Stopped on our way from Linköping to Göteborg and ended up spending an hour or so watching the Wasa Lejon traverse the locks. Fascinating to watch the process. Lots of great photo ops. Don't think it would have been nearly as interesting if there wasn't...More

Very nice and cosy area. We accidentally stumbled on some event, so quite a lot of people unfortunately. But well worth a visit anyway.
