When I lived a bit outside the city, I saw this mill everyday through the window when I was commuting. Since my eyes became so familiar with the sight, in a weird way it never really did catch my interest. But when I moved to my temporary apartment that’s much closer to it, I finally sat foot there.
Skanskvarn is located just across the bridge from the city, and the view from here is amazingly beautiful and almost panoramic.
The atmosphere is relaxed with people eating and drinking, though it can change in tempo when the afternoon becomes evening. Since it’s located a bit outside of the city, it’s not really a place people go to start their night out. You don’t go here for the crowd though; you go here for the privileged view and the fact that you can sit next to a big mill.
Besides the view, the food is also really tasty with meat or vegetarian alternatives, and they have different kinds of alcoholic drinks too of course. And the prices are not too bad.
My tip is to go here when the weather is good. Since you’ll want to sit outside and since the sun takes the visit to a much higher level. Preferably you’ll stay and watch the sun set because, oh my gosh, what a sight.
