Walked all around Haga, then eventually up to Skansen Krona , only to find it being closed at 2pm on a Friday afternoon.....no coffee shop, no signs at the bottom saying closed, and no toilet facilities....a bit of a let down!

The fortress on Risasberget Hill has been watching over the city since 1689 but has never been in any battles. The stones in the building are suppose to have come from the old fortress of Elfsborg and the roof was added in 1700. It has...More

Fantastic view! Great place to relax and enjoy the overwhelming panorama view across the sea and the many islands. Make sure you are ready to walk an uneven path uphill easily.

Good workout to take the stairs up to the top! 365 degrees great view over the city. Take the other way down by taking the path. You can reach Haga, the oldest part of Gothenburg from here as well.

Incredible how amazing Gothenburg is to do outside activities, different places, such as skansen Kronan, that motivate us to simple go for a walk with the family, run with friends, or even a picnic!

Quite a climb up to it but well worthwhile. I was lucky to get access to the tower which is done up for events but still impressive with history

Skansen Kronan successfully guarded Gothenburg harbor from invasion for hundreds of years. It deserves a better fate than being a catering hall and concert spot. Climbing this long stair case is not easy for an old man and especially disappointing to find this unique fortress...More
