Marstrand - society town with a violent past

At the top of the Marstrand island lies the Carlsten fortress. For more than 300 years this huge grey guardian has been protecting the small wooden town below. The fortress used to be associated with war, imprisonment and fear. Nowadays it is used for fabulous feasts and conferences and is part of the well known silhouette of the island Marstrand.

Every year, thousands of people comes here to experience the guided tours with visits in the path of sighs, the execution place, the kitchen of the legendary prisoner Lasse-maja and the fortress church. The largest arrangements in the summer are the fortress games, “the medieval journey”, galas and concerts.

Price: 300 SEK/person, return trip.
