The gold treasure in Västerljung

The Tureholm treasure is a collection of gold objects from the 5th century AD that were found in Västerljung’s parish in 1774 by the farmer Jonas Nilsson. The treasure weighed about 12 kg and is one of the largest gold treasures found in Sweden!

Parts of the treasure can be found at Historiska museet in Stockholm.

A larger variant of the gold necklace can be found as decoration in the roundabout in Västerljung. It is made by students at Praktiska gymnasiet in Nykvarn. The teacher had to make his own machines and tools so that the students could shape and weld the parts together. The sculpture is 4.8 meters in diameter.

Pinterestladan - Sörmlands lyxigaste vindskydd?

Sörmlandsleden etapp 55 har berikats med ett lyxigt vindskydd. Kanske Sörmlandsledens lyxigaste? Här, i Västerljung strax utanför Trosa, har Lina Nydahl gjort i ordning ett av sina uthus för övernattning. Byggåret är 1901 och har från början hållit både höns och får, kanske även några kor, berättar Lina.

Ja, vindskydd med betoning på lyx. Det lilla faluröda huset med ockragula dörrar och fönster är förvisso inte uppvärmt eller isolerat, men här är inrett med en dubbelsäng bäddad med härliga textilier och en skrivhörna med förra ägarens (som var utrikeskorrespondent) skrivmaskin.

Här finns ljus att tända och massor att titta på, lisa för själen. Du kan låna spel, läsa böcker, vandra i skogen eller hyra SUP och bege dig ut på Hållsviken.

Matlagningen löser du på grillen och du får tillgång till badrum inne i Linas hus. I priset ingår också en frukostpåse.
