Hike in Blomsholm and other nature trails
Blomsholm – Ancient relics of national interest
Blomsholm is one of Bohuslän’s finest cultural environments, rich in memories from the Stone Age to the Middle Ages. Among other things, there is Bohuslän’s largest judging ring and one of Sweden’s largest ship sentences in the area. There are also 7 burial fields from the Iron Age as well as the large pile Grönehög.
For almost 2,000 years, the Blomsholm ship has “sailed” across the meadows. The stone ship is one of the country’s largest shipwrecks, over 40 m long with 49 stones left. From the younger Iron Age, ie. 500-1050 AD The size and monumental location of the tomb shows that a significant person was buried here. In the 18th century, when Karl XII was on the war path to Norway, Blomsholm’s manor was used as a war hospital.
Statarlängan and Summer Café
In the statarlängan from 1899 there is the exhibition “Blomsholm – archaeological remains and Säteri”, these are exhibitions on Blomsholm’s history and the startling prehistoric remains on the estate’s property. Previously, four families lived in their apartment, each with one room and a kitchen. There are also some excavation finds to be seen in the statar length.

Grönehög are six piles of different sizes that originate from the migration period, 400 – 550 AD. The largest is 6.5 meters high and about 40 meters in diameter and is counted as Bohuslän’s largest burial mound. The area is located at the old E6, just south of Blomsholm at Värmlandsbro
