary sweets. A febrile hunt for producers began. First out was a series of lactose free chocolate. What did not know then was that many more than those who are intolerant would like the chocolate. – We have teamed down a huge effort to find the right producers that are as careful as we are with ingredients and flavours. It’s our rule number one, we are careful with the taste. It’s not enough for the chocolate to be lactose-free, it must also be the best chocolate, says Purchasing Manager Magnus Hallin, who travelled in large parts of Europe in search of chocolate inspiration. LACTOSE FREE SUCCESS

The lactose-free range quickly became highly demanded and is now available at all major food chains and other well-stocked players. Because Green Star has a very close contact with consumers, not least via Facebook, questions about vegan chocolate began to emerge. At the headquarters in Hallsberg Krister and Magnus decided to invest in another product range. “We have a principle that all our products should have at least two distinctive features, as we look at our marking” Your Choice “on all our packaging. Therefore, we decided that

our veg chocolate would also be ecological. Of course, it did not make it easier to find producers, says Krister Green. Again, the search for manufacturers began and Green Stars test panels worked hard to get the right flavour. The first launch, however, did not really produce the expected results, probably Green Star was a little too early, and the market was somewhat immature. When a new launch was made, the veg chocolate was also given a new package. – We were sure that we had a good chocolate and that there was a demand. Therefore, we tested with a new packaging design there we did something that nobody did before. We placed the table of contents on the front. It turned out to be an ingenious idea. The target audience must always turn on everything they buy to see the content. Now they felt we spoke directly to them, says Krister Green.

chocolate to all of them that previously was unable to eat chocolate. – If you do not find Green Star in your store then ask for us. Everyone is entitled to good chocolate, Krister concludes. Text: Anna Ekberg Photo: Green Star


The interest in vegan chocolate has grown enormously since the autumn 2017 and it only continues. Krister and Magnus notice a great interest in all Green Stars products. It’s not just about the fact that the buyer wants lactose-free or vegan candy, it’s also about that the consumers wanting to make conscious choices. Today, Green Star sells chocolate and sweets in the country’s stores worth about 40 million a year. And now it buzz of ideas at Green Star in Hallsberg. News is going on. – We are in the process of tasting new exciting flavour mixes for chocolate and other candies, that is something that many ask for. Because we are so fussy with the taste, it’s very demanding, but it’s coming. We also work with more sugar-free products, says Magnus Hallin. Interest for Green Star has been spread and exports to Norway and Denmark are growing. we are of course excited about the growth, but we are even more pleased to offer really good

At beloved Astrid Lindgrens world! The first the children sees when entering Vimmerby is the big sign with Pippi. – PIPPI! The children Scream happily, and the excitement is untidy – soon we will enter Astrid Lindgrens magical world.


Immediately when you get inside the entrance, you travel back in time to this old environment, were most of Astrid’s tales takes place. Going to the right, you enter the Bråkmakargatan and it feels like you are on the street where Lotta lives, in most of the houses you can also go inside and explore in detail how they lived. A little further up the street you can visit the Police house where the kids immediately heard strange sounds, a knock? ... and another sound that sounds a bit scary, think the youngest, we go closer to check out ... The sound starts to sound familiar, it sounds like daddy when he is asleep! We are looking closer and inside a cell there is actually someone sleeping. In the cell next to, it still sounds like someone wants to come out, but we agree that they probably are



in the cell because they have done something stupid and the police took them. We continue on to the street when we meet two shady types talking about going home to Pippi Longstocking to check on her gold as they were told. They address each other with the names Karlsson and Blom ... Around the corner we walk into another environment that feels familiar, and the world’s best Karlsson with a propeller on his back shuffles past and says the show begins soon, we have to sit down for the show begins soon! A few minutes later, all the children who are spotted before the show have begun, see how Little Brother meets Karlsson on the roof for the first time and, Karlsson invites all the children to the stage so everyone can play! Suddenly all the children are in the show. Amazingly fun for both the children and the parents. It all ends with the fact that all the children are playing together with the actors.

Kids In the same house but on the other side there are lots of slides of all sizes available and there are swings, lots of swings! A little further away, we see the Prusseluskan on a bike together with the police Kling and Klang, they want to announce that there soon will be a questionnaire and you can win a nice book. Dunder-Karlsson and Blom show up and think they can win the book, but soon they realize it’s probably better they continue looking for Pippi’s gold instead. A little further up the street we come to a farmhouse with real horses, cats, goats, pigs and hens. We meet Ida who will feed the pigs. Soon her brother will show up, Emil. Emil pumps up water from the well so the animals are allowed to drink, but the bucket leaks quite a lot, so all the children are allowed to help him. Soon we will meet the whole Emil family and the next performance begins. We go on and get into a forest, where we find a small town, a tiny little town where all the houses are really small, all the houses are like shrinkage size, so they are just great for the kids, here you could have kids spend the whole day without being strangled. In the end, we had the kids to move forward so we did not miss the Pippi show, on the way we come to something like a castle, here lives the Lionheart brothers, but unfortunately, the actors are preparing to prepare for future shows so the area was temporarily shut down. It’s probably lucky, because I think we all got a bit scared when we later heard Katla’s roar from the cave. Here’s how the day goes on with characters

and environments from Astrid’s tales with visits to restaurants and playgrounds. Here’s something for all kids and adults to do, it does not matter if you want to play, discover, watch shows or just spend some time in the grass. The performances are absolutely wonderful with both dance and song, and the audience can participate in one way or another. And the actors always take time to meet the children after the show for playing and busing. Even at the guesthouse, you have built cottages and houses that resemble something directly from one of Astrid’s fairy tales. With a big smile, the children fall asleep faster than ever ...

