The town of Trollhättan was founded along the river Göta Älv at the mighty Trollhättan Waterfalls. The city offers a rich history and many exciting natural experiences. The Trollhättan Waterfalls and lock area offer exciting experiences for both young and old alike. During the summer months, you can see when, at specific times, the gates open and the mighty waterfalls roar once again. For many people, Trollhättan is also known as Trollywood thanks to Film I Väst which has its film studio here.
Several major Swedish and Nordic movies have had scenes filmed in Trollhättan and Vänersborg, so when you walk on the streets of our cities you may recognize a site or two. The city center of Trollhättan is beautifully located near Göta Älv. Here you will find several smaller streets full of shops, restaurants, and cafés, and if you spend time on Drottningtorget (the market square) or walk along the pedestrian street Kungsgatan, you will discover a wide range of shops and eateries. This is also where you will find Folkets Hus Kulturhuset (the culture center, which also houses the city library), where there is always something going on.
