This old bridge is situated in a very nice part of town. I highly recommend having a look, taking some pictures and also reading the nearby information board, then continuing the walk along the river until you reach the park at the end. Beautiful scenery.

Well what be said about it? It is an old bride, quite charming and well preserved. It is easy accessible, but when you have walked over it twice; what else is there? A nice kind of park close by.

Its a very nice old stone bridge. Still in use. It's kind of a land mark in Karlstad. Not really anything to do with it except, well, walk on it. But it's nice :)
