Layers of history – In the geopark we find geological phenomena and places that are only found here or in a few places in the world, such as; the peneplane (the bedrock surface) with its flat surface, the table mountains which with their unique rock layers rise from the plain landscape and ice age deposits that create an incomparable landscape. This geology has also created conditions for varied flora, species-rich fauna, exciting cultural and industrial history and active outdoor life. Platåbergens Geopark is a collaboration between nine municipalities; Grästorp, Vänersborg, Trollhättan, Lidköping, Götene, Skara, Falköping, Skövde and Mariestad.
Platåbergens Geopark has been given status as Sweden’s first UNESCO Global Geopark. Today there are 177 geoparks across 46 countries. These geoparks collaborate via the Global Geoparks Network, which aims to connect geoparks all around the world.
