  • Well worth a visit! Large well preserved as have much to tell. The historical tour and also the hunt for gold reserve is recommended when you have children. Good defence restaurant even to the public within the walls. Soldier home's restaurant and Cafe. Several other shops around the square. The Church with its chandelier and military museum are worth visiting.

  • A note, take a guided tour of the tick, really professional and educative, enhances the light and sound effects so it feels them if one was the war on ticks

  • 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 😉
  • nice walks around here
  • Excellent vacation destination!
  • A hearty old fortress on a promontory out into Lake Vättern from the 1800 's which is very well preserved and worth a visit. There is a lot to see, and you need a bit of time if you want to see everything, including a museum and if you want to walk around the area and on the old ramparts which runs around the fortress. If I remember correctly so well used part of the area still by the defence but you can walk around almost everywhere you want. VA where July 2013.

  • Great fun to visit karlsborg fortress with the grandchildren. I myself actually lived at the fortress during my first year as a kid. Dad was military and had official residence in this splendid building. Also, I am born on the garrison hospital out on the Vanäs Promontory, and baptized in the garrison church. Some vague memories still linger from the early 50 's. Remember especially miltärmusikens parades around the fortress area. Moved from karlsborg 1961, so this was a welcome reunion with wife and grandchildren.
