Overview
More
Slag is a by-product of copper smelting. Slegghaugan stand as large mountains that are a testament to the huge amount of activity that has taken place over 333 years. If you climb to the top of Slegghaugan, you can enjoy a panoramic view of the Mining-Town. Very close to Slegghaugan is Sleggveien, also referred to as Pippi Street. An episode of Pippi Long Stocking was filmed here.

This trip offers great history and great view over Røros. Maybe the best experience is to do a guided walk through these.

Slegghaugan is definitely worth a visit. The views from the top of the slag heaps are amazing! To think that these piles have been here for generations and are now a protected UNESCO world heritage site is pretty incredible!

Quite central hills with good views. We went here as a part of the guided city walk (recommended), and by ourselves. Scenic river close by. That is why the city was founded here and not closer to the mines - the water energy of the...More

We went to Roroos and we drove past these big black piles of rocks with some snow on them. There was a museum but it was shut, so we didn't find out what it was all about. But it was a weird site, you don't...More

The big slag heaps dominated a portion of the town of Røros. The heaps, the small cotttages, the smelting factory are protected by UNESCO - very interesting how the rest of the town surrounds the area and yet seems to complement it. Climb up onto...More

In addition to the great views, it is starkly attractive on its own. The various bits of slag under your feet have fascinating shapes and sheens. The faint odor reminds you that you are standing on top of three hundred years of mining detritus.

I recommend to walk and climb to the highest point of Slegghaugan, and you will see fantastic view surrounding Røros. The walk is easy.
