Saturday guided tours
If you plan to stay over the weekend we would like to recommend a guided tour either to the The Fortress of Kungsholmen or to the Old Navy Shipyard. Both tours will show several World Heritage objects.
The Fortress of Kungsholmen has guarded the sea entrance to Karlskrona since 1680 and is today a part of Karlskronas World Heritage site. The tour begins with a boat trip followed by a guided tour of the fortress. At the fortress there is, for example, a beautiful park with exotic plants, a small museum and a unique round harbour. This tour welcomes both Swedish and foreign citizens to the fort, which is still a military area. Saturday 10.00-14.00. Price: 120 SEK / person.
The Old Navy Shipyard tour includes a unique performance of ropemakers in action in the Rope walk from 1692 together and you will also see "The five finger docks" and the Old Mast Crane. Saturday 14.00-16.00. Price 80 SEK/person.
All visitors must leave name and passport number when booking, as the tours are on military restricted areas. All nationalities are welcome!
Please send a reply to email@example.com if you are interested in any of the tours.
