A wooden sculpture, carved with a chainsaw, of a whopper of a salmon stands there as a symbol of the abundant fish populations that inhabit the river. On the top of the hill hidden by bushes lies The blue House from 1912.

On the other side of the river you find the boathouse at Mossegården, named after its founder Abraham Moss. This was the headquarter for the producer of the genuine Drammen Aquavit.
