Hälleforsnäs has good communications as well as a rich community of music and theater.

The resort originates in hydropower and iron management. Hälleforsnäs which was owned by the Celsing family during the 19th century, grew into a large and modern industry.

The mill was one of the largest foundries in northern Europe for some time. During the 1980s large parts of the mill were dropped.
Today, the area is owned by a municipal-owned property company and the work to make the area attractive for new entrants has begun.

The story of the mill is shown at the foundry museum, where Hälleforsnäs bandy epic can be experienced.

Nowadays you can find several thing worth seeing. Gjuterimuseum (the foundry museum), Art Gallery, Tourist Office, Axellents first-class resturant and Jürss Dairy with it's award-winning cheeses and other delights. At Hästskoboden you'll find vintage and antique finds.  

The unique Kolhusteatern offers well-played and well-attended musicals every summer.
Look out for the game period on the Kolhusteater website.
