Christmas market “Husebyjul”
Christmas at Huseby Bruk 20 km south of Växjö is the largest Christmas market in the Nordic region today, with over 30 000 visitors. Around 170 exhibitors set up their booths on the estate. Here you find Sweden’s best craftsmen and small-scale food producers. Enjoy the wonderful scents of aromatic juniper, live candles and good food.
At dusk we light outdoor candles
The whole estate is adorned with thousands of small lights and 500 outdoor candles, for the sake of the atmosphere.
Christmas goats, candles and elves
Handmade Christmas goats and other straw creations, hand steeped candles, juniper crafts that scent the air, and Christmas elves in all shapes.
The country’s largest gathering of farm trades will make your mouth water. Gear up for Christmas and buy brännvinsost (a very flavourful type of cheese), knäckebröd (Swedish crispbread), smoked chicken, lingonberry-bread, sausages, marzipan, game meat, home-pickled herring, ostrich, and a bottle of Huseby’s own glögg (mulled wine).
Goldsmiths and basket weavers
Enjoy all the creativity and knowledge that is gathered here during the Christmas market. Forging, ceramics, basket making, hand steeped candles, handwoven tablecloths, glass art, carving and whittling, woodwork in all techniques – everything is available.
Historical people at the castle
Welcome to visit Huseby Manor during the Christmas market. The entrance cost is 50 SEK, and then you are allowed to walk freely in the castle and experience Florence’s home where she lived and grew up.
Naturum is open throughout the Christmas expo
In our crafts workshop in the Visitor’s Centre, we bring out craft materials from nature mixed with beautiful paper, ribbons, glitter, wool and much more. After that, it is only your imagination that sets the limits. Go on a treasure hunt and figure out where the animals find their food in winter. Listen to the exhibition with sounds from nature and finish off the day with some quiet time, with the sounds of the animals of the forest in our experience room.
Entrance cost: 100 SEK. Children under the age of 12, free of charge.
Parking: free of charge.
