  • Interesting site with much history. Nice museum of military history to be interesting. Small cozy coffee looking at the square. Small creepy old hospital in the Woods after dark. Tips is to rent a bike and pedal around for a whole day in the nice environment (However, one can think that it is just over with cycling on Cobbles).

  • A fascinating guided tour with bombs and grenades where you had an experience of how it felt to run sometimes embrasures and guns. A well-read guide piloted us through the fortress and its history, and a young Stefan Sauk was with us in several places. The tour ended in the beautiful church which would have acted as the parliamentary Chamber in the event of war. Of course we missed not that this is the only Swedish Church with a naval flag to torndekoration. Well worth a visit!

  • 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.
