Together with the majestic mountain peak Gausta, the Rjukan waterfall had been a magnet drawing walking tourists and travellers to the valley. Gausta still rises up 1883 metres over sea level, but the Rjukan waterfall is seldom allowed to show its full force. When it does, tourists again pour into the valley. Eyde used to say that the waterfall has not gone, it has just been put to good use for mankind.” The Rjukan waterfall made it possible for the little Såheim community to be transformed into Rjukan. As early as 19 July 1908, Aftenposten wrote: ”Even if Rjukan loses tourist value, it has undeniably risen beyond belief in sales value.”
