Hallwyl House revisited

House tour at an intact townhouse of the late Victorian period


Hallwyl House represents the 1890s trend of the pure and the genuine as well as ideas opposed to the Arts & Crafts movement. Carefully composed by Walter and Wilhelmina von Hallwyl, the house itself can be described as an artwork, distinguished by exquisite craftsmanship and filled with exquisite collections of art, decorative arts and a unique collection of clothes.

Like at the theatre, Hallwyl house boasts a front stage and a back stage; an open space for entertaining and a closed one for private use. On this tour you will experience both.

Annika Williams and Gösta Sandell, Curators
The Royal Armory and Skokloster Castle with the Hallwyl museum.
