In the 1880s the railway reached Ängelsberg. It supplimented the canal and added to the transportation facilities for the Engelsberg ironworks as well as for the oil factory on the island nearby. Ängelsberg became an attractive place to visit with its beautiful scenery, easy to reach with the railway.


The Ironmaster and established artists invited their painting friends and relatives and then the artists´colony the “Engelsberg Painters” developed. Successful painters and industrialists built themselves villas designed by architects and the communty also got a magnificent railway station. Its style was used by local building contractors and thus many buildings got an imaginative look.


The interest in art is very much alive in Ängelsberg and many exhibitions take place in the galleries and the Sculpture park.


A walk through the community, maybe from the World Heritage, the Engelsberg ironworks, offers exciting architecture, beautiful scenery and perhaps some experiences of art.
