Varmly welcome to Saxå Bruk!
This unique performance will take place the following wednesday to saturdays : July 3 and August 10, 2019.
Buy a ticket to a performance in three acts featuring the legendary Bergslagen in the eastern part of Värmland, where poetry and fairy-tale play hide-and-seek with life.
The first act offers a coffee party in Gårdskapellet with the opportunity of a walk among century-old elms or the pleasure of a swim in lake Saxen or why not drop in to have a look at the pleasant ceramics exhibition in the so called Ernsthuset.
In act two a four course historical dinner with a touch of empire will be served while act three invites you to come to summer peace in the historical designed chambers of Saxå Bruk and the next morning concluding with breakfast in Gårdskapellet.

Experience Saxå Bruk - my paradise!
Saxå Bruk (‘bruk’ means ‘iron works’) is the oldest in the county of Värmland. They date back to 1540, and came into my custody in 1984. Saxå Bruk is beautifully situated by lake Saxen, between the village of Grythyttan and the small town of Filipstad.
The manor house with its guest wings and small lake-side little garden folly used for alfresco dining are all meticulously restored to former glory, while renowned interior designer Ernst Kirchsteiger has transformed the old lakeside storehouse into a snug hide away. The buildings are situated in extensive parkland bordering the green of Saxå Golf Club, arguably the most beautiful 18-hole golf course in Sweden.
I have decided to open up this historically important private property for visitors, and now have the pleasure to welcome You to stay in one of my historic guestrooms, all of which are individually and charmingly decorated with antiques and complying with modern hotel standard.
The Manor Restaurant and Old Chapel Café are open from midsummer to mid August every year. During the rest of the year, we welcome private groups and parties for meals and accommodation. Self-service suites (also hotel standard) can be booked from 1 May to 30 September.
Welcome to my paradise!
