From resistance to waffles - Culture tour nr. 3

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. 3 takes you to through Dals-Ed and Nössemark.


From resistance to waffles

Shiny mudguards reflect the light at the motorcycle museum in Ed, a region shaped by its location close to the Norwegian border. Landmarks include Parsetjärn fortifications, dating from World War II, and the trails through Tresticklan Nationalpark along which young people migrated to Norway to seek work during the hard times of the 19th century. As did Märta-Stina Godtman, who brought knowledge
of how to make straw hats back home to Ärtemark and set up a successful business exporting 60,000 hats each year around the world. With luck you will be in time for a themed dining event at Vita Huset by Lake Stora Le.

In our digital map, you will find map positions and directions to all the places to visit on the tour.
