Sundborn Church

Sundborns Kyrka The Church rises beautifully beside the shore of lake Toftan. There has been a church in Sundborn since the 17th century, but the present wooden church was built in 1755 and the pulpit is from the late 19th century. Carl Larsson redecorated the whole church in 1905. Prominent places are occupied by his Altar Angels, John the baptist, wall decorations in the shape of pine twigs and an abundance of flower garlands and other paintings.

There is a popular bathing place beyond the Church, and a beautiful path along the shore.

Here you can also find the Carl Larsson family grave.

Open daily 10.00-18.00.

Bondes Cottage

Sundborns Hembygdsförening (The Sundborn Heritage and Preservation Society) manages this cottage situated in the middle of what is called the Church Village of Sundborn.

The cottage was given its name after the family who occupied it since the 17th century. When Sofia Bonde died in 1935, she left it to her nephew Nils Sahlström and on his death in 1959 the cottage was donated to the Municipality of Sundborn. Since 1974 the cottage is used by Sundborns Hembygdsförening, and all inventories are cataloged by the Cultural Heritage in Falun.

The traditonal storage building opposite the main cottage is one of the oldest buildings in Sundborn and was built in the 17th century. The main house was built in 1750 and consisted of two rooms and one kitchen. In 1875, six layers of logs were added and the cottage was given a second floor.

The cottage is open for various events.

Korså Bruk

Korså bruksmiljöThe historical Works in Korsån are available for visits all year round and lies approximately 24 km straight east of Sundborn, via Karlsbyheden and Finngärdets Fäbodar.

As early as in 1748 a water driven saw-mill was built in Korsån. The saw-mill was in use until as late as 1925, but only the remains of two floodgates exist today. Between 1840 and 1930 a Lancastershire forge and five water driven hammers, which still can be seen, were in operation.

The peaceful old churchyard west of Korsån beside the lake Lilla Logärden is well worth a visit. There is a jetty suitable for disabled or for those who would like to spend some time fishing. A fishing permit is needed, and can be purchased on site or in Korsån.

By the lake Hinsen in Korsån there is a public bathing place.
