Gammelstad Church Town, Lulea

(4.3/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Visit one of the best-preserved monuments of old Swedish tradition at Gammelstad Church Town. Collections of cottages similar to this one were once a common sight in Sweden. Before the age of cars, people who attended religious festivities from the countryside often couldn't make it back home on the same day, so they built a cottage next to the church. Many of the cottages are still privately owned, but some are open for visitors and restored to give you a glimpse into Swedish history. You can also visit a 15th-century cathedral, and try your hand at traditional crafts. Guided tours are regularly available in Swedish and English, but if you require a specific time or another language, you can book a tour in advance. For Gammelstad Church Town and beyond, use our Lulea family vacation planner to get the most from your Lulea vacation.

  • 1.教堂村的教堂只有在遊客中心對面的那一個,我去的時候是冬天,並沒有太多可看的,而且當天負責看教堂的工作人員生病,所以無法進入教堂參觀 2.在遊客中心稍事休息之後,看了看紀念品,沿著教堂走了一圈之後就返回了,市區可以搭乘公交車到教堂村 3.如果是夏天來這邊,應該會好很多,冬天太冷了。 
  • Very nice to visit with all these pretty cottages buried under the snow in winter! Visit when we are in Luleå
