Pershyttan is one of Sweden’s most well-preserved mining villages. The area is a cultural heritage park where you can find out what it was like when the foundry and mines were in use. Most of it looks exactly as it did up until the last working day. The foundry is one of Sweden’s best preserved charcoal foundries, and the whole area, with its mine pits, waterwheel, long wooden driveshaft and charcoal storage building, is well worth discovering. You can explore Pershyttan on your own year-round. The visitor centre, which is always open, relates ore mining history in an educational way. There also are hiking trails with information signs to help you discover the entire cultural heritage park.