This year celebrates the 60th anniversary, not just once but twice! Sverigemagasinet has a chat with chairman Börje Svärdström.

Year after year, it is written about how the trips abroad make a record. Do you feel that the Swedes rather go abroad? – In fact, Sweden’s tourism has increased in recent years and the reason is that there have been some concerns about some old favourite destinations that have hampered the charter trips. Why have you become the largest in Sweden? What’s the charm of camping life? – We are the oldest chain and have built up the membership for 60 years and with good marketing we have become famous for having nice Camping’s at a very affordable price through members’ non-profit efforts at our facilities. Is there any common denominator among your members? Families? Retirees? – The common denominator is that our guests aim to sit at the long table in the evening and thus bring new friends whom you

would like to return to or visit and even maybe the following year, travel with you. The children also play a big part, they usually find new friends at Camping. Jubilee – How do you celebrate and where? – We split up the Jubilee Meetings on two occasions, the first one took place in the Mora Park weekend 27/4 – 1/5 2018 it was of a bit more formal touch with lecture, anniversary dinner, troubadour evening and celebration Next Anniversary will be on the High Chaparral weekend on August 10-12 with more focus on children with the Wild Western Show and some surprises.

Street fun

Stockholm Street Festival on tour 84


Street fun

DynaMike is bit of a crazy Canadian street performer who has performed for 22 years in front of audiences all around the world. He is now preparing for a summer on the streets of Sweden.


verigemagasinet had a chat with DynaMike. – During the winter I was in Copenhagen and wrote new material, created costumes and thought of you, my dear audience, says Dynamike. While the rest of Sweden goes on vacation, the Stockholm Street Festival is heading out on a tour around the country to entertain holidaymakers with four international top performers doing their stuff out in the streets. DynaMike is one of them. He has made more than 5,000 appearances worldwide since 1996 and is one of the most professional entertainers doing the rounds. A stunt man to go with his street artistry, he’s on tour in Sweden from July 14th. – I go through it again and again like a madman to create a joyful, colorful, crazy and powerful show on your streets, says DynaMike. For example, I have some new ninja-inspired machete tricks to show off and a new gaudy

whip which I’m currently learning to dance with. And a chainsaw, because … well … all men are really like boys who like chainsaws. Dear Swedes, if you think you are prepared for what you’re about to see...think again. The eternally young and forever enthusiastic director for the whole show, Thorsten ”Magic Thor” Andreassen has in addition to DynaMike, this year brought along the Argentinian clown Fermin, who with little means evokes the magic of everyday life with the audience. Like Charlie Chaplin, this poetic, Latin American artist represents the lonely little man on the street. Also accompanying the entourage is New Zealand artist Toni Smith. A globetrotter who last year participated at the Stockholm festival and performed her playful hula hoop show with skill, humor and by forming a strong bond with the audience. After seventeen years of experience in circus’ art forms worldwide, Toni Smith will be accompanying the tour this year. Included in the entourage is the living statue The Golden Fairy from the considerably

closer country of Denmark. This spreader of joy from Copenhagen enriches with warmth and scintillating contact all the people who pass her. The popular circus school for the younger ones will also join the tour in Stockholm only. At Medborgarplatsen, in Skärholmen and Bagarmossen, the festival also presents - in collaboration with the Wallery Gallery - some of the country’s leading street art artists who will paint live. It was already a success last year. Follow the Stockholm Street Festival on Tour this summer! July 14 - August 4.

he Bergman Festival is an important part of Dramaten International’s initiative to contribute to artistic development that brings both audiences and performing artists to joy through exchanges and cooperation across borders. The festival is an important complement to our regular repertoire and we greet public and guests warmly to Dramaten during the eleven intense days, says Eirik Stubø, theatre director and artistic director of the Bergman Festival. 2018, the year when Bergman was going to be 100 years old, is highlighted worldwide. So also at the Dramaten where the Bergman

