Skansen Kronan

The old fortification offers a striking view of the city.

Skansen Kronan is a fortress situated on the hill Risåsberget in the Haga district. It was designed by Erik Dahlberg and completed in 1700.

When Skansen Kronan was finished it had 23 canons and was ready for battle, but was never attacked by enemies. During the 19th century it turned into a prison and later on an emergency residency. During the 20th century it was a military museum.

Inside, the unique hall of Skansen Kronan can be used for weddings, parties, conferences and more, all while enjoying a panorama view of the city.
