Round Barrow(s)


Folklore says that Ströböhög was created by a giant, who was coming
from the Dalarna , carrying a sack with gravel. When the giant
arrived to this place, he stopped and looked over the lake Mälaren.
When he stood there, there was leaking so much gravel from his sack,
so the barrow was created.

According to another folklore, which was written on paper in 1667,
there is a cottage made of oakwood inside the barrow, where a light burns sometimes.
The key to the cottage is kept in the Nyckelberget (Key mountain).
Also there a light burns sometimes. A dragon is watching over
Ströböhög, and it's sometimes flies over to the Nyckelberget.
