Description

The Gullringskärret nature reserve is like something out of a fairy-tale. Rare mosses, orchids and sedges grow in the limestone-rich waters. In the springtime, you'll be met by carpets of white wood anemone flowers and rich birdsong. In the fall, the reserve is perfect for mushroom hunting—keep an eye out for the beautiful (and inedible) earthstar fungi.

Be sure to wear some stable and waterproof footwear and follow the trail along the winding Husbyån river, bordered by towering ostrich ferns. There is an entrance to the reserve to the east, with a parking lot next to grazed open meadows.

The historical grave fields are located by the northern entrance. Here, you will also find an open area with a grill and places to sit.
