The fortified city

In the search of Gothenburg’s old fortifications

The old Gothenburg was built as fortress, with wide ramparts, deep moats and high walls, all to prevent the enemy from taking the city. The walls and ramparts were demolished in the 19th century, but a surprising amount remains, if you know where to look. Join us on a walk in search of Gothenburg’s old fortifications.

The guided city tour takes place in collaboration with the City of Gothenburg, SFV, Higab and Goteborg & Co. In english.
