Visiting Alsters herrgård - The memorial estate of Gustaf Fröding
"Alsters herrgård is a traditional Swedish 18th century manor house, situated in beautiful natural surroundings, overlooking Lake Vänern. In 1860, the great Swedish poet Gustaf Fröding was born here. The manor is situated eight kilometres east of Karlstad." (https://karlstad.se/Alsters-herrgard/alsters-herrgard/)
