In the article I explore the bourgeois salon as a landscape for learning. The project is directed towards the didactical functions of the salon and its importance for the spreading of pedagogical systems in Sweden. The purpose is to highlight the Munktellian salon in Falun and its relation to international, mainly German, role models. The project emanates from German educational theory with relevance for the romantical, new humanistic ideal of education. Of a certain interest are Johan Henrik Munktell´s (1804–1861) education travels (bildningsresor). Inspired by Mendelssohn´s music salon in Berlin and the early salons in Uppsala he created a salon where his daughters were educated in art and music. A letter collection from J. H. Munktell to his father J. J. Munktell in 1828–30 can be considered a unique historical material, which places the Falun salon in a continental context of culture, education and industrial pretensions. The method of the study is based on Paul Ricoeur´s hermeneutics. The narrative moments are qualified through interpretation to give the historical material a new description. Through the project, conditions that contribute to changes in the landscape of educational history are accounted for. The results extend the knowledge of the early Jewish salon culture in Germany and how it has influenced general pedagogy and music education.
