At Innovatumrundan, you experience history and future with the water of the Trollhätte canal as a blue thread. Once at the Innovatum area, take the opportunity to visit one of the exciting attractions there before you return to the city center again.
The waterway to Innovatum
Innovatumrundan (Innovatum Walk) takes you on a trip from central Trollhättan's beautiful island Spikön and Strandgatan street along the Trollhätte canal all the way down to the old industrial buildings in a modern touch at the Innovatum area. You follow the blue vein all the way and enjoy the calm water, beautiful nature and maybe one or two boats on its journey north towards Lake Vänern or south towards Gothenburg.
Along the road or in close proximity to the walk, there are several of Trollhättan's popular attractions to visit, such as Trollhättan Waterfalls, Olidan power station, Skrotnisse's and Vattenkraften's playgrounds and Kungsgrottan (Kings cave).
