Easily bicycleable from the harbour on the other side of the island. Well maintained and in good order. Price to go up is 4EUR/adult. There's a small gift-shop. Lovely panoramic view of the immediate surroundings, but since it's not very high, you don't really see much more that from the ground.

Steel structure, made in segments with inside stiffness and bolted from inside. Nicely welded outside. Inside provided with wrought iron spiral steps beautifully arranged and provided with view glass on all 4sides at different levels from which one can have a clear view of the land around and the sea on all 3 sides. A great engineering marvel to see !

Frösö Runestone

Frösöstenen is the northern-most raised runestone in the world and Jämtland's only runestone. It originally stood at the tip of ferry terminal on the sound between the island of Frösön and Östersund. The stone dates to between 1030 and 1050. It has now been relocated to the lawn in front of the local county seat due to the construction of a new bridge, between 1969 and 1971, on the original site.

Frösö runestone inscription means: Austmaðr, Guðfastr's son, had this stone raised and this bridge built and Christianized Jämtland. Ásbjörn built the bridge. Trjónn and Steinn carved these runes.
