This old bridge is situated in a very nice part of town. I highly recommend having a look, taking some pictures and also reading the nearby information board, then continuing the walk along the river until you reach the park at the end. Beautiful scenery.

Historic old stone bridge that has withstood ice floes on the river since 1797. Especially worth a visit as the sun sets behind it at 10.25pm on a late June evening!

Well what be said about it? It is an old bride, quite charming and well preserved. It is easy accessible, but when you have walked over it twice; what else is there? A nice kind of park close by.

Sweden´s longest stone arch bridge can be found in Karlstad. With its 168 meters and twelve spans, the Old Stone Bridge is a massive and immense edifice.

Its a very nice old stone bridge. Still in use. It's kind of a land mark in Karlstad. Not really anything to do with it except, well, walk on it. But it's nice :)
