Lake Marmen

To the west of the island of Alnö, reached by way of E 14 and the village of Matfors, is Lake Marmen, on the shores of which are numerous prehistoric remains. In front of the beautiful 18th century church of Attmar can be seen the largest runic stone in Medelpad. Other features of interest are the church of Tuna (1776-77; 13th C. font) and the Tunabacken cemetery area.

Alno

To the north of Sundsvall a road bridge (1,024m/1,100yd long, 40m/130ft high) crosses the Alnönsund to the island of Alnö. 2km/1.25mi north of Alvik is a 13th century stone church with stellar vaulting which has vividly colored wall paintings, fine sculpture and atriumphal cross dating back to about 1500. The new church (1896) has a richly carved wooden font from the 12th/13th century. At the southeastern tip of the island is the attractive little fishing village of Spikarna, with the popular Vindheim summer restaurant.
