Wow. I love prehistoric sites but sometimes am disappointed by the setting. Not here. It's a little isolated although in summer beach-bums hang around nearby. You can walk from the centre but it's at least 20-30 minute walk. No matter, it's right by the lake...More

This is a very odd location and has nothing special to see. I strongly suggest for you to skip this place since it is also a long walk from the city

This is on the way to the lakeside walk, and well worth the detour. To touch stones carved thousands of years ago really gives a sense of awe and of the flow of time. And it is set within a nature park, that leads to...More

He stones are ok. I wouldn't write home about them. But the park is very nice, and the kids had fun running around and stuff. It also complete the museum visit where they talked about the stones.

It's quite nice to see. Nothing impressive though, I guess if you are really interested in the topic it might be really exciting.

Well not really, no huge crowds or weirdos dressed up as wizards, but it's marginally impressive albeit slightly smaller and a re-creation of what they thought was there 2000+ years ago. Free, easy to get to from the station and close to the lake/ other...More

Interesting place if you like the prehistory. Those menhirs have a lot of story. They're located at a 10 minutes walk from the city center. You can go by foot or by bicycle, and there's a car's park 100 meters away. It's a nice place...More
