Söderhamn Sverige

The old water tower

The 45-metre water tower has become somewhat of a symbol for Säffle.

The tower, which was built in 1914, was designed by architect Ivar Justus Tengbom, who is also the creator of other famous buildings, such as the Matchstick Palace (Tändstickspalatset) in Stockholm and the Stockholm Concert Hall.

Säffle’s old water tower, which is located next to the hotel, houses an art centre and is accessible to the public during seasonal opening days.


Olof Trätälja's barrow

Located by Säffle’s old water tower in central Säffle is Olof Trätalje’s Royal Barrow.

Olof Trätälja was a Swedish king of the Ynglinga dynasty and is mentioned as the son of Ingjald Illråde in Snorre Sturlason’s Ynglinga saga in the saga collection Heimskringla.

The barrow, which is unusually large, dates from the early Iron Age and is just one of several ancient monuments one can visit in and around Säffle.
