The lights of the pub that are lit every night have already gone out. They have closed the store. :(

I’ll be driving straight to Trollhättan today to catch a glimpse of Drottningtorget and to document this whole thing in some way.
Whatever. We'll go there and burn the house down. Come on. Please...

Well, did you find me there? ;-)

Lovely pics Eldsjäl, thank you.
So nice to see and recognise some of these places.

Sad that they're going/gone but the nostalgia is great. :D

Have you felt it?
That feeling of being in a magical place. At Agnes's house, at the school where they met. Where they kissed

The short answer is yes, this got quite emotional for me. I’m eager to revisit Trollhättan again in the future.

Overall this was a very hastily put together visit as I tried to visit many places on a single day. Drottningtorget and Sylteskolan being the only two urgent things. I am still planning to take a lengthier trip to Trollhättan so I really can take my time to explore the town, hopefully later this year. I didn’t see all of the locations this time around and still got home pretty late.

The weather was excellent! Apart from it being somewhat windy it’s normally about the best you can get here in springtime Sweden. Trollhättan is as you know a very beautiful town in reality being built around a big river.

When I first looked for a place to park I coincidentally ended up at the Ice rink and from there I quickly spotted a location from the film:
Image

From this place I walked to Drottningtorget where I took my pictures you saw earlier. The place had a big fence around it and people were walking by all the time so I decided not to test my luck by finding my way inside. Still, I did my best to get some decent shots.

Knowing that Agnes’ house (or the Ahlberg family’s, I should say) is only a quick walk from Drottningtorget I got too tempted and just went. There was clearly somebody at home but I never was confronted by anyone and I tried to not make a big deal out of the fact that I was walking around there with my big camera. It felt rather good being there.

I was in a good mood walking all the way back to the Ice rink. Before arriving in the southern part of Trollhättan (the Sylte area) I made a quick stop at Film i Väst. I instantly noticed that rabbit statue in the nearby area that we talked about here on this site awhile back.
Image
And here’s the part of the Film i Väst building where the general public normally is allowed in, but it was the weekend you know.

I managed to spot something from the window:

Sylteskolan:

This place should look familiar. Knowing good and well in beforehand that it should look similar to how it did in ’98 I didn’t expect that I would be that taken aback by it, but I got goosebumps seeing this in person. Really happy that I went there.

Below you’ll find yours truly trying to look cool in front of a camera:

Lastly here’s the new bridge close to where the old Syltebron was. Some despicable prick(s) had apparently sabotaged all the bus stops in the area.

From the southern:

Now it’s getting rather late so I think I’ll stop writing now for the time being.
