von Echstedtska gården

A rococo dream over 250 years old, one of the most remarkable of Värmland's still preserved older estate.
Rustic elegance, symmetry and simplicity, biblical scenes and solemn austerity meet flowering painting and curvy rococo. von Echstedtska gården is perhaps the most remarkable of Värmland's still preserved older estate. To the exterior is a strict Carolinian mansion, built 1762-64, but in the interiors flourishes rococo. The estate also has the country's most beautiful outdoor garden with ceiling paintings from the 18th century and a garden with magical herbs and 25 apple varieties from the region Värmland. Here you really enjoy the tranquility, the garden and the beautiful surroundings. Art gallery and cafe.
In the café there are both sandwiches and pastry and coffee menu, try a Mamsell or Christina Catharina. Summer open from late May to mid-August. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram!
