Långban mine and culture village

Filipstad
Langban is one of the world's mineralest sites with well-preserved environments from the mining industry, with mining fields, the cabin and mineral exhibition. Welcome to learn more about the culture.
Closed for the season, reopens summer 2021.

One of the world's mineralest sites with a story that began 1.8 billion years ago. Iron ore has been broken here since the beginning of the 16th century and as late as the 1970s, the mining quietly silenced. On the other hand, Gruvbyn lives with its buildings, mineral collections, exhibitions, beautiful scenery and exciting stories directed by the Värmlands Museum. For you as a visitor, there are a wealth of activities that suit big and small and opportunities for good food and a good night's sleep.
Langbanen is also the birthplace of inventors John Ericsson and Nils Ericsson and you will find the nature reserve Tibergs udde here with beautiful orchids in May-June.
