This area is entertwined with regular buildings. It's all run down and has construction scaffoldings all over it. You can't really see anything. No good shops or restaurants. A total wast of time.

We really enjoyed strolling around the streets of the Viking Triangle. Unfortunately we were a bit early in the season, so not everything was open. We enjoyed the various tourist treats (like being able to stand behind a viking figure and have your photo taken). Good fun!

Nice way to spend a few minutes. The stairs are steep, so not user friendly for those who have health issues with climbing. The story is interesting, even for those who stay on the ground floor

The tower is very interesting and definitely worth a look and the area is a nice place to walk around. It is a shame that people are using the Viking boat as a garbage can though.
