  • Honestly, this is just a very small (3 meters) memorial pillar. Nothing special about it, and it is very far away from the city center. Not really worth it I say.

  • This historical monument is well worth a visit whatever the weather. Although snowy on our visit, it is only a short walk from the car park up a heated path and steps!

  • You will not find the obilisk here... It is a few km away. Search for Meridianstøtten
  • Interesting piece of science, but the surrounding could be nicer.
