Our group of friends from the U.S. thoroughly enjoyed this historic structure ... the views from here are amazing learning about the history of how this fort was used was really cool.

Great views over the city and a nice tranquil place to relax. Steps leading up were rewarded with a nice breeze, green trees and great views. All in all a nice stop on a stroll through the city.

Excellent historical building, with a marvellous view of Gothenburg below. Many many steps going up on the city side, but we walked down a gently sloping path, which was much easier!

Climb up to the skansen Lejonet is amazing, you get in contact with the nature and by the end such a good surprise, a take breath landscape!

Climbed upteen steps to have a coffee in the cafe at the top to overlook the city. However there was a private function happening so had to make do with a windy wet visit outside instead. Good views but I wouldn't waste your breathe.

It's worth a stroll around this building if you are passing, but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit as there is not much to see, the views outside are pretty good though.
