In Sunne, the culture and storytelling tradition is strong.
Here lived and worked the author and nobel laureate Selma Lagerlöf. Her childhood home Mårbacka is now a memorial farm that is a must-visit when you are in Sunne. Rottneros Park was Ekeby in Selma Lagerlöf's story Gösta Berling's saga. Today the park is a beautiful sculpture and flower park. The park is also the perfect destination for families with children! For those interested in theatre, summer theatre is offered in Berättarladan, värmland's largest barn, converted into a theatre stage. It is located next to Lake Fryken and Rottneros Park just south of Sunne.
The home of author and Nobel Laureate Selma Lagerlöf is open for viewing. By taking part in a guided tour of the house, you get an exciting insight into Selma Lagerlöf's life and works. You can also walk in the beautiful garden or relax with a cup of coffee and good homemade bread in the café. Mårbacka is open daily from June to the end of August, but also at selected times for the rest of the year.
Rottneros Park is Ekeby in Selma Lagerlöf's Gösta Berlings Saga. Here you can go an ipod guide and get even more out of your park visit. Rottneros Park is not just an oxygen-saturated flower – and sculpture park filled with scents. There is also a lot of fun for children up to about 12 years old. I think the coolest thing is THE SHIP in the playground. There are also lots of other play attractions. You can also take a ride on the pirate raft or why not drive on the car track.
