The eventful history of Billnäs reaches nearly 400 years back in time. What once was a successful ironworks became a center for modern industry, and has now turned into an idyllic, peaceful village admired by tourists all-year round. The village’s history is still clearly visible: the oldest houses date back to the 18th century and the traditional handicraft professions are still practiced. There are several entrepreneurs offering services for both locals and tourists in Billnäs.
