Welcome to the Soundwalk in Östhammar!

 

Come for a walk through the town of Östhammar. You will find signs with QR-codes at seven different spots throughout the town. Scan the code and listen to stories about the place you are standing in and the historical sounds of Östhammar.

Listen to the sound of the town being burnt to the ground by Russians in 1719 and the creaking sound of the Wiking ships sweeping past Nordanviksstenen, the dangerous rock of the Östhammar inlet. Listen to the sounds of craftsmen at work by the heritage center and the dreadful story of the Hen Throttler at the place where the old courthouse used to be. Relive the heyday of Källör, its high society bathing guests and regattas in the bay with Captain Lundin bellowing from the bridge of Östhammar 1 in the background.
Please notice that the marked route on the map is just a suggested route. You may listen in whatever order suits you and stop at the number of points of your personal choice.
Accessibility: The route contains footpaths and slopes but no stairways. Printed manuscripts are provided at the tourist information center at Rådhustorget, making listening easier for the hearing impaired.

QR-codes are scanned using a QR-reader that can be downloaded as a free app for your smartphone. If you do not have a QR-reader, please visit the website address stated on the sign.
