  • The Stalls

    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
  • The Crucifix

    The triumphal crucifix is a splendid masterpiece of medieval art. The four evangelists and their symbols are painted in the north in the summer and it brings out the beauty of this crucifix in a most remarkable way.

  • The Frescoes

    The chancel frescoes are from the 1480ies and painted by the master himself, Albertus Pictor. In the middle of the 18th century the frescoes were plastered, however they were restored in 1909. This is the northernmost church with medieval frescoes in the world!

Luleå Restaurants

  • They poisoned my whole family!!

    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...

  • Bishops Arms

    Spending here only one evening on my return way home I could not check too much, it was Sunday night and most places were closed, so this local pub was the best choice for some good food and beer.

    more
  • Persian food and pizza

    Zan has a number of Persian dishes (like various types of kebab) as well as pizza. The pizzas are more expensive than the ones from regular pizzerias, but on the other hand they are made with more "upscale" ingredients such as mozzarella cheese.They also offer take-out.

    more
  • Food from Eritrea!

    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...

  • Indian food in Luleå?

    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
  • Swedish burgers

    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...

    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:...

    If you are on the lookout for unique things for your home, try QL inredning.

Luleå Tourist Traps

  • by maja-li Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    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.
