Älvsborgs Fortress

The Älvsborgs Fortress is a popular day trip destination. Strömma Skärgårdsbåtar take you on a tour through the inner and the outer harbour and out to the fortress. Experience the fortress rich with history.

On the island you have plenty of time to stroll around the fortress. Join one of the guided tours and take some pictures of the view. Join us on a surprising journey through time from the 1500s to today. Let yourself be “caught”, inspired and puzzled to meet such. Christian IV of Denmark or Admiral Peder should Skiöld which incidentally not come from Denmark.

And who on earth is Christen Andersson? But what are they really doing here , and especially now in the 21 th century? This and much more you get to know if you are booking a living history performance at Älvsborg Castle.

The fortress has a café with home bakery, sandwiches and a lighter lunch menu.

The island is perfect for a stroll in the sun and a nice place for a picnic.