Madame Nielsen made a celebrated guest show at the former Bergman Festival. Now she is back and throws an X-ray on today’s Europe. Here, five theatres with five plays meet up to a common performance that will have premiere at the Bergman Festival. The theatres participate with actors and directors. Madame Nielsen has written the plays based on trips in the five countries and interviews with actors and political organizations from the different cities. Directors from the five theatres set up their play with local actors and Madame Nielsen graduates the final interlacing of the plays to a performance. What is a nation? What is a hometown? What is a native language? What is Swedish, German, Spanish / Catalan, Danish, Serbian? Madame Nielsen is an internationally acclaimed Danish performance artist and author, over the years known in different characters - among other things. Like Claus Beck-Nielsen and the nameless pro in Das Beckwerk. She prides herself on identities and sorting and always asks the question: What is a human? Topographies of Paradise is a unique cooperation project with five European theatres: The National Theatre in Belgrade, Serbia; Theatre Lliure, Catalan National Theatre in Barcelona, ​​ Catalonia / Spain; Theatre Academy in Ludwigsburg, Germany; The Royal Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark and Drama and the international network MITOS21. Manus and Coordinating Direction: Madame Nielsen Director Drama: Tobias Theorell Contributing Drama: David Book and Ellen Jelinek


Director Yael Ronen is a dramatist and director at Maxim Gorki Theatre, born in Jerusalem in 1976, with a wide range of acclaimed and award-winning sets. With black humour, she is the most difficult historical and social conflict of our time, and many of us remember her celebrated guest play at the Drama Third Generation. Roma Armee: When newfascist winds cross Europe, a group of actors join forces to form an united, diversified, feminist, queer and Roman self-defence mission. Against structural discrimination, racism and and for liberation from an internalized victim role. Among the actors are Romania, Romans and traveling Romans from Austria, Serbia, Germany, Kosovo, Rumania, England and Sweden (Lindy Larsson), and also Israelis Germans and Berlin’s -turkey. Together with the British artists Delaine and Damian Le Bas they outline a vision for a safe European home in Gypsy Europe.

Love and hatred in Strindberg’s life and work. No dramatist was more important to Ingmar Bergman than August Strindberg. Bergman returned time and again to Strindberg’s plays. From Strindberg’s enactor at the Student Theatre to the sharp and personal staging of The Ghost Sonata 2000 at Dramaten. It is therefore a great pleasure to present Hotel Strindberg from the legendary Burgtheater. The young, experienced and novel film and theatre director Simon Stone, born Switzerland in 1984 and raised in Australia, challenges and relegates with visually acclaimed sets where classics get new contemporary life. Why would not the theatre be able to reach the same audience as today’s most attractive movies and TV shows? His set of Lorcas Yerma at Young Vic in London was a very successful success, as did his set of Ibsen House in Amsterdam on the Toneelgroep Amsterdam. In Hotell Strindberg follows the audience in the nervous paths of Strindberg’s life and works. It is mainly about love and the struggles between man and woman, or “love hatred”, with Strindberg’s words. The scenes are very free from both Strindberg’s biography and several of his works, such as The Father (Fadren), En dåres forsvar or Son of the Service woman. Parallel events and dramatic happenings are played in front of the newspaper and etch the image of a society, an epoch. Hotel Strindberg is magical and intensive, fast-paced and breakthrough interaction between actors, scent technicians and attire. On stage there is Martin Wuttke, one of Germany’s top performers. Director: Simon Stone Dramaturg: Klaus Missbach Contributors: Franziska Hackl, Barbara Horvath, Roland Koch, Caroline Peters, Max Rothbart, Aene Schwarz, Michael Wächter, Martin Wuttke, Simeon Zagermann Scenography / Costume: Alice Babidge Light: Michael Hofer Music: Bernhard Moshammer August 30-31, Great Stage.

Sophisticated bohemian

K & US History begins in Stockholm in 1994. Marie Karlberg and one colleague who both works as a buyer at the department store PUB, thinks that something is missing on the market for women’s clothing. A void they decide to fill.




Knitted linen coats, velvet jackets and leather bags in vegetable tanned leather. All in K & US design.


& US was started to offer something we found missing, says Marie. Feminine, colourful and well-made garments in clean and durable natural materials, such as linen and wool. It was 24 years ago, but the vision remains. Marie now drives the company alone, where K stands for Karlberg and the US stands for employees and partners. Over the years, the company has developed its own style and still manufactures clothes in fine natural materials. In addition to linen clothes and beautiful knitted wool garments, there are also soft viscose dresses and a collection of organic cotton. In K & US DNA you find the natural and durable, but also the one that is beautiful with passion and reflection in every detail. – Our products will of course be of high quality, but at the same time we think of a little wild and unruly romantic,” says Marie. We can say Sophisticated and bohemian! Marie is the CEO and designs together with Caroline Asplund and she does two collections per year. – It’s fun and rewarding to work with a garment from scratch, from material selection, design, and production and to the minute the customer buying his new garment. A big advantage for our customers is that they can feel unique in our clothes, says Marie. New models are designed each season and the clothes are sewn into small series. However, some models continue year after year, the timeless classics are a perfect base in the wardrobe. Even though K & US is continuously developing new collections, it does not mean that it’s worn and thrown. – We believe that clothing design should not only be about news, it can also mean long-term sustainability. The idea is that our clothes will be worn for a long time without goes out of fashion and therefore not having to be replaced. Choosing clothes with care is also to protect the environment, Marie continues. Marie is passionate about design, but also for the environment. – If I did not work as a designer, I would have worked with recycling, laughs Marie. The great heart for the environment is al-

