My first visit to the World Heritage Site of Sammallahdenmaki. A very historical place with marks from the people living in the area in the Bronze Age (about 1000 years BC). It's recommended to join a guided tour.

This is a bronze age burial site, which is a World Heritage Site, due to being the most significant such site of all Scandinavia, or to be more precise, Fennoscandia. It is composed by several groups of rocks, spread over 1.5 km. There are two parkings. I can only write about the north parking: it is very close to the... More

Sammallahdenmäki is a Bronze age burial site in the Lappi municipality which was designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1999. Located not too far away from Rauma it makes for an interesting diversion rather than a trip in itself. The burial cairns are well preserved but could do with some additional information to put them in context.

We knew what we were looking for, but otherwise it's best to get here as a part of an organised trip by Rauma museum, as it's only reached by a car. I found the site marked quite well, there's a huge info pannel with map provided along with a guestbook to sign. Lovely toilets on site as well, a nice... More

A UNESCO world heritage site that is not well marketed. You have to know what you're looking for to actually enjoy. The bronze age burial sites (almost 40) date back to 1500 to 500 BC. Yes, 3000 or so years. There's a bus entrance and a small signboard with brochures in a box (the best marketing I saw). There's also... More

You can get Sammallahdenmäki information at the car park but then you walk to the forest like orienteering. If you are not good in reading map, you cannot identify which burial sites and what it is. When my Finnish friend and I reached Church Floor, a local Finnish tour guide was talking about the Church Floor. It was lucky that... More

Sammallahdenmaki is an interesting place if you are seriously into history. I would definitely recommend reading the literature near the parking lot to help understand what you are looking at and its significance before you make the short hike to the mounds. Another recommendation is to ensure you have good directions for getting here. Signage is a bit confusing and... More
