Skansen Kronan Overview
Located on the Risasberget in the Haga district Skansen Kronan is one of the best places to see in Gothenburg which offers superb views of the city and the blue waters of the harbour. Built in 1641, the Skansen Kronan was used as a defence redoubt to protect Gothenburg from Danish invasion.

As you walk around the six-sided shape and dappled granite walls of the fortress you cannot but appreciate how much effort it took for the soldiers to transport the stone up the hill which was required for building the structure of Skansen Kronan.

Location: Skansberget, Leijonsparres Väg 15, 413 04 Göteborg, Sweden
