It is located high on a hill in the city, and has an amazing view. The castle itself it pretty small but it has a great design. And there is a lovely little restaurant inside. It is a must see for the city!

Early modern period fortress and park around it is a popular picnic destination for locals. For tourist it offers wonderful view of city centre and nice walk (if you cope with steep stairs leading to/from Haga)

A little difficult to get up there, as there are 191 stairs you have to walk, but the view is outstanding! Would recommend!

At Skansen Kronan there is not much to see but the building, which you can only see from the outside, is beautiful and located on the top of a hill were you can get an amazing view of the city.

Nice city park with grateful view at the top. Lots of stairs and a very steep walk. Not for the mobility impaired.

This an old Gothenburg fortress is situated very central - close to Järntorget. If you want to go up to the fortress take good shoes and be ready for the steepy hill.

We spotted this 'castle' as it was highlighted on the tourists map we were given by our hotel, but really was very unimpressed when we looked around. Yes its a lovely refreshing walk up the mound to get to the building but the view from...More
