Mundekulla Retreat and Course Center

OUR VISION

Empowering people for positive change through education and inspiration

Mundekulla is an ecological course and retreat center in the countryside of Småland: The place where also the famous botanic Linnaeus and Pippi Longstocking come from. At Mundekulla people come together for courses, conferences and festivals, from 15-300 people, on personal development, mindfulness, creativity, nature and of course: beautiful nourishing food. 

 

Mundekulla is built on sustainable principles ever since it started over 20 years ago. From the buildings to green energy, from social justice to peace projects. Our biggest wish is to inspire people with the things we do and the food we make.

 

We want to create experiences, arts, learnings and inspiring food you just have to bring home to share with your loved ones.

Mundekulla EcoTower

WELCOME TO
MUNDEKULLA ECOTOWER

The EcoTower’s rooftop terrace stands 25 meters high, commanding a stunning view over the forest and offering a panoramic sight up to 50 km around.

The concept of the EcoTower took root in the 1940th when Berndt Elmberg, founder of Mundekulla, dreamt as a child of exploring beyond the forest where he grew up. Berndt began building the EcoTower towards the end of his life, and this year we welcome our first visitors. The Renowned Swedish architect Stig Bengtsson, specializing in the restoration of stave churches, played a pivotal role in designing this wooden masterpiece. Supported by eight pine poles from the local forest, the EcoTower now reveals that beyond the forest lies... more forest! Welcome to Småland in Southern Sweden and to this, without exaggeration, unique accommodation!

Choose from a room with private access to the Treetop Lounge, or two rooms with private access to the ground floor lounge that boosts a spacious fully equipped kitchen. Or experience the EcoTower in its entirety with beds for up to 8 persons. Enjoy a drink on the top level, immerse yourself in a good book, or simply chill on the rooftop terrace. Of course, everyone renting the EcoTower has access to the terrace at the very top of the tower.

Book a stay in the EcoTower here.

LETTER OF GRATITUDE

Dear friends of Mundekulla,

 

 It has been one month now, since I started in my new role at Mundekulla as general manager – and I have been thinking so much about you! It has been an exciting year for all of us. A lot has happened in the world, a lot has happened in Sweden, and a lot has happened here in little Mundekulla!

Many of you have been with us for a long time – some even the full 25+ years! I feel so much gratefulness for all of you. Not only did we get to make many beautiful memories together (and you also long before I even set foot in Mundekulla), thanks to all of you Mundekulla is still here – your fantastic support during covid, your sharing, your warm messages.

It truly warms my heart every day and I cannot thank you enough. If anything – that’s what I love to share here with you right now: the biggest thank you, you can imagine – from me personally and also from the full Mundekulla team – we are all incredibly grateful and happy to be here – and we know it is thanks to all of you.

Welcome to
a new Season!

From meditation and personal development to yoga and music. We look forward to this year's events!

Lots of gratitude and cheers for fantastic days. It was the first time I was with you.

So wonderful that it finally happened. Feeling so much joy, it was really amazing. ” 

Helena Blomljus

"I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light. For a time I rest in the grace of the world and I am free. "
