In Lugnet, just outside the centre, you will find the Swedish national stadium for skiing, which includes all disciplines apart from downhill ones. Many a Nordic ski World Cup and Championship final has been held here and for me, it was quite nice to finally visit this place that I so often see on TV sports broadcasts in winter, and especially to see it with snow. You can see the two terrifying ski jump slopes from all over town.

In the pretty village of Sundborn, not far east of Falun itself, you will find the home of one of Sweden's most famous painters. This is the house he was given by his local father-in-law and where Larsson (AND his very talented artistic wife, often overlooked) lived happily with their many children. All of this can be seen in his paintings; his house, the children...all in a comfy and happy atmosphere in typical Dalarna rustic country style. To be ctd.

This is a typical swedish work 35 km east of Falun. It contains of a few industrial constructions from the times when a few works in the area supplied the big coppermine in Falun with tools and other things.
Unfortunately there's no information whatsover there if it's not open and open it is only in july and august. It's not a big area so an hour is enough to see everything.

This is a fascinating museum!
The coppermine was used until 10 years ago and had been that for several hundred years and is now a World Heritage Museum well worth a visit.
You can go 60 meters down on a guided tour and there's a museum about the mine on ground level.
There's also a café and a shop where there's alot of handicrafts to buy.
If you have the interest count on a half day for this experience.
