  • 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.

The view from the top is pretty good and would be even better on a totally clear day.
  • Amazing view of most of the city. Very well worth the climb.
  • Beautiful view of the city from this very old outpost located in central gothenburg. Also a place for late night summer parties Sometimes organized and sometines spontaneous 😃
