Disappointed with Haga? Climb here. It is good for your health, the tiny fortress is quite nice - and you will have some opportunities to admire the views while catching your breath ;). Still, nothing to write home about.

The long set of stone steps (around 200) tests your conditioning, but this magnificent redoubt and its interesting history, combined with the stunning views, make for a fine hour's exercise as part of your Gothenburg experience.

This is worth the climb. Its free. It takes maybe 20mins to get to the fort. Fort is closed. There is benches & picnic tables. Good views of the city. Go on a cloudless day

We visited the surroundings of the castle at night and the view over the city was wonderful. Very peaceful, relaxing and quiet atmosphere and it worth take a short walk from the Haha district to enjoy the view.

If you take the stairs, there are about 200 of them - just to the base of the tower. Take your time even if you're fit. If you go up the switchback path, you walk more. SAt the top, the tower is worth the small...More
