Visit Gränsfors

Gränsfors Bruk is currently closed to visitors. This applies to all parts of our company with the exception of the course activities which are going as previously planned. For questions regarding courses, please email us at or read more about our Courses here.

We are working full time renovating our store and museum, and hope to be able to welcome visitors again this summer.

In some places, history and tradition converge with modern times in a completely natural way. One such place is Gränsfors.

Firmly established along a meandering river, Gränsfors is situated in the north of Hälsingland. Just a short detour off the busy E4 motorway, you will find yourself in a world you thought no longer existed.


A vibrant culture of craft and industry has thrived here for hundreds of years. Mills, stove-builders, breweries, sawmills, forges and much more have been in operation along the river at one time or another.

Two of these fine craft-based industries still remain in full operation: Gränsfors Bruk makes its quality axes and Gränsfors Blomkruksfabrik turns out superb flowerpots.

Gränsfors is a living place above all, a place where history informs the modern pulse of life.