most affecting all decisions in the company, from the choice of paper to the printer to the choice of freight company of environmentally friendly transport. K & US currently has both e-commerce and a store in Stockholm. – It’s strength to be able to handle two own channels, but of course we meet like all other challenges in the retail store. But thanks to skilled staff and the ability to try many different models, it’s rarely empty in the store, said Marie. From been moving around between different locations in Gamla Stan and Södermalm in Stockholm, the shop be now in the corner of Hornsgatan and Götgatan. The room has large high windows and high ceilings. In 1912, Stockholms Enskilda Bank opened a bank palace in the premises, which is marked down on the vault with the thick walls. From the store, happy laughs are heard, one of K & US’s experienced sellers helps a customer in the fitting room with a dress for the summer’s big party. – I always get a good help here, and I feel happy today too, said Lena, a faithful customer for a long time. I love the fine materials and would never go back to art material. Of course it should be natural! laughs Lena. A sign for K & US is the strong colours and groovy patterns. We know we enjoy colour and fine shapes. One of the first impressions you encounter when entering the store is just the colours. Along with walls and tables there are clothes in splendid colours and lovely patterns. K & US also offers a wealth of shawls in luxury materials. Here you will find what you are looking for, whether it’s a regular woollen scarf or a thin silk shawl for the party. In the store there are also jewellery, shoes and bags. Part of its own design, but also from other brands. The feeling in the store is a little pleasant Bohemian Chic, but it is also clear that there are clothes and assessors for different styles. Strict and timeless, relaxed and casual. And of course, party clothes! Swedish design in natural materials from its best side. Text: Tanja Forsell Foto: Per Myrehed SVERIGEMAGASINET



Disneys success musical The Hunchback of Notre Dame – finally to Sweden Great music, state-of-the-art technology and a story you’ll never forget. Disney’s musical The Hunchback of Notre-Dame becomes the autumn’s staggering adventure at the Gothenburg Opera.


n a medieval Paris, the fate of some people is crossed and their lives are changed forever. – The badly treated Quasimodo meets Esmeralda, who is an outcast because of ethnicity, and together they are forced to fight for a human world. This is an intense music experience, “says Stephen Langridge, artistic director Opera / Drama at GöteborgOperan.



The good-hearted, humpbacked Quasimodo, The Hunchback of Notre-Dame is played by Martin Redhe Nord. Esmeralda is made by Marsha Songcome, educated in Gothenburg, but with London’s West End as the latest workplace. Joa Helgesson, who played the title role of The Phantom of the Opera for sold-out houses this season, plays Quasimodo’s wicked guardian Claude Frollo. The musical is based on Disney’s cartoon film The Hunchback of Notre-Dame from 1996 and created by Oscar-winning Alan Menken, composer of Disney’s Aladdin, The Little Mer-

maid and the Beauty and Beast, and the Text writer Stephen Schwartz. The high-tech scenography gives the closest cinematic feeling of being in the Notre-Dame Cathedral and on the cobbled streets surrounding it. There is also the opportunity, as an audience, to sit on stage. In Denmark, the musical became a great success and was named “Best Musical”. Premiere at the Gothenburg Opera on september 22.

See Sweden – go with Inlandsbanan Trains usually stop in the middle of big cities where the buzz is at the highest peak. But the Swedish Inlandsbanan let you get off in the middle off the real adventure. Boil coffee over an open fire, fish in wild streams, scout for wild moose’s or tent under the midnight sun. Welcome onboard!


nlandsbanan is 130 miles long and goes through Kristinehamn in the south and Gällivare in the north. It is a fantastic trip throughout Sweden’s inner countryside, where the lakes are glittering, the streams are shining and proud pines and exotic animals are a big part of the experience. Sverigemagasinet meets with Eva Palmgren, manager for Destination Inlandsbanan, for a talk about this century-old national treasure. For many, travellers mean to discover other countries. One strives to come as far away from home as possible to get new experiences. But just might more people should stay in Sweden and book a trip with Inlandsbanan? - Absolutely, says Eva. You get to see a fantastic part of Sweden at the same time as you travel in a comfortable way. There are calmness, serenity, magical views, fresh air and the midnight sun. You can participate in one of the many festivals that yearly are arranged after the railroad tracks and you can take part in the rich culture and history the Samerna have. If you want you can also jump on one of the buses that goes deeper into the Swedish mountains. You can also relax and enjoy the scenery that

