Tucked between the lush Teijo National Park with fresh water Matilda Lake and the beautiful Baltic Sea, Mathildedal village stands out. The tight knit community organizes and hosts concerts, gigs, art exhibitions, theatre and many other events and parties throughout the year.
Mathildedal is a mix of old and new. Once an ironworks village, it is now home to many small businesses – in fact, most of the 130 full time residents are entrepreneurs. During the summertime, the village’s population almost triples with most Finns spending their holidays at their summer cottages.
The charismatic 19th century ironworks milieu is a mixture of traditional Finnish wooden red ochre houses and ironworks buildings surrounded by green meadows, wild flowers and beautiful old trees. It is a true pleasure to walk along the creek and pop in craft workshops, cafes and try to choose what local products to taste and take home. Learn about the village ironworks history in it’s tiny museum, hike around beautiful Matilda lake and rent a bike or kayak to discover the surroundings of the village.
Mathildedal is a warm, welcoming, and cozy village that offers a taste of peace, harmony, and fun.
