Southern Sweden » Hotell Björkängen

The perfect choice for accommodation, celebration and conference-going in the Kingdom of Crystal

Hotel Björkängen ("Birch Meadow") is located at Kosta in the heart of Småland glass country. Here you can stop for the night or attend a conference with your colleagues. Hotel Björkängen is the intimate little hotel with the big heart – and a calm, relaxed atmosphere. Being close to nature as we are is balm to body and soul. Is there anyone who doesn't find it easier to concentrate when relaxing, when silence descends, and the birds chirping in the eaves?

In our restaurant we serve breakfast and, for conference delegates, lunch and dinner. Adjacent to the dining room is a terrace where you can enjoy your meal in the sunshine.

We have 26 double rooms all with shower and toilet. Some rooms are located in separate houses, where you get a nice patio in the bargain.

In 2007 and 2008 Hotel Björkängen underwent a complete interior renovation, while a new and larger parking area was built.

We have two conference rooms at the Hotel Björkängen.

Our large conference room accommodates 60 people in theatre style and 40 people in classroom style, the smaller room about 20 people.

The rooms are fully equipped with all necessary audio-visual equipment. You can hire conference rooms by the day or halfday.

We have a lot of good suggestions for activities in connection with your conference, and will do everything to ensure your stay with us meets your requirements.

We also arrange hyttsill at Kosta glassworks.

Hyttsill is an old Småland tradition. We sit in the hot shop and eat baked potatoes with flavoured butter and fried salt herring, which we cook on large plates with cream, onions and dill. The menu also includes Småland smoked sausage, crispy bacon, crispbread, lingonberries, butter and cheese. During the meal our own troupe of "vagabonds" entertains you with music and stories from past and present.

After the meal, it's time for glass-blowers to tame the red-hot molten glass. They dip their pipes down into the glass and "capture" a bubble... perhaps it should be a bowl or a platter? We can all guess.

Then those who want to try their hand at the art of glassblowing can take their turn with the help of the professionals.
