Kungälv is completely unique with its fortress, Bohus, which has a long and interesting history. Bohus Fortress has played a key role as both a castle and a defense unit for the Nordic countries - but did you know that it has also been a dreaded prison for more than 500 years?
In Kungälv, the old wooden town mingles with newly built districts. The shopping centre Kongahälla can be found in central Kungälv. Here you will find great shopping and lots of cafes and restaurants.
You can walk to the Fontin nature reserve directly from the hotel. Walk through beautiful forests, pastures and visit the lake Svarte Mosse. The Bohusleden hiking trail runs through Fontin as well.
Do not miss nearby Marstrand which is located on two islands with a ferry in between. The buildings on the island of Marstrand have been described as the most beautiful in the world - with Carlsten Fortress perched on the mountain and the old wooden town's block below. During the summer, sailors and holidaymakers get together on the quay. In the neighborhood on land there are small shops, cafes, and restaurants, all worth a visit.
Ah, Gothenburg with Liseberg, Ullevi, the harbors and trams, amazing nightlife, and lousy jokes. You can drive to the city pulse in Gothenburg in less than 15 minutes. If you prefer to take the bus, no. 4 stops directly outside the hotel and takes you to central Gothenburg in just under 25 minutes.
