  • An old fortification to defend the Gothenburg against the Danes, among others. Now contains Skansen Kronan a military museum filled with old uniforms and some weapons. The view from the top is huge.

  • Quite a hike, but worth it. Views are incredible. Great place for a picnic, amazing pano view from above  more »
  • The view over the city and the river is very nice, with an almost 360 degrees panorama. However the access to the inside of the tower is restricted as this is a restaurant / place for special events. ...  more »

  • It is a perfect detour while walking and exploring Haga Nygatan. Before climbing around 200 steps towards the top, don't forget to notice the mini garden on the right. The views from the top are unique and satisfying after the climb. Good photographic opportunity and healthy climb for all ages!
  • It really a wonderful place to have a 360 degree look at the city around the centre. There are two ways to go up but the best one is to climb around 200 stairs.
  • Old town of Haga district in Gothenburg. Very unique and original. Lots of hipsters on the street! :p
  • A scenic uphill walk followed by a nice new perspective over the area.
  • I must warn you, the stairs are pretty steep. We were huffing and puffing by the time we'd climbed to the top of the hill. But the views and tranquility here......its worth it.
