Artists has created art work on top of mountain. The most strange one is one artist recreating the Hollywood sign writing his own sir name "Johansson" on the north slope of the mountain. You can drive up on top of the mountain during summer (please pay attention to opening hours). Or convince your self to take the stairs. Kvarntorpshögen is open 24/7. To get there you can go by bus, how ever the bus does not stop next to the slug mountain. You´d rather go by car or if you are brave by bicycle.
