Create an itinerary including Skansen Kronan
Skansen Kronan ("the Crown Sconce") is a redoubt on the hill Risåsberget, in the Haga district of Gothenburg, Sweden.

The fortress and its twin, Skansen Lejonet, were built to protect the city of Gothenburg against possible Danish attack, and thus had a similar purpose to the sea fort of New Älvsborg, which was built around the same time.

  • I enjoyed the panorama, but didn't det inside. There is a park around yet with few benches. The restaurant was fully reserved, so I guess it's a popular place.

  • Best place if you want to enjoy the beautiful view of Gothenburg city, after climbing the hill. castle is open for visitors and there is no entrance fee. . Apparently, they consider turning inside of the castle to a restaurant bar which seemed nice. But it was not opened when I had been there ! There are cannons and cannon balls inside.
  • Fantastic place to spend time. You will get the best view of the city. A must visit place, specially when the sun is shining.
