During the Bronze Age, the area of Siuntio was covered in water. Only the highest hills emerged from above the surface of the sea. The ancient people living in the area during that time buried their loved ones and leaders under large stone piles. These ancient burial mounts can still be seen on top of Krejansberget hill with beautiful views across the river valley of Siuntio church village.

Even though you wouldn’t perhaps consider a burial site a perfect picnic spot, this is just that. Take something nice to eat, enjoy the history and views, and remember to take the trash with you when you leave.

Know Before You Go

Please park your car at the Siuntio local history museum. From there you need to climb up through the forest. The path up starts after the two red wooden warehouses behind the long red cottage up the hill. You can see the information sign in the beginning of the pathway.

The pathway is not clearly market and is not suitable for people who find it challenging to move.

Please be advised that making open fire is not allowed since during dry season the forest and the homes and museum buildings around it can easily catch fire.
