Near water, walkable town.
Windy and cold in the winter.
A student city in the north.
Konstens Hus is an art gallery where both local and international artists show their works. There are new exhibitions quite often, and sometimes there are also lectures and other public events in the gallery.Admission is free! Opening hours are 12noon - 4 PM daily during summer. After mid-August the hours are 12noon - 6 PM Tue, Thu and Fri, 12noon...more
The stalls in the choir are medieval and remind of the days when the catholic clergy had their reserved seats there. Seven chairs and six sculptured stall ends have been preserved. This equipment is one of the oldest in the church. To my view they were tailor made :-) One priest must have been very big and the other one... not so....more
Bought food from this place for the first time on Monday 16th July 2012. By Tuesday 17th, I was throwing my guts up, and crying that I wanted to die. Two days later and I am still in agony, with muscle aches, sickness, and diarrhoea. The rest of my family all had different dishes, and they all got sick too!!This shows it was not just a one-off with...more
Harnet has traditional Eritrean food as well as some other dishes. It's worth a visit simply because you don't come across Eritrean restaurants that often! (I don't think I've ever seen one before this one...) The owners are from Eritrea and will be happy to tell you more about the food, they are very friendly.The restaurant looks like any typical...more
Mac India has north Indian food as eat-in or take away. The actual restaurant isn't that nice or cosy (though it's way better than most of the pizzerias/fast food places) and the food isn't _the_ best Indian food I've ever had, but it's definitely worth a visit anyway. Especially if you are tired of pizza/burgers/Chinese food. I have never had food...more
I don't eat hamburgers, but if I did, I would go to Max rather than McDonald's. Max is a north Swedish chain of hamburger restaurants, and are expanding south at the moment because everyone just seems to love their food.In fact, the first time McDonald's tried to open a franchise in Luleå, they had to close again, because everyone went to Max or...more

The local bus system in Luleå (LLT) is quite well-developed. Buses operate between most of the suburbs and central Luleå, as well as to the university and to Storheden (industrial area with many of the larger stores, like big supermarkets and outlet shops).One single ticket for an adult (over 16 years) is 16 SEK, you can use the same ticket if you...more
coming from south, the airplane is the fastest way to come to Luleå! But the train is also nice, it takes like 14 hours' from Stockholm...by bus (www.llt.se), but Luleå is not so big so walking is also an OK alternative.. If you want to get around to places around both Luleå and Norrbotten, rent a car (at OK, Budget or Statoil) OK/Q8:...more
If you are on the lookout for unique things for your home, try QL inredning. They have everything from kitchenware to bathroom rugs to furniture...not the cheapest place to buy these things of course, but it's definitely contemporary design from Sweden and other countries. From very little to very much, depending on what you buy.more
Kupan is run by the Red Cross, and its Luleå store recently (spring '05) moved to a better location. Now it is a quite large second-hand/thrift shop, with everything from clothes to books. If you need to pick up cheap kitchen equipment this could be a good place to start, if you don't mind things that look like they're straight out of the...more

Luleås has a tourist office which helps you to provide you information about Luleå and also other parts of the north of Sweden and especially Norrbotten. They are professionals here and inform you all about all events and things to do here as a tourist. You can also buy trips to the archepelago outside Luleå and buy some touristic souvenir things...more
Hmm, I have to say that 'Kyrkbyn' (the Church town) in Old town some kilometres from Luleå isn't that special. Just some old, small, red cottages. The church can be nice, it is very cosy in there. But of corse, when you are in Old town you may have to cross 'Kyrkbyn' to walk to the church... And well, the place is in UNESCO´s World Heritage List, I just feel those kind of historical place boring.
Clothes that will keep you warm! Luleå is very windy from time to time (...or all the time...) and especially in winter this will make it quite cold. So bring clothes that don't let the wind through. If you go to Luleå in the summer, a thin jacket or sweater could be useful even if it's warm...it gets cooler in the evenings and night, and a...more
-Goretex rain gear (though it's expensive it will be well worth the investement here)-Umbrella if you don't have rain gear-Warm clothes! -Hiking shoes will help to see the scenery -You will certainly want to bring a camera to capture the beautiful scenery here. -If you will be studying here and want to bike a lot, you may want to consider...more
Like everywhere in the north, the countryside is just wonderful. So if the weather is nice remember to put on your good shoes and go for a walk outside the city.
Favorite thing: Luleå is very nice nice city located in north of Sweden. It is not too big but very interesting, especially the old city. For more general information, check the official site. Luleå