the train goes by, which is accompanied by the sound from the railroad. -During the trip does the train pass through the Arctic Circle. Which for many people is a dream that comes true. Says Eva Palmgren, and continues: - There’s also a nice coffee shop on-board, but a big part of the pleasure of traveling by Inlandsbanan is to stay and experience the local area. Eat local food, meet the locals and get a close-up of Norrland. You can eat the local food, meet the local population and really get a feel for the real Norrland. You can choose to stay overnight at a variety places during your trip and jump on the next train the day after, depending on how you want to plan your vacation. You can choose to camp under the open night sky, or if that’s not you, you can choose a 4-star hotel. Many people decide to stay to watch local art or go to a museum. Other looks forward to going fishing in the Norrlands älv (streams) or takes a stroll in the dense forest to experience the wildlife in first-hand experience. It’s so much to discover along the railroad tracks. There must also be a special feeling of traveling on a single-track railway, almost like train journeys in the past. - Absolutely! Inlandsbanan manages the railways exclusive, we do not have much other traffic to take into account as we are the only

company in the country that drives trains, manages the railways while arranging travel. It gives us unique possibilities to plan the trips according to the passenger’s requests. We can also offer extraordinary flexibility, which contributes to the feeling that travelling with Inlandsbanan is something remarkable. -You can say, in this case, that the journey is the goal and the destination comes in second place. We are in so many ways, the opposite of the transporter that travels quickly from point a to point b. -We do naturally also runs according to a timetable, but it often happens that the driver has to stop because of there are reindeers on the tracks. When that happens, we have to wait until they decide to move themselves, and that can take a while. But it’s something that contributes to the charm of travelling by us. -Most of our passengers want to see wild animals and birds. We have seen moose, wolf and bear. And a lot of bird of prey. How does the future look for Inlandsbanan? Our booked travels went up with 20% last summer, so we have high hopes for the same increase this year. There is a rising interest to discover Sweden, and we, of course, think that’s very fun! Says Eva Palmgren as an ending statement. TEXT: Tony Manieri SVERIGEMAGASINET

Culture history

Alfred Nobel’s Björkborn How did Alfred Nobel actually come to Karlskoga? And why does Alfred Nobel’s Björkborn play such an important role in the Nobel Prize? Did you know that it was very close that the price not come about?


lfred Nobel is mainly remembered as the father of the dynamite and as creator of the world’s most prestigious award - the Nobel Prize. Alfred was a multifaceted innovator and one world citizen with companies throughout the world. In the 1870s he settled in Paris, which became his permanent residence between his many journeys. After conflicts with the French state, Nobel moved to San Remo in Italy, where he test shoot with cannons straight into the Mediterranean, which was not appreciated by the people in the neighbourhood. Alfred therefore searched for a place where he could both experiment with the cannons and test shoot without any problems and found the solution in



Karlskoga where he bought AB Bofors-Goldspång in 1894. Björkborn mansion followed in the purchase, and this became his last Swedish home when he died 1896. The place plays an important role in the amazing history of how the Nobel Prize instituted. When Alfred’s famous testament opened, Karlskoga and Björkborn came in focus. Complicated legal negotiations were required to determine where he had his permanent residence. was it in Paris where he had left his magnificent apartment? Or maybe in San Remo there he owned a big private villa? Should the testimony be dealt with under French law, it would probably have been rejected for formal reasons and the entire legacy had gone to Nobel’s relatives. Due to his three Russian Orlov stallions in the stable at Björkborn, the courts agreed that he had his residence in Karlskoga. Now it was pos-

sible to perform Alfred Nobel’s last will and the first Nobel Prize was awarded in 1901. At Alfred Nobel Björkborn you can see Alfred’s last Swedish home, admire his personal things and his library. In the laboratory there are a lot of original equipment left, as well as exhibitions about his business and inventions. The museum offers guided tours all year round, with regular tours from June through August. If you are hungry there is a café that serves light lunches and coffee. Alfred Nobel Björkborn is a perfect getaway for those who want to enjoy the exciting story of Alfred Nobel in a beautiful cultural environment. Text: Anna Ekberg Photo: Alfred Nobel’s Björkborn


Abstract Presence

Hertha Hillfon’s early work meets Bengt Berglund. 2 June – 23 September. Meet the pioneeer ceramist and sculptress Hertha Hillfon, who was first recognised in 1958 for her playful and abstract clay craft. Her first commissioned work – the magnificent sculpture Vindbröte – was made for the inauguration of the hotel Portalen in Jönköping, in 1963. When the hotel was renovated in the 80’s, the sculpture was stored in a cellar and forgotten. It is now exhibited for the very first time as part of the exhibition at Skeppsholmen in Stockholm. The Curator Marika Bogren allows a representative selection of Hertha Hillfon’s abstract work from 1958 until the late 60’s meet craft of the contemporary ceramist Bengt Berglund. Both of them challenged the strict modernist ideals as trail blazers, using clay as their material. Both Hillfon and Berglund were part of The liberation of Form – Formens frigörelse.

