Älvrummet Nature Reserve, the valley framing the river Göta älv and the waterfalls in Trollhättan. Here, geological formations jostle with valuable habitats and fascinating history. Impressive views are offered from the outlook on Kopparklinten, where knotty pines and oaks stretch over the surrounding precipices. Old buildings are found at Forngården. The lock area and hydroelectric power stations Olidan and Hojum are located just outside the reserve. In Älvrummet, the valley framing the river Göta älv and the waterfalls in Trollhättan, spectacular geological for-mations jostle with valuable natural habitats and a fascinating history. Älvrummet is a rift valley with a big difference in altitude between the valley bottom and the highest point, "Kopparklinten". Despite rapid development, with industrialisation bringing dramatic changes to the countryside, areas of magnificent landscape have been preserved. Today, Älvrummet is a blue-green oasis for plants, animals and the people of Trollhättan.The nature reserve is divided into two parts, one on either side of the river Göta älv in the central area of Trollhättan. The eastern part of the reserve consists of the area around the path Kärlekens stig. The western part comprises the western precipice and surrounding forest from Forngården and south to Talbo. The highest point is Kopparklinten, around 77 metres above sea level.Show more
