Högbergsfältet -Nature Reserve

Högbergsfältet on a peninsula in Lake Yngen consists of 15 mines with 200 deep fenced in mine shafts which were worked from 15th century.
The reserve was formed to preserve the mining and cultivation landscape with its well-preserved and rich cultural history background, scenic and varied natural areas with its artificial flora and fauna. An exciting experience is to enter Tilas Stoll, a horizontal mining route. - Note! Closed 2017 due to security risk.

There are about 15 mining holes in the area, these are among the oldest mines in Bergslagen. In the reserve is a memorial stone over Värmland's first organized mining strike in 1869. The mining plant was laid down in 1906. The area has a very rich plant flora, among others, the orchid Purpur Knipperot.
