Audience Info

The nature and tranquillity of Ytterjärna is an inspirational resource  and we encourage all visitors to take advantage of it.

Ekoleden takes you through the region’s stunning, pristine countryside. The 12km trail connects Järna with gardens, farms, forests and the Baltic Sea. With breaks, walking the full trail is typically a half-day excursion.

Kulturcentrum Järna Gardenpark: The 100 year-old grounds are a tranquil paradise filled with flowering and fruit trees, cultivated beds, and stunning ponds and rivers. Visitors may enjoy the sense of peace instilled from wandering through the natural splendour of Södermanland. Don’t miss a visit to the lovely little reed house by the waterside and the clearance ponds.

The Rose Garden at Kulturhuset i Ytterjärna is one of Sweden’s most beautiful attractions and is home to more than 100 varieties of Scandinavian roses.

James Turrell’s Skyspace is a meditative, inspiring installation that provides the opportunity for reflection and stillness. Beginning 30 minutes prior to sunset, and lasting between 60 and 90 minutes, visitors sitting in the Skyspace see the dazzling natural light and colour performance during the sky’s transition from day to dusk to night.
