One of the oldest companies - maybe THE oldest company - in the world. The Falu copper mine and its subsidary companies.
A history of Sweden. A history of the world in mining what we all have enjoyed in everyday life.
Marvellously displayed, explained and maintained.
You'll find it in every aspect: financial, social, human...
Start with taking the little train ride on the premises - you'll get a grip of the place.
A must visit!

Interesting to see the area set up for the ski championships, everything bright and fresh. Two very modern ski jumps which you can get up close to. Nearing completion were new facilities at the top. Not much open at the time of our June visit but a drive, or walk, to the hill top gives great district views. Additionally some nice walks in the parkland. There is a small parking fee in lower car park.

Of course there are major ski areas not far away, but sometimes small is liberating pleasant.Definitely for the family that does not want to worry about the kids going astray.As all ski resorts in these latitudes is struggling with warmer winters, but manages nonetheless get all slopes in good condition. Looking for steep slopes and challenges, you have to take one day at BJURSÅS as a training day for carving turns. Ski rental, shop and restaurant and cheaper lift tickets than is customary.

Gamla Staberg

Reviewed By blauemadeleine - Erlangen, Germany

The garden made me think of Findhorn (a community some may remember from the last century ) which I have never seen but imagined somewhat like this.
Well tended. Worked with love. Abundance. Beauty. A tranquility of days long past.
Beyond the baroque garden there is more to explore - there is a marked path giving information about the old times.
A small shop near the entrance offers very tasteful souvenirs and the Restaurant is a scenic as it is good. That is : very good.

Nice place with a small beach
I liked the location, they have a small kiosk there. You can BBQ using the BBQs located around the beach or bring your own.
Could be a little problem getting there on the gravel road if you are sitting in a wheelchair

After visiting the mine, I expected much more from the museum. There was a temporary exhibition for kids, which I tought it was interesting, but the museum itself, was rather small and basic. Being a UNESCO site, I expected to see much more in the museum.

Jag och min fru var och besökte Pernilla i hennes butik. Där fanns allt man kan tänka sig.
Fat, koppar, skålar bland mycket annat. Färger i alla möjliga variationer. Jättetrevligt bemötande och förklaringar till olika produkter hur de kom till o.s.v. Butiken ligger centralt i bortre änden av shoppinggatan. Kan varmt rekommendera denna butik.

We had a great day outdoors snowshoe walking with Klas and his dog Silka. Klas guided us off the beaten track, telling us about all the animal trails in the snow, the geology of the land and the culture of Falun and Sweden. And we enjoyed a nice cup of coffee made on a small fire. Klas is good company and showed us the beauty of the Falun nature in winter.
