Finding the viking rock carvings proves difficult because the name Himmelstalund seems to refer to everything around. Find the swimming pool and a path next to it leads into the large grass meadows, turning into a boardwalk where you find the carvings some 800 mtr. further. The carvings shows boats, animals etc and are clearly marked in red. They are flat on the ground and not covered. Of course the visit to the park as well as parking is free.

Very cool site, nice setting in a park, and a nice walk to get there from Norrköping. Highly recommend downloading the app Norrköpings Stadsmuseum which gives a lot of extra info in text and some audio.

Had some extra time in Norrköping so went to find these rocks. Walked through the park by the cemetery and under the road by the swimming pool. Then it’s a short sign posted walk up to them. Very quiet place by a campsite and I was the only person there looking at the rocks. There’s information boards that tell you what you’re looking at- in English too. Some of the markings are very clear and so well preserved.

First of all, the museum's closed. There are guided tours of the carvings with an archeologist, but very seldom, something like once a month in the summer season. It's a great area for a walk, maybe a picnic, but there could have been so much more to do around the rocks. And the information provided on site is rather basic.

I was impressed with the quality of these rock carvings. A nice walking path was built so that you can easily reach the rocks without damaging them. The park where the rock carvings are is quite nice - bring some food and enjoy the quietness!
