  • Nice walk in the forest and no entrance fee. Not to many carvings are exposed but some are quiet interesting and these are the best rock carvings I have seen in Sweden.
  • 3000 years old rock carvings very well presented.
  • Interesting site. But the carvings a have some distance between them. You either need to devote quite some time to walk or have your car. The little museum gives good information about the site and the shop has lots to offer.
  • Interesting site to visit. Carvings are impressive to see and nice short walk that connects the different spots.
  • Fascinating drawings from the (Scandinavian) bronze age. Don’t miss the regular guided tours offered several times a day in English or Swedish
