Here you can have a nice stroll in this old part of the city. You can also learn how things were working in the old Days and how important the water was.

Old time power by water and old time factories. Interesting to see how little was needed for the mills/factories to move in. Old papyrus, and others.

Nice old town area with some museums and shop and a very nice restaurant "Kråkan". Stroll around the little square and enjoy a view of the former paper mill.
