Visiting Falun

There are many reasons to visit Falun. Read more about our interesting history under the headlines History and World Heritage Site.

Today’s Falun offers a rich and vibrant cultural life, particularly at the Dala Theatre and the Dalarna Museum. It’s easy to stay in shape in Falun. Go for walks and bicycle tours, or skiing and skating in the winter. Lakes Varpan, Runn and Tisken, which surround the town, give Falun the feel of a real lake city with numerous opportunities for swimming and boating. All sights in and around the city are detailed under the headline Sights.

Falun is surrounded by nature and large forests. The municipality’s woods are home to elks, lynx, wolves and bears. If you’d like to get closer to nature, rent a cabin on the outskirts of the town. You can go fishing and join wildlife excursions and elk and wolf safaris. During the annual elk hunt around 300 elks are shot in the municipality, as well as some bears.

After a full day of activities you can relax and have a good meal at one of the town’s restaurants or pubs. Whether you just want to enjoy a nice dinner or dance the night away, there’s an alternative to suit everyone. Falun is host to many sports, music and cultural events. Leading championships are often located here, such as skiing, track and field and indoor and outdoor bandy competitions. In the summer of 2004, the pop group Gyllene Tider with singer Per Gessle attracted an audience of more than 20,000 at Lugnet, which is one of the country’s most extensive facilities for concerts, sports competitions and other events.

Falun is an easy place to get to. Trains and buses leave at regular intervals from Stockholm and other Swedish towns. Nowadays, the Stockholm train also stops at Arlanda Airport. If you prefer to take a plane, you can fly directly to Dala Airport. If you’re going by car, the distance from Stockholm is 230 km and the trip takes around three hours.
