Products from Klässbol are used by the royal family, by Swedish embassies around the world, and by the hotels that accommodate the Nobel ceremony visitors. At Rottneros the first thing you will notice is that the air is invigorating and filled with fragrance. The beauty of hundreds of statues and of flowers and trees is overpowering. In addition, Selma Lagerlöf’s famous novel ‘The Story of Gösta Berling’ comes to life here. The ‘Ekeby’ of her book is synonymous with Rottneros Manor and its park.
