The small café called "Slagarboden".  Ref 1Place for coffe and rest. Ref 1The  foundry Ängelsberg is one of the world heritage in Sweden. For this reason the road to this place from the south and  north is Signs for toilett and motorcycle club. Ref 1Road cross for small farm Hästbäck. Ref 1updated to high standard. This is good for all coming on motorcycles. From the south you drive through the small village Virsbo and just outside take the road to the left against Ängelsberg. From the north you are normally coming from city of Norberg and turn at crossing Hästbäck to the left for Ängelsberg. There is an motorcycle club Brakeless situated just near by the foundry.
You will reach the old mull timber foundry which was in use upp to WWII.  Here the Johnson concern earned it's fortune. Mull timber foundry is a blast furnace that is isolated with suitable kind of earth. Around this layer the mull was kept in place by devotailed timber at corners. In order to increase the production the foundry wasbuilt on some meters. When you have reach your goal you can get coffee and cake Minimuseum. Ref 1in a nice little building. If you visit the place when there not is any guided show, you can anyway look in the little picture museum. Here there are pictures and text how it looked like in Ängelsberg.  Here som pictures how it looked like in Ängelsberg. The best is you have service with toilets. Even the girls Transporter for the foundry. Ref 1Bottom part of the rust oven. Ref 1can visit them.
In places like this it is always the way that you must use your own fantasy to imagine how it looked like once. The large area outside the foundry is from the beginning the coal yard and prepared ore.
Here the workers mixed coal, rusted ore and limestone before adding it to the foundry. In a small pit there was still some rusted ore left and small amount of coal.  Even the small transporter is left. Note that the round white tower beside is the rust oven. In this they contaminated the ore. The picture shows the bottom part. I you walk around you find the old rust pit where they warmed upp ore with coal and limestone. All hard work got power from the water wheel. Note that instead of a rust pit in ground a oven was built according to picture.

Now when you are in Ängelsberg you can look at Dybäck's spring. It is situated about 100 m from the crossing to the fondry if you travell to Virsbo. One glance into the spring is not so nice.
