Artipelag Tour

Artipelag is not just a meeting place for exciting art, beautiful nature and great food. The building is one of Sweden’s largest exhibition institutions. Even so, architect Johan Nyrén managed to create a close-to-nature building clad in waney-edge pitched pine timber, located on a carefully chosen spot amongst the pines and boulders with a view over Baggen’s Bay. One of his fundamental ideas was that the visitor would be met immediately in the entrance hall by the four elements: fire, that crackles in the large open fireplace; earth and mountain that the structure rests upon;  the clear air and the glittering water that surrounds and frames Artipelag. Many believe that with this work, that remains as his last, Johan Nyrén will have written international architectural history.

Groups who Wish to Provide Their Own Guide

Groups who speak a language other than Swedish, English, or German and who wish to provide their own guide may organise a self-guided viewing of the exhibition. However, visits from such groups need to be approved by in advance. Furthermore, Artipelag is entitled to deny groups with their own guides if the timing conflicts with Artipelag’s planned activities. Guides who present in Swedish, English, or German may not guide groups inside the exhibition, but are welcome to do so outside of it. This is to ensure the enjoyment and comfort of all of our visitors.
