Galtströms Järnbruk

Galtströms Järnbruk on the Njurunda coast is not only Medelpad’s oldest ironworks, but also its biggest and last ironworks. The works was founded in 1673 and ceased operation in 1916. The well-preserved historic industrial environment is a fascinating ancient monument of national interest. The forestry museum has photos of the glory days of the works. Galtström church, which dates from 1680, is one of Sweden’s best preserved industrial churches and well worth a visit. Industrial history is not usually something for children, but there is even a Galtström for children. They can run around and meet the animals in their enclosures. In the summer they can pat or stroke cows, lambs, chickens and rabbits.
