The Bergman Estate on Fårö consists of four houses and a cinema. The estate was expanded through the years; Ingmar Bergman viewed it as an extension and expansion of his own artistic pursuits.

The main building is located at Hammars. This house was Ingmar Bergman’s private home and workspace. Hammars is open to residents between nine and five on weekdays. Residents stay in Ängen, Dämba, the Writing Lodge, or in the guest house at Hammars.

Ingmar Bergman moved in at Hammars in 1967. The house is 57 meters long, built in one story to blend in beneath the pine trees. Yet it offers a breathtaking view of the rocky shore and the Baltic Sea.

Ingmar Bergman lived here until his death, on 30 July 2007. The house was repeatedly expanded throughout the years, and it was here Bergman wrote and prepared for his many film and theatre productions.

Every room has its purpose. There are two offices, a conversation room, the contemplation room built for Ingrid Bergman (who lived in Hammars together with Ingmar Bergman for 24 years), and so on. Hammars also contains Bergman’s well-equipped library of books and collection of VHS films.

Residents have access to Hammars on weekdays between nine and five. All residents get an introduction to Hammars on arrival by the housekeeper Kerstin Kalström.

The house rules can be read in a folder located in the kitchen.

Residents have access to Hammars Monday–Friday 9am to 5pm

A few hundred metres into the woods from Hammars lies the house at Ängen. Here Ingmar Bergman built a solid and beautiful residence in classic Gotland style with large, inviting rooms, a magnificent fireplace and a charming guest house, surrounded by fields of flowers and wild strawberries.

The main house has two large bedrooms and a smaller one, a spacious living room and a kitchen.

The guest house, Drängstugan, consists of a bedroom, kitchen, private bathroom as well as a living room on the upstairs floor.

The Writing Lodge (Skrivstugan) has Fårö’s finest location, a little cottage down by the seaside in a clearing amid the low pine forest, surrounded by Fårö’s characteristic stone fences. It consists of a large bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom. As well as the sea. And the sky. And bird song.

In Scenes from a Marriage (1973), the Writing Lodge acts as a backdrop for the reconciliation scene between Johan and Marianne (Erland Josephson and Liv Ullmann).

Ingmar Bergman’s house at Dämba is a beautifully renovated farm property from 1854, just a few minutes’ walk from the Baltic Sea. It overlooks the marshes at Dämba träsk, a lake with an exceptionally rich bird life and a lovely landscape that has been cultivated for generations. The barn at Dämba was turned into Ingmar Bergman’s private cinema, Biografen, where he came to watch films every day.

The main house at Dämba consists of two large bedrooms, two living rooms, a kitchen and two bathrooms. The annexed wing of the house, Flygeln, also contains two bedrooms, a living room and a kitchen. Stone fences and lilacs, as well as an unusually lush garden with beautiful flower beds and fruit trees, surround the house and its wing. The ghost of an old (and benign) judge inhabits the lilac hedge.

Part of the property is Kvarnen, the very picture of an old windmill. It has been tastefully converted into a living space with one bedroom with a double bed, a bathroom, a kitchen that also serves as a day room, and a stunning view of the lake and the surrounding fields.
