As I expected, the old brick storage building of military hardware stood strong and proud in the little gated square. The inside was shut for viewing, though. And only a few lonely shops kept it company. I took my lunch in the cafe and enjoyed...More

There are about 6 shops to see (the glass/ceramic shop had lots of wonderful artwork). The cafe food will fill your belly but that is about it. Locate in the Kronhuset is the Gothenburg Wind Orchestra - well worth attending one of their concerts.

It is a nice and old building. I heard it is the oldest building in Gothenburg. Took also a picture.

Good food for a cold day. A selection of cold and warm dishes in a rustic environment that once was military in the center of Göteborg.

As you may tell from other reviews, this place is just ridiculously under developed. The location is absolutely amazing, so close to the center, yet you can't find it, so neatly tucked away among the historical buildings. It has a very quaint chocolate and candy...More
