Upon arrival at Lunde locks, you have time for an icecream or a refreshment at the lockside café, before the Canal bus returns to Ulefoss (duration 15 minutes). From Ulefoss locks it's only a 5-minute walk to Øvre Verket, which can be found by following the sidewalk past the car park and Ulefos Jernværk. If you have parked your car here earlier in the day, you do not have to move it. 

Øvre Verket is a collection of listed workers' housing that offers gift shops, exhibitions, local crafts etc. At Spiseriet, a modern restaurant in the middle of the courtyard, you will be served a 2-course menu, incl. a drink. After a good meal, it's time for a guided tour of the workers' housing at Øvre Verket with a local guide. 

The car can be parked for free in the parking lot approx. 200 meters before Ulefoss locks (when you come from Ulefoss center).
