Carved Canoe Sep 11, 2016
In front of the Commercial Chamber Building, you will see something which looks like a rotten tree. Indeed, it is a tree which was chosen to make a canoe out over 200 years ago. There is a short explanation about the techniques used. The carving of the canoe was given up after the tree was finally found unsuitable for it. It was placed on its current sport in 2013. The tree is classified as CMT (Culturally Modified Tree) and therefore protected by law as part of the cultural heritage.

It's surely nothing to make a larger detour, but since it's in the city centre, it is worth to mention - especially since the information on the explanatory boards were quite good and gave you an insight over canoe carving in general.
