Forsviks Bruk

Forsvik’s Bruk is an industrial heritage site and in many ways a remarkable and beautiful place to visit. It is here you find part of Sweden’s industrial cradle where industrial activities have been carried out for over 600 years.

In this award winning industrial environment you will discover unique buildings, fascinating exhibitions.
We are trying to make good use of as many of our buildings as we possibly can.

Take a break and visit Kafé Ada in the Old Miller’s Cottage for a cup of tea or coffee with freshly baked bread and don’t forget to pay the Museum shop a visit before you leave us. We have a selection of high-quality souvenirs, everything from present day treats to nostalgic gifts.
