Grythyttan is a town in Hällefors municipality, Västmanland, Sweden.

Get in[edit]

The town has a train station and a bus stop.

The drive from Stockholm is straightforward and takes around three hours.

Get around[edit]

The town itself is walkable. It is also a hub of canoe routes.

See[edit][add listing]

The historical town centre. The slate quarry. Måltidens hus, a gastronomic academy housed in what was Sweden's pavilion at the '94 World's Fair.

And the forests and lakes of course.

Do[edit][add listing]

Take a walk around the lake, head to the swimming area marked on the tourist information office's map and then pick a path through pine and birch forest along side the lake. Swimming in the lake is also on the cards, but far too cold on the damp early autumn morning I was there. Water is crystal and bottom sandy however, so on a sunnier day it might be just the ticket.

Buy[edit][add listing]

Måltidens hus and the nearby Grythytte Qwarn (a watermill museum) offer high-end Swedish food products and crafts. Nearby villages host low-cost auctions and flea markets during the summer.

Eat[edit][add listing]

Grythyttans gästgivaregård, [1] is a nationally famous inn with great food and furnishing. Lunches are reasonable in price, dinners are more costly, but the height of Swedish cuisine.

Drink[edit][add listing]

Sleep[edit][add listing]

The inn noted above can put you up very comfotably, at a price.

There was what seems to be a rather informal campsite by the one of the lakes if that's more your thing.

Get out[edit]

Loka Brunn is a spa with a swimming park. Public opening times are limited, though.
