See the works of a master at the Zorn Museum
As an artist, Zorn was capable of anything, whatever the technique. In the museum you will find famous oil paintings and watercolours such as Vallkulla and Törnsnåret, virtuoso wood sculptures such as Mona och Mormor, but also other works in wood and silver, drawings and etchings. Zorn’s fabulous water studies fill a whole wall in the exhibition, while his elegant oil sketches take up another wall. At the Zorn Museum you can find your own favourite among his famous and lesser-known works. Make sure you visit the Zorn House, the Zorn couple’s home, which is preserved as it stood in the early 1900s. It has been decorated in an original style and is of course one of the most famous artist’s homes in the country.

WINTER FEST, WORLD-CLASS CHAMBER MUSIC!
For four days in February, various concert venues will resound with music in a glistening wintry Dalarna. People will be travelling from all around to experience the festival Vinterfest described by BBC Music Magazine as “one of the most enjoyable festivals in Europe”, and which Frankfurter Allgemeine has compared to Gidon Kremer’s venerable Lockenhaus Festival. A festival focused on small scale, relaxation and intimacy. A true music festival where the Ovansiljan area north of Lake Siljan plays host to world-class artists. That the festival is located in the middle of the beautiful Dalarna landscape is an added bonus which is appreciated by Swedish and foreign visitors alike. The prospect of a pleasant winter holiday alongside first-class music performances is an added attraction.