Open: Wednesday – Sunday from 12 to 16. Address: Svensksundsvägen 21, Skeppsholmen, tel +46 (0)76- 10 33 51, www. herthahillfonskeppsholmen.se

VASA MUSEUM Vasamuseet is one of Sweden’s most visited tourist attractions with just over one million visitors each year. For the Stockholmmen themselves, the museum may not be superexotic, but in some way it’s hard to get tired of the beautiful ship that fell almost 400 years ago. In addition to the ship, the museum has a solid collection of over 40,000 items ranging from skeletons to letters and cannons. The Vasaship has been shown to the public since 1961 when the provisional museum Wasa Shipyard opened to the public. www.vasamuseet.se

Broby Farm


n the south countryside, between Västerås and Enköping lies this exciting place. At first sight it looks like any old farmhouse, but the old grain magazine from the late 19th century has a lot more to say. Short stairs lead up to the upper floor, where grain was kept back in the day. But now, when you get up there, you’ll see a beautiful crystal chandelier and the walls are filled with wonderful and exciting art - the grain magazine is tranformed to a Gallery! Also, you can call it a decor store, with a mix of a little crazy, unique, modern, vintage and antique - a little sprawling but charming! In the chicken farm there is currently a flea-

– a hidden gem in the Sweden countryside market, (also possible to rent for someone who wants it a week for their business.) You can even pick up some paint, pencils and canvas to create some art of your own! And why not, its a rural charming place for relaxing yoga, or use this soulplace of the domaine to read the books you promised yourself ? On Broby Farms ideas come on constantly and it’s exciting to see where it lands. In the café you can ask for more specifics. Broby Farm can be found at www.brobygard.se or on the face-book page Broby farm vintage and interior.

Vindelälven – powerful and mythical

By bike, horse or in a rubberboat along an untouched river. There are as many ways to experience Västerbotten as there are contrasts in the landscape. Only you set the limits.


or those who want to stay a little closer to the ground level, there are other ways to experience the nature of Västerbotten. After 2000 miles, the adventure journalist Peter Potterfield, commissioned by the National Geographic magazine appointed Kungsleden as the world’s best hiking trail in 2015. The stretch is more than 400 miles long and the trail is fully expanded with cottages, from Abisko in the north to Hemavan in the south. The distance of eight miles between Hemavan and Ammarnäs takes about five days to go, says the guide Johan of Ekenstam, who thinks that hiking suits everyone. - It’s just a matter of finding the right terrain and the right length of the trip. Many want to go to Kungsleden, and it’s a good beginner race, he says. If you want to raise the pace slightly, you can rent a mountain bike or road bike. During spring, summer and autumn is Västerbotten a great place for cycling, from the action-packed leaders, the mountains make up the fertile pine forests and the steep joints along the rivers. - It’s speed and calm, city and country, forest and mountain, light and darkness – we have eve-



rything in Västerbotten. And it is the contrasts that makes it so amazing, says Annika Sandström, regional manager at Visit Västerbotten. Annika explains that Västerbotten yet is a pretty undiscovered pearl, with honeycomb that you really can have for yourself. Everything from sandy beaches and freshwater lakes, to a dip among the natural pools in the vicinity, is found along the Västerbottens coastline. One of them is Ruttjebäcken in Hemavan Tärnaby, where you can swim in crystal clear water, natural pools and waterfalls - which have been absorbed by streams since the ice age. But the historic, Västerbottens waters offer more than just relaxation. The wild rivers and untouched rapids are perfect places for kayaking and rafting. The 50-mile Vindelälven, has a drop meter up to ten meters. Vindelälven is classified as one of Sweden’s best water for sewage. At the same time, it is a biosphere reserve identified by UNESCO, the river thus acts as a model area for sustainable development and conservation of the landscape. - We think it will be an added value to our experiences when we work in a sustainable way, says Annika. We work actively with sustainability on several levels. The goal is to be perceived as the most sustainable, regional destination in Sweden. It is natural for us to work with sustainability. We think it is important for the

guests who come here, but also for those who live here. This is a way to live for us, says Annika Sandström. The sustainability trend has also ripped off in the restaurant industry. Several gatekeepers in Umeå testify that the enthusiasm, both among guests and restaurateurs, for the local, genuine and Norwegian is higher than ever. - We have a rich commodity cavity around us, which in itself gives increased awareness. People have wild in the freezer at home, berries picked around the knot and mushrooms from the latest mountain reindeer. They want to know where the food they stop themselves comes from simply, says the Jörgen Engdahl at Hunger & Törst in Umeå. Even further north, the increased demand for local commodities is noticeable. Burträsk Market Hall opened in 2014 and has become a popular retreat. 90 percent of their goods come from the area, and vary with the season. The mushrooms are picked in the forrest in Burträsk, the bread is baked in Kåsböle and the smoked ham is a product from Järvtjärns. The closer the better, as they say. - Interest for good and locally produced raw materials is growing all the time, says Karin Wiksten, who was one of the initiators of the foodhall.

A richer experience Leave the noice and come to Västerbotten this summer. Here you can wander between high mountain tops, cycle in unspoiled wilderness, fish in bottomless lakes, ride along beautiful forest paths, enjoy local delicacies and take part of the Sami culture.

