The Essential
It is well worth stopping in Bjursås to visit its local history museum (Dössbergets museum) in a delightful setting on Dössberget mountain. From here you have a spectacular view of the village church and the surrounding lakes and forests. The museum includes the house of the Dalarna painter Mats Stadig (Stadigstugan), its walls and ceilings decorated with some of his splendid compositions. The tools and materials he used are exhibited in the Dalarnas Museum in Falun.
