Description

The fortress island Kastellet is an old defense facility from the 17th century when Danish feuds were common. Today, the island is an exciting and beautiful destination for visitors of all ages.

Kastellet is located in the middle of Karlshamn's inner harbor, only a five-minute boat ride from the city center. During low season there are free boat trips to the island.

Frisholmen, as the Kastellet is also called, were built in 1675 when Denmark declared war on Sweden. The castle was in use for nearly 200 years, but from the very beginning was quite vulnerable to artillery from the surrounding rock outcrops on land. The castle is a real gem for anyone who has imagination and a child's mind intact.

Saturdays and Sundays during low season the boat trip to Kastellet is free of charge. The Waffle Cafe is open for visitors. For current timetable, see link to Website. Low season: 18/5-16/6 and 24/8-8/9.

Monday to Friday during low season you can also go to Kastellet at 13:30, return home 15:50 (see External link). Please note that this tour is not free of charge. During weekdays, the Waffle Cafe is not open, so bring a picnic basket.
