Nolhaga Lookout tower
The tower was built in 1941 as part of Sweden's air defense during World War II. According to information, about 200 similar air defense towers were built during this time in Sweden and today only a few of these are preserved. In recent times, the tower has been used to show art by the art association Tornet. In 2021, Alingsås municipality took the initiative to restore the old air defense tower with the aim of making it more accessible to visitors. The lookout tower usually opens in june.
