Overview
More
The Citadel is one of the best-preserved 16th century fortresses in the Nordic countries, built by King Christian III of Denmark between 1549 and 1559. In the 1800s the Citadel was used as a prison for convicts with life sentences and for vagrants. Then it was converted to a women's prison that was in use until 1940. There is a cafe in the grounds and you can fish in the moat. There's no admission for the area around the fortress but if you'd like to go inside the Citadel, you'd need to go on a guidad tour. It costs 75 SEK for adult and 40 SEK for children (7-15)

The setting for this old fortress is quite lovely and peaceful. Unfortunately, we didn't realize that you can't go inside the buildings without a guided tour (offered during the summer or by prior arrangement).

If you are in the area, it is definitely worth a look. We stayed in Borstahusen, so walked through as a shortcut to get to the centre of Landskrona. It is certainly a very pretty area, with gorgeous grass and a very quiet, relaxed atmosphere....More

Nice castle but later used as prison! The water around the castle was full of jellyfish. The locals love to be here for the beach and the park. A good way to spend the Sunday afternoon.
