There are nearly one thousand farmhouses in Hälsingland. All unique, beautiful and historically interesting, built in a special area in the world; in Hälsingland.

But seven of the Hälsingland farmhouses are more unique than the others. They are the farms that are inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage list under the name "Decorated Farmhouses of Hälsingland", selected to represent all of the Hälsingland farmhouses. The nomination focuses on what really is exceptional and unique about the farms.

Welcome to the Decorated farmhouses of Hälsingland – a world heritage site that offers so much in the form of grandiose architecture, history, culture and exciting stories

Find your way to the Hälsingland farmhouses

In addition to the seven world heritage farmhouses, there are a variety of traditional farmhouses scattered throughout the region. Many of them are today receiving visitors, both those with the World Heritage status and around 50 or so other unique farmhouses in Hälsingland. Several of the farmhouses also offer accommodation.

The farmhouses and their various accommodations are very different, but all reflect the tradition and individuality of the Hälsingland farmhouses. Accommodation can be found in the bed cottage, the maid’s room, or in the main building (large farmhouse) offering a homely atmosphere and character.

Among the farmhouses that are open to the public there are both homesteads and private farms, and some of them are working farms. The tour may include entire farms and the local villages or a part of a dwelling house. Common to all environments is that the cultural and historical values have been preserved and nurtured for a long time.

At several of the farms there are a wide range of different programmes, cafes/restaurants, classes and sales.
