Oscar II Fort

An old defense fortress built in the early 1900’s.

Oscar II Fort is located on Västberget in the Gothenburg inlet and was built between 1899 and 1907. The fort would serve as a modern defense for the city and as a replacement of the much older Älvsborg Fortress.

The fort has been untouched since the Second World War and is now a museum.

If you are interested in visiting Oscar II Fort for a guided tour, you will need to make a reservation. It is important to know is that the museum only accept reservations from groups of minimum 10 people.

A few times a year, the fort is open to visitors without pre-booking. Please see their website or their Facebook page for more information.