Culture History

Löfstabruk, Sveriges mäktigaste bruk. Foto: Lars-Erik Berglund

The Wallon settlements in Uppland – the cradle of Sweden’s welth In northern Uppland there is a phenomenon that has been of great importance to the prosperity of Sweden as a whole: Upplands Wallon settlements. Here you will find authentic working environments, with beautiful mansions, gardens and industrial buildings. Welcome to a piece of unique industrial and cultural history, with the roots from Belgium Wallonia.


he Dutch financier Louis De Geer founded many ironwork villages in Northern Uppland. One of the reasons were the rich availability of ore from Dannemora mine. De Geer imported labour and competence from Wallonia in Belgium, which resulted in better iron quality, and the Wallon settlements were due to this world leader in high quality iron production. The biggest settlements were Lövstabruk, Österbybruk, Forsmark and Gimo. About 1000 men with families from Wallonia immigrated to Uppland between 1615 and 1655. Many Swedes still proudly say they have wallon blood in the veins from their ancestors. Productions in the wallon settlements was



dropped in late 18th or early in 19th century. Today many of the wallon settlements are instead living cultural environments with art, history, theatre and music experiences. Several also have fantastic food, and some offer overnight stay. ÖSTERBYBRUK

Here was the world-famous rod iron of Dannemora manufactured. Today it is the world’s only functioning wallon forge and in the area there is a complete 1700:th society. LÖVSTABRUK

Once upon a time, the world’s largest iron industry, today it is one of Sweden’s bestpreserved 1700th communities. Lövstabruks manor is a wonderful 17th century mansion with lounges, dining room, library and a kitchen filled with copper vessels.


Sweden’s first gustavian mansion. Gimo is an old farm that in 2015 celebrated that it was 400 years since the start of ironworks. Today there are hotels with rooms and suites, both in the big main building and in several neighbouring buildings as well as gourmet restaurant and spa. SKEBO BRUK

An iron mill founded in the 17th century. Located in the modern town of Skebobruk. At the mill, barbed iron was manufactured. The iron for production was taken from the Edsbro blast furnace, built in 1686, owned by Skebobruk. The ore came from Dannemora mill, among others mine. The iron then went on export. Today the wallon ironworks consists of the wallon’s medieval manor house and utility

Culture History Soot, smoke and noise characterized Strömsberg’s once upon a time, now it is a quiet oasis. Tämnaråns sparkling water binds together industrial buildings, manor houses, homes and agriculture with the iron. Among all wallon buildings, this is known as “the white ironworks”. With the well-preserved white buildings it gives a good picture and an idea of the old industrial greatness.

streets, where the workers of the mill lived. The operation was discontinued in 1924. ÖSTERBYBRUKS IRONWORKS

Purchased by Louis De Geer 1643, it had been in operation since the 15th century on Gustav Vasa’s time, but in the 17th century, it gained a boost when skilled smiths from Vallonien were acquired to Sweden to work in the wallon industry. The factory passed from the 15th century production of war materials, to the 16th century’s production of barbed iron. Text: Mia Ulin

Scenic experiences by Toftasjöns seaside


oftastrand is a family owned property hotel and pastry shop ,which started in 1993. The business began in small scale with garden café, room rental and catering to for example weddings and party’s. From the beginning there were 9 rooms in the main building ,as well as 2 cottages right on the seafront. In 2014 the hotel was expanded with 12 double rooms, with its own terrace, and several with lake views. -We want to offer our guests a peaceful and quiet relaxing environment, where we work for great food, made of ingrediencies from the region. -All cooked and baked from scratch, says Inger Svensson. VILLA VIKS DINERS

When the neighboring house Villa Vik was for sale, came the possibility of expanding, and the majority of the restaurant business was moved to the beautifully located villa. CHRISTINAS NILSSON’S VILLA VIK

The branches are cracking when the horse’s skate, rolls forward on the gravel-road up towards the house. A woman rises, goes up the stairs and slowly opens the heavy oak doors of Villa Vik. The woman is our greatest opera singer ever, and it is here she retires after her amazing career. Christina Nilsson or Countess Casa de Miranda, as she was also called, was the poor girl from Snugge who conquered the world with her talented voice. Now, a hundred years later, the family welcomes you to Villa Vik´s Dining Rooms, which they have carefully renovated and restored to a top-class restaurant and conference facility at scenic Toftasjön.

