  • Do You like history? This is where you should go! Lots and lots of awesome stuff to indulge in, military history of 🇸🇪 very interesting fortress. Well worth the visit! Make sure you spend some time here, there are a lot of thing to see! And do just walk around the fortress it's amazing 😉
  • Excellent vacation destination!
  • nice walks around here
  • Completely wonderful. Have grown up in karlsborg, played at the fortress, cycled/gone through "dark time", confirmed in the garrison church, went to school near fallskärmsjägarskolan, really experienced the fortress from within. As an adult, I realize what an adventure it was. Karlsborg is a magical place. We should promote it better. My husband felt absolutely amazing when we were there a long time ago.
