Fortress island Kastellet

Fortress island located in the entrance of Karlshamn's harbour. The entire island is in fact a fortress dating back to the 17th century when feuds with the Danish were common. Today Kastellet is a beautiful, exciting and easy-to-reach destination for visitors of all ages. For many years Kastellet has provided the scenery and venue for a popular local theatre perfomance during summer time. In the summer season you can visit the island by boat from the inner harbour in Karlshamn.

Do & See

To get a sense of what Karlshamn was like in the past you should head for the cultural quarter and visit Karlshamn's Museum, Skottsbergska Gården and the Punsch Museum - here it feels as if time has stood still for over a century. If you would rather get in touch with modern-day Karlshamn you might like to head for the nearby art gallery, explore the mysteries of science at Kreativum Science Center, try fishing on the river Mörrum, visit Karlshamn's beautiful archipelago or enjoy the freedom of the outdoors at Eriksberg Wildlife Park.
