Rottneros Park is Ekeby in Selma Lagerlöf’s Gösta Berglings Saga. Take an iPod-guided tour and make the most of your park visit. Rottneros Park is not just an oxygen-rich flower and sculpture park filled with scents. It also has lots of fun things for kids up to the age of about 12. Coolest of them all is probably the SHIP on the playground. But you will also find other fun play attractions. For example, a ride on the pirate raft or driving a car on the car track.
Rottneros Park is open during summer.

BerättarLadan (the Storytelling Barn) is one of Sweden’s largest summer theatres. Västanå Theatre puts up productions here every summer from Midsummer to the beginning of September. Brilliant performances with inspiration from folk music, dance, and storytelling.
Berättarladan seats 500 people and welcomes about 25,000 visitors every year. Performances aside, Berättarladan is an attraction all in itself. Since 2009, this is the regional theatre of Värmland County and thus a county institution. Artistic Director and Theatre Director is Leif Stinnerbom.
As Västanå Theatre celebrates 50 years, they have chosen to create a sparkling cavalcade performance where Västanå Theatre meets Selma Lagerlöf. Scenes are taken from every one of their Lagerlöf productions to clearly convey their shared love for storytelling, music, dance, and theatre art. Throughout her life, Selma Lagerlöf took a great interest in the theatre, and as a prose writer, she focuses on creating scenes and tableaux, where the narrative is largely passed on through spoken lines.
