Innovative art, traditional handicrafts, modern design, medieval church paintings, the finest cultivated plants and the wingbeats of history. We have put together six suggested day tours for those who want to explore the art and culture of Dalsland. Tour nr. 1 takes you to through Mellerud and Brålanda.


From harp to klengås

Dals Rostock harks back to the spa resorts that the nobility visited to drink the spring water. Kerstin Ljungqvists Ateljé represents a lifetime dedicated to art, and Dr Saedéns Runda is a very special trail designed to soothe body and soul. The slate handicrafts at Ekholmens Gård are superb, and the medieval ruins at Dalaborg are a special experience.

Eat as much of the Dalsland specialty klengås as you want at Hamrane Bakstuga and enjoy the view from the ancient stronghold of Borekulle, dating from the early Iron Age.
