Birgit Nilsson Museum & Café
In the mid of Bjäre, in the village Svenstad, is Birgit Nilsson family farm beautifully nestled between hills and pastures. Here, La Nilsson grew up and worked on the family farm while she dreamed of a future in the world of song.
The farm is now a museum, according to Birgit's desire, where memories of childhood and the stunning opera career are preserved. Birgit's childhood home appears intact in the company of a guide, which tells of growing up and the way the music. If possible, we offer tours in English or in German on request.
