2 days of history and art

Åkersberga, Österåker

A history and art tour including Wira bruk - a smithy where rapiers and swords for Swedish warrior kings were forged, the archipelago art museum Östra Salt and the underground fortress Siaröfortet, built to defend Stockholm during WW1. The past comes alive through the enthusiastic guides that lead you through the history of art and war.

All three sights are open Tuesday - Sunday during summer so you can be flexible and visit them in an order that suits you. Wira bruk have a guided tour each Wednesday and Sunday at 1 PM. Siaröfortet arranges guided tours everyday. 

 The art museum Östra Salt is located on the island Ljusterö, Siaröfortet is located on the island Kyrkogårdsön (boat transfer from Östanå dock) and you find Wira bruk in the village Wira on the mainland approximately 2 kilometers from Östanå. We recommend that you do this tour in two days including one overnight stay. Preferably one visits both Östra Salt and Wira bruk one day and have time to explore Siaröfortet the next.

Where to stay? Siaröfortet has a cozy hostel (www.siarofortet.se) and Ljusterö offers plenty of accommodations. For example Villa Sjövik, furnished apartments (www.villasjovik.com), Cabins let by Ljusterö Skärgårdsstugor (www.bokaskargardsstugor.se) and the resort Nässlingen offers rooms and cottages for rent (www.nasslingen.se). Nässlingen is located on an island with the same name.
