“Adorable town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

So, this was the first stop on our week long vacation through the Great Plains. It was awesome! An eclectic mix of farmers and hippies, the Dala herd was great fun to see, as they are spread through all parts of the town near neat attractions. Shop owners love visitors and will take the time to visit.

“Continuing a Swedish Tradition”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Toronto had it's moose that lost their horns, other cities cows and horses. Dala Horses are uniquely Swedish in a the Little Sweden of the prairies. It would be fun to be around when the herd gathers to welcome a newcomer. The one outside Bethany Church is one such recent newcomer. Each is uniquely and artistically painted in a style appropriate to their owner's occupation or business. A guide helps make it fun for the kids to find them all.

“Fun to Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

These little horses are spread throughout town in a variety of motifs. There are a lot of neat shops and a great Swedish restaurant to visit if you make it to Lindsborg (little Sweden).

“Lindsborg trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

The Dala horses were ok, from mild to wild. My wife thought the one painted as a skeleton was somewhat macabe. Visit the Wild Dala Winery!

“needs work”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

I used to go to this place at least once a year but in recent years the community has let many places die out. The traditional scandanavian culture can still be seen and the dala hourses are great. some of the shops carry unique items but it is sad that the once amazing has gone away---if you go try to catch the mid summer or winter, santa lucia festivals.
