Lugnet ski jumping hill - the place I'm going to visit today

Stadsparken, city park

"Lugnet ski jumping hill has a hill size of HS134, a construction point of K-120. The hill was built specifically for the World Cup Ski Championships in 1974. Last modernisation took place from August 2012 to end of 2013 because of the preparations for the 2015 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships." (Wikipedia)
