Umeå was founded in 1622 by King Gustav II Adolf. It was a major tragedy that led to Umeå often being called the “City of Birches”.
Join or free english speaking city tour every Wednesday and Friday to learn more about Umeå.

A massive fire destroyed large parts of the city in 1888. After the fire, measures were taken to stop flames jumping from house to house in any future conflagration. Wide boulevards were constructed and 3,000 birches planted along their edges. Learn more about our “City of Birches”! Your official guide gives details of Umeå’s history and the changes in the city centre. All the guided walking tours start at 16 outside Umeå Tourist Center and take about 1 ½ hours.
