Sommarhagen

The home of composer and music critic Wilhelm Peterson-Berger is one of Sweden’s most interesting design artefacts.

Sommarhagen

On Frösön, with miles of views of forests, lakes and mountains lies Sommarhagen. The house was built in 1914 by the composer, critic and music writer Wilhelm Peterson-Berger.
Today he is remembered for “Frösö Blomster” with piano pieces such as “Sommarsången”,”Vid Frösö kyrka” and “Intåg i Sommarhagen.”

The artist’s home, is now a museum, is a dream home from 1914, an original building with influences from national romance and Art Nouveau and characterized by Wilhelm Peterson-Berger’s ideas in terms of design, interior design and color scheme.
It has been likened to “a timbered fortress with a summer-light indoor meeting” and was selected in year 2000 by the magazine Forum as one of Sweden’s best interiors in the 20th century.

There are audio guides in Swedish, English, German and French that tell about the house, about PB’s life and works and who plays his music.
Entrance to the museum costs: SEK 100
In the house’s ground floor there is Café Sommarhagen which, among other things, serves good sandwiches and homemade bread.
