Worth going to see and amazing to think has been in place since 1913 and attracts so many visitors. There are plenty of places you can explore around the area, and stop for food and drinks as well

It's a small mermaid statue sitting on the rock. The location is quiet and scenic. Nothing much to do there. Beside it there is the castle fortress.
