  • 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!  more »

  • Long way up but it's worth it. Amazing views from the top. Nice place to sit and relax when wheatear awesome. Nice place to do some awesome panoramic shots.
  • It's breath taking when you look at the whole city from above . Amazing picnic placce
  • Bothing special there, but there is a nice park and beautiful view of Gothenburg
  • Beautiful view. It is great to climb all those stairs and get the prize of an amazing view from the hilltop.
  • I didn't know this place existed until I spotted it down a side street in Haga. The long flight of stairs at the base were what lured me in. There's over 150 steps to the top and I thought it would be a good idea to jog up them. Totally knackered at the top. The building has amazingly thick walls and is a menacing looking building. The view from the top is pretty good and would be even better on a totally clear day.
