  • Fantastic, calm area with well-maintained infrastructure. Free access museum with rich souvenir shop, easy accessible rock carvings even for the disabled, and large, free parking areas.
  • The rock carvings are always open, mind you they can be covered in snow. The museum is open summertimes. Free, with a most amazing exhibition and story about the bronze age people that lived here 2-3000 years ago.
  • Rock carvings and an Unesco world sight. Well taken care off with interesting history text posts. Free of admission as well.
  • Very interesting. To feel a touch of centuries history
  • Cool rock carvings and description of the peoples here at the time.
