Älvrummet - Just north of Trollhättan's lock area is the beautiful nature reserve Älvrummet with several hiking paths right by the waters of Göta river. You can also get up to the viewing platform on Kopparklinten hill for the best view in Trollhättan.
Innovatum area - About 1 kilometer from Åkerssjö along the Göta river is the popular Innovatum area in Trollhättan. Here you can visit attractions such as the Saab Car Museum, Innovatum Science Center and Trollhättan Art Gallery.
Trollhättan's waterfall area - It is only a 2 kilometer walk to the waterfall area from the locks in Trollhättan. The waterfalls create a fascinating view when 300,000 liters of water pass per second. The water is only released at specific times during summer (2021: Release of water in the falls are cancelled until further notice due to current restrictions around the COVID-19 outbreak, read more here). We recommend you to stand on the Oscar's Bridge for the best view.
