Back to Sweden


This parish dates back to early 1100s. It lies on the southerly end of the peninsula Värmlandsnäs and also includes a number of small islands in lake Vänern. Consisting of some woodland, most of the parish land area is farmland belonging to large estates.

Rosenberg reports a population of 704 (about 1882) but by year 2000 only 137 people lived there. This is typical for the entire peninsula, once busy farmland, mechanization in the 1900s displaced most of the workers.
