Falu Gruva

World Heritage Falun

The World Heritage Site Falun invites you to a journey back in time with Falu Mine and its master miners' beautiful gardens.


This is also the place for the historical wooden part of the town, which tells the story of how the miners lived for more than 300 years ago.

The unique landscapes, cultural and other features that make up the natural heritage bear witness to our past. The thousand years of mining and associated activities at the Great Copper Mountain (Stora Kopparberget) in Falun, Sweden constitute a unique industrial history. That is why Falun has been inscribed as a World Heritage Site.
