Experience hotel

At the moment we are creating a experience hotel with Älvdalens history as a basis. Here you will take part of the history of Hagström who in 1925 started the factory with the production of accordions in Älvdalen and later exported guitars worldwide. World artists such as Elvis, Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix and David Bowie have all played on Hagström guitars.

Marvel at Porfyrverken, that were here 150 years ago, which includes the sarcophagus, as King Karl XIV Johan rests, were manufactured. Learn about the terrifying witch trial that started here in the village of Åsen in the late 1300’s and visit the places where witches were burned at the stake.

Get to know the dance band Larz-Kristerz and Princess Sofia’s home village. Take the opportunity to learn some sentences in Elfdalian, our own language. Perhaps you’ll encounter together with Stefan Nykvist in our restaurant. Or Lena Willemark who also visits her home now and then. 

The story of us

Already in 1912 was the first hotel here. A white wooden building with turrets and towers. 1950 also there was a bank in the same building. 1986 swedish company Skanska built on behalf of the municipality of Älvdalen a new hotel with 52 rooms and a restaurant. It was operated by Älvdalens municipality to the mid-1990s when it was bought by Inger and Anders Lundqvist. They ran the hotel on until 2012. The hotel was then sold to the families Risander and Zetterman. After three years, the family bought Risander out and in the current situation the hotel is owned by the families Berglund and Zetterman.
