Here will you not only find beautiful nature, Yttra Berg is a place full of history. You will find plenty of traces of times long past and of the generations that have worked the land and formed the landscape. A small farm museum tells of life on the farm.
At Yttra Berg, you will encounter an old-fashioned landscape, with pruned trees, meadows, cultivation terraces and cow paths. This is an outing for the entire family. Choose a walk that is just long enough for you; you will be amazed by the beauty of the landscape. Let your children run around on the old farm yard and learn more in the museum. There are picnic places both at the car park and at the farm. WC facilities can be found at Aronsgården.
Museum at the Farm
Aronsgården, located in the middle of the reserve, dates back to the 17th century and is owned by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency. The farm house that stands there now is from 1818. The unpainted barn was moved to Yttra Berg from Sjöred in Abild in 1992. Here inside, there is a small museum with an exhibit on the nature and culture of the location and about the the farming tasks of the past. In a listening studio, you can hear stories from the region. The museum is also open, the lamps turn on automatically when you step inside.
Four Nature Paths
Here you can walk along four well-marked nature paths that vary in length from one to two-and-a-half kilometres. Along the way, you will learn about the natural value of the location, as well as its cultural history. You can find your way around with the help of the brochure available at the information board at the car park and in the farm museum.
The agricultural landscape is largely preserved from the period before the turn of the 19th century. It is both hilly and stony, which meant that generations of farmers had to adapt to the terrain. Virtually every possible surface was cultivated. The landscape is in fact one of the county’s (and country’s) most prolific with regard to ancient arable land. The Gällared rural culture society currently tends to the lands in a traditional manner. For example, a yearly hay-harvest festival is help with well-sharpened scythes and filled coffee baskets.
