Welcome to the Walloon Iron works
The well preserved Walloon works of Roslagen tells a unique piece of industrial history. The Roslagen area with its abundant natural resources was the perfect place to establish the ironworks of the seventeenth century. The Walloons were recruited for their skills and craftsmanship and wrought iron from the Walloon works soon became a world-leading product. The Wallon works have today become unique tourist attractions. At Österbybruk you can take part in guided tours and ghost walks. You can also visit yearly events like the folk music festival Nyckelharpstämman, the theatre performance Jernets Fångar and the music and lights festival Eldfesten. The classical music festival Sommarnattens toner is performed every year at Skebobruk and in Berkinge you will find one of Sweden’s longest water slides.
