Welcome to the World Heritage Site Gammelstad Church Town and Open-air Museum Hägnan

This is the place where Luleå was founded, and grew from a small church and trading place to a real city. The city was moved in the 17th century, and that was when people began to call the place of “Gammelstad”. In 1996, UNESCO captured Gammelstad’s church town on the list of world heritage sites for humanity.
