Röda Sten Konsthall

Take the Älvsnabben ferry from Stenpiren to Klippan and walk along the shore to Röda Sten Art Hall, an industrial building turned art center with graffitied walls and skate lanes outside. Röda Sten focuses on contemporary art with a vibrant, progressive attitude and has a special section for younger artists. The setting in itself is well worth a visit with its rough, industrial charm and location directly under the large Älvsborgsbron bridge. Have a bite to eat on the terrace of the museum café and watch the ships enter the port. Afterwards, take a walk along the shore. Röda sten means “red stone,” and the name comes from the large stone next to the water that by tradition is painted red. Why? Nobody knows for sure.
