“Great view with an effort”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2012

It's a great view from up here and you can also visit the tower itself for 40sek you will also find an cafe at the top of the hill.
Please bear in mind that it's a challenge to climb up, specially if you have small kids or some sort of disease.

“Interesting city view, beware of the stairs!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2012

A great view awaits you from this old watch tower, but the climb up there can take your breath away.

“The top tower”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

On a hill, an old fortress building overlooks the surrounding. It is a bit of an effort to claim up the stairs, but once there the view is very pretty, even though it is only possible to see it outside the tower, as it is closed to the public.
