Klippan is located just below Älvsborgs bridge. The area of Klippan was a precursor to the community that would later become the city of Gothenburg. There used to be salting-houses, glassworks and foundries here during the eighteenth century. The Scottish Carnegie family owned sugar refineries and breweries in the area later on. Today, Klippan is a cultural heritage center. You will also find a cafe, hotel and restaurant here. Saint Birgitta's chapel is located in the same area. The easiest way to get here is to take the ferry Älv-snabben from Lilla Bommen to Klippan.
