Bertil Larsson’s Garden
In central Rostock there is a really outstanding private garden. Bertil has collected thousands of different plants. High and low there is hardly a spot to place your foot.

“Tant Vanjas textilmuseum”
Opposite my studio there is a cosy little textile museum. Kerstin Lindeberg has for many years collected textiles, tools and many other things connected to the production of old textiles. She has named the museum after her mother in law “Vanja” and the aim is to gather together old knowledge and skills which are about to be forgotten and to pass them on to the new generation. If you are interested, you can try carding, spinning, weaving, lacemaking, knitting or something else that has to do with the old techniques.

Hiking routes and swimming
Around Dals Rostock there are several paths and forest walks to choose from. Many of them start from the “OK stugan” the local orienteering clubs headquarters.
Karl the Xll’s way is a hiking route which runs across Kroppefjäll between Dals Rostock and Järbo.
Doctor Saedén’s Runda dating from the time of the Sanatorium is also available to visitors and Kroppefjäll’s walking group arrange local walks every Thursday evening in the summer. There is the possibility of local guiding available!
For those who want to go for a swim there are many different lakes and tarns near by.
A little way outside Dals Rostock next to Gunnarsnäs Church is Ekholmen’s Säteri. The big house dates from 1799 and is completely roofed in slate. The walls are also clad in the local slate. Inside there are three well preserved rooms that Karl the XlV Johan stayed in. In the courtyard is a smaller house dated from 1785 which is today a small interior design shop and cafe’.
