The canal is interesting and there's quite a bit of history surrounding it. The area around the canal is absolutely beautiful. If you're in the area, it's worth checking out. However, I wouldn't make a long trip to the town just to visit the canal.

Interesting to see the canal and the sluices. Quite large ships sail from the Kattegat up to the Vänaren.

A beautiful sight to behold. The walk from Trollhättan city centre is quite the distance (about 3 km, so expect an hour of walking), but very nice in the summer. The channel itself is not too special itself, it's about the sluice/lock that's so impressive....More
