Orrefors Hammer Smithy

Experience the earliest industry in the Kingdom of Crystal! Travel in time using all your senses! In the smithy there is trickling, pounding and oozing… 

The guide is equipped with a speaker so the exciting stories come across clearly.

We follow the iron from lake-ore to the end product: rod-iron. Feel the smell of tar and coal, listen to the puffing of the blowing-machine and experience the pounding of the melting-hammer! Water wheels and machines are displayed while operating.

What was life like for the smith and his family during the 18th and 19th century?

A regular guided tour is approximately an hour in duration. Shorter and longer tours can be arranged upon request.
