Manor history

Ulfshyttan Manor is located south of Borlänge, in the heart of the iron-producing region of Bergslagen. A foundry was established in the beginning of the 17th century.

The blast-fumance, the ruins of which can be seen at Ulfshyttan, was built at the end of the 18th century.

The works manager and iron master Gerhard Arfwedson and his wife Baroness Caroline Arfwedson-de Geer, lived in the manor house with their family. Parties and banquets succeeded each other in their large, beautiful home, and many prominent persons visited Ulfshyttan in those days.

As Crown Prince, HRH Gustav VI Adolf and his wife, Crown Princess Margareta, were guests at the manor. On this occasion Nobel Laureate Selma Lagerlöf, who was the Baronesses personal friend, sat in the tower room telling stories to the Royal guests.

Other authors and artists such as Carl Larsson and Anders Zorn also stayed here.

Nowadays anyone can come here to stay and enjoy the atmosphere of the manor and the peace and beauty of the surrounding countryside.
