We invited all participants
of the Summer School for three social events in Karlstad:
Conference Centre at 19:00.
Tuesday, 7th August:
Vestvåg waited for us in the inner harbor of Karlstad. On the M/S Vestvåg we were served a classic shrimp dinner while
the boat took to a trip to lake Vänern, the third
biggest lake in Europe, on a perfect sunny evening. The M/S Vestvåg was originally an icebreaker towboat built in
1885. In the 1970’s it was converted in a passenger boat and restored in
1978 and extended in 2004. We met at the Karlstad inner harbor at 18:00
(in this map
the harbor is at the south-east – ‘inre hamnen’ in Swedish).
We had a pleasant dinner at the Terassen
Restaurant, which is located at the Mariebergsskogen
park. Before dinner, we had the opportunity to be guided around the
park and enjoy Karlstad’s
first city park. We meet at 18:00 in front of Mariebergsskogen.
park is located at walk distance from downtown (15 to 20 minutes). In this map,
the park is located at the south-west corner, while the train station is at the
north-east corner. A map of the
park is located here
(Terassen is the dot number 7).
