STF Julita Hostel

More about STF Julita Hostel

Situated in the heart of Södermanland on Lake Öljarn, Julita Farm was donated to the Nordic Museum in 1941 by its last private owner, Arthur Bäckström. Most everything a large estate had: farm office, dairy, brickworks, coach houses with their old carriages and classic taxicabs, not to mention the mansion, will all be found here.

Among the many beautiful gardens and parks near the mansion is the youth hostel, built in 2000.

There are eight 4-bed and one 2-bed rooms available. A fully equipped kitchen featuring a refrigerator, freezer and dishwasher is at your disposal. As well as a TV room, there are showers and lavatories in the corridor, all of which are shared with the other guests.

As an overnight guest, you have free access to the museum and to the exhibits in the mansion and the agricultural area during the museum’s regular opening hours.
Big and small explorers alike can go on discovery hikes in the park with the famous Swedish children’s books’ farmer Pettson and his cat Findus who will be on location every day between noon and 4 pm from end of June until the middle of August.

During the spring and fall, you can enjoy the lovely blossoming of the apple gene bank and peonies or be dazzled by more than 120 different kinds of apples and their colours and shapes.
Ice-skaters and skiing enthusiasts will also find it worth paying a visit to Julita under the cover of snow as Lake Öljarn invites visitors to take part in splendid outdoor activities.
