Originally, Djäkneberget was a rocky hill with no vegetation. Sam Lidman had the idea to make Djäknebergets to a place for man’s education in mind and body. 1862, work began to plant trees and shrubs, and constructing paths, stairways, and small gazebos with a beautiful view over the city and lake.
The uniqueness of Djäknebergets are approximately 500 stones with inscriptions that Sam Lidman carved. Djäkneberget is now a beautiful park for all ages with a miniature golf course, dance hall, restaurant and cafeteria. All this in the middle of the town of Västerås.
simple but so powerful.
Very moving words to leave behind. I like seeing your language in print.

Wow, what an amazing place. Very strong inscription on the stone!
Cool. I know a monument in my surroundings with almost the same message: “Leaver dea as slaaf” witch means something like: In stead of being a slave I rather be dead. This wiki gives you the details (if you're interested): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Warns
