Stay the night in a former railway station!


Dear guests, 

We are Alexander and Jessie van Dort, a Dutch / Chinese family who love the nature, adventures and challenges and aim to offer our best quality and service to our guests.

In all the years we have been fascinated by the beautiful nature in Sweden and dreamed about the peace and quietness living in this magical Nordic country. Therefore, in 2016 we made our big step in life and emigrated from Almelo, the Netherlands to Munkfors, Sweden. We bought Storängens Camping in Ransäter in May 2016, and took over Perrongen Guesthouse in Munkfors in August 2019.  

Perrongen Guesthouse is situated at the former railway station in Munkfors, directly on the side of the cycle path Klarälvsbanan. Munkfors city center and central bus station is approx. 800 meter away, easily accessible by car, by bike or just by foot. The charming ancient part of Munkfors 'Galma Bruket' is approx. 600 meter away. You can check local history, museums, and old buildings, and enjoy the nice view of the waterfall, walking trails and a cup of coffee at local café. 

Perrongen Guesthouse has also a perfect central location for you to discover Värmland in general, 60 km to Karlstad, 30 km to Mårbacka, 45 km to Gettjärnsklätten, 57 km to Brattfallet and Halgaleden, etc. 

We are eager to do our best and offer you a satisfying stay / holiday at Perrongen. 

Warmly welcome!

Best regards,

Alexander and Jessie
