Combined guided tour of Gammelstad Church Town and the Open-air museum Hägnan

”The perfect combo”

Do you want to know more about the largest and most well-preserved church town in the world? Do you also want to experience Hägnan’s traditional, inspiring environment with buildings from past Centuries? Gammelstad has a lot to pride itself on and sometimes you don’t want to choose just one activity. Therefore we offer this popular combo tour.

The guided tour starts at the Visitor Center, in the church town. Here you can feel the wings of history as you wander the narrow streets, visit a church cottage and peek into the stately medieval church (with reservation for church services). During the guided tour you will learn more about what life was like in the church town in the past, how life was like in the cottages, how the church town is used today and why it is a World Heritage Site important to preserve for future generations.

After that we walk down to Hägnan, where you will learn more about life in the peasant community in the north of Sweden. The guide will tell you about life on a prosperous farmstead in the1880s and in a simple croft from the 1780s. You will learn more about the people who lived and worked here and what they believed in. In addition, you will also have the opportunity to listen to fascinating stories about the museum’s various buildings and their functions.
