On the beautiful island Marstrand there has been a village since the beginning of the 13th century! It has traditionally been an important place for trading and fishing.
The adorable cobbled streets and amazing wooden houses are truly special. Marstrand is well known for the walking paths, great swimming opportunities, shopping, sailing competitions, cafés & restaurants in the port … there is something for every taste!
The Carlsten’s Fortress sits on top of the island – giving Marstrand it’s famous silhouette. You will have a memorable experience of a fortress that was built during the 18th and 19th centuries – by prisoners sentenced to ”Marstrand-labour”.
After having spent three hours on Marstrand it’s time to head back to Gothenburg.
