Perfekt place for recreation, look at all the boats in the locks, enjoy a gigant shrimpsandwish at the ”Slusscafe”. On wednesdays there is an exhibition of old cars and motorcykels, free of charge. Lovely place to be in the summertime.

You can enjoy the famous shrimp sandwich and a coffe with a beautiful view at slusscafet. Slusscafet is a café located nearby, a local soccerclub owns the café so all the money goes to the youths in the soccerclub!
