One of West Sweden's seven wonders are the locks in Trollhättan. Hundreds of thousands of tourists visit the area each year to see how boats make their way through the locks but also to see 300,000 litres of water per second being released into the river at the Trollhättan Waterfalls.
The Trollhättan Falls are unique. They will treat you to a spectacular experience, as 300,000 litres of water per second rush by. The best place to enjoy this view is from the Oskarsbron (Oskar's bridge).
Three separate lock systems create the idyllic and green park area of Gamle Dal'n. Here, one finds lock segments from 1800, 1844 and 1916. The four locks that are in use today were inaugurated in 1916 and have a difference in level of 32 m. Here, you will also find a nice café (open during the summer) and the Canal Museum.
The Innovatum Area is made up of what used to be the industrial area of NOHAB. NOHAB was a successful company that started in 1847 and made everything from locomotives to diesel engines. Today, the area is still home to innovation, with attractions such as Innovatum Science Center, Saab Car Museum and the Trollhättan Art Gallery.