Tasty and beautiful One of Scandinavia’s oldest guesthouses dating back to the 13th century. Here you will have a genuine guesthouse experience.


argretetorp’s hostelry farm is located in the south of Hallandsåsen, in one of the most beautiful parts of Skåne. With sparkling streams outside the door and a stunning garden, as looks like a park has Margaretetorp offered hospitality and peace and quiet to its guests for hundreds of years. First as a gathering place for the plain farmers and since the beginning of the 20th century as a focal point for well-known writers. Today, guests come here to enjoy good food, to celebrate celebrations with loved ones, weddings or just to relax in the beautiful surroundings. There are also fantastic hiking trails around Hallandsåsen. Or why not bring the bike, pack a nice picnic and explore the beautiful Bjäre Peninsula? The food is the heart of Margaretetorps business and they are famous for the first-class kitchen and the unique sandwich table, which is served for lunch almost every day of the year. Without tapping on the Skåne food tradi-



tion, they offer their guests savoury food from scratch on a modern and innovative way. With raw materials from local producers as widely as possible. Traditions warmly surround them, and celebrations are great with them, the goose season in November is very popular and about 7000 Christmas tables are served in December. At Margaretetorp the guests live well in hotel rooms and they can jump in a whirlpool outside With opportunity to enjoy a great view of the river and the nature before dinner. It is clear that the guests are very important at Margretetorps Gästgifvaregård, which shows a family atmosphere combined with the good food and service. During the year, guests are offered music nights, exhibitions, winemaker’s dinner, Midsummer celebrations and more at the guesthouse. Here it is as tasty as beautiful!

The fortress from the cold war Experience the adventure at the Siknäsfort, a top-secret fortress from the time of the cold war. Situated at 60 meters above sea level, overlooking the astounding Töre fjord.





he fortress of Siknäs is nuclear proof and situated only a few kilometres from the northernmost point of the Baltic Sea. When you arrive at the Siknäsfort you will be met by guides who will take you through a tunnel, designed to deflect shock waves from the entrance of the fort. Blasted into the mountain you will find four floors to be explored. There, among the preserved installations, you will find the exhibitions of the museum which in an illustratory

and interesting way will give you an understanding of the Siknäs fortress – the northern lock during the cold war. THE SUMMER OF 1987

Somebody reports a frogman coming up from the calm water. Out of several hundreds observations are 15 reliable, and the conclusion is that a submarine has entered the inlet, declares the intelligence officer of Kalix defence area. Helicopters are dropping explosives and antisubmarine grenades to force the intruder to surface. What is the result? Did they find a submarine? The mini submarine Spiggen II is

now placed in Töre harbour as a memory of the dramatic weeks. TÖRE HARBOUR

Visit Töre harbour which has played an important role of the military history in the area. You can have a look at the Swedish mini-submarine Spiggen II and from the autumn 2018 a gun tower masked as a summer cottage. You can also get a certificate as evidence for your visit at the northernmost point of the Baltic Sea.


The nuclear proof fortress of Siknäs in Töre is situated a few kilometres from the northernmost point of the Baltic sea. VISITING TIMES

During the summer the fort is open for everyone. Groups are welcome all year.




Above: Illustration of the building. Below left: there is a lot to see and experience in Mariestad. Visiting the guest harbour in Mariestad and settling down with a locally produced ice cream is one of the highlights. To the right: Andreas and Georg Häselbarth visit the place of Dinners in Mariestad.

Dinners expands and opens in Mariestad Dinners establish in Mariestad and plans for a new kind of meeting point with several activities in the same local area. The location is strategically located at the southern entrance to the city centre and it is easy to stay on the way to or from Mariestad.


inners have decided to settle at Sydport Mariestad at the strategic junction E20 and highway 26 in Mariestad. Besides that, the company has operations in four locations in Sweden; Enköping, Arboga, Ödeshög and Gävlebro. - We are establishing ourselves in more locations around Sweden, starting in Mariestad,” says Andreas Häselbarth, CEO of Dinners. Dinners work with leading companies around Europe, embracing the latest trends from those countries that have extensive experience in developing the tourism industry. It will be a new kind of meeting point with more activities in the same room. In addition to the restaurant, there will be a modern coffeeshop with a Deli shop, a solarium shop and a modern low-cost hotel and a gas



station. The concept also includes the installation of charging posts, which is part of tomorrow’s new service station. It happens a lot at Mariestad’s southern entrance, Sydport says the municipality’s business executive Mats Widhage. In addition to well-known fast food chains, there is one of Sweden’s five first hydrogen gas tank stations. In addition to the gas station, a solar cell park has been built. The solar energy generated will be used to produce hydrogen for refueling fuel cell cars and store solar energy. Mariestad becomes the first in the world with this unique solution. MARIESTAD - THE TOURIST CITY

Mariestad is the small town that battles in nature experiences and quality of life. Sweden’s blue band Götakanal meets northern Europe’s largest lake Vänern here - and beyond the 14mile coast, the archipelago islands count in tens

of thousands. Staying in ​​Mariestad is to pause life at its best. Here you stroll around the hilly cobbled streets of the Old Town, enjoy localmade ice cream and participate in the hilarious hamlet life. Or relax with a quality beer from one of the neighbourhood’s microbreweries. Mariestad’s beer tradition continues today in a row of shady brews in the town’s restaurants. With the magnificent nature in front of the feet, the area is ideal for outdoor activities both on foot and by boat, and for the active one expects a variety of experiences to choose from. Here you will find good paddling and fishing waters, adventurous hiking trails and paths that provide experiences beyond the usual - not least along the Götakanal. Text: Redaktionen Photo: Tuana
