    Bohus Fortress has been the scene for a violent power struggle between the Nordic countries ever since the Middle Ages. The large fortress has borne witness to many a battle over the years and has been seized by both the Norwegians and the Danes before being taken by its current Swedish owners. The last siege took place as recently as the 18th century.

    Besides providing defence, the fortress was also used as a prison for close to 500 years and it was also a castle. Today it offers exciting, family-friendly events including everything from medieval feasts through to historical military re-enactments.

    Stroll around in Tudor splendour

    Tjolöholm Castle is a magnificent building in a stately setting which is actually a lot younger than it appears, bringing a touch of Tudor class to the region. The beautiful castle may look just like something from the British Renaissance period, but it wasn't complete until the beginning of the 20th century. Wander around its beautiful gardens, which are neatly trimmed in a French style in the areas closest to the castle before giving way to a more park-like landscape. The elegant setting right by the sea is a great spot to enjoy sweeping views.

    After a walk around the castle and museum, or once the children have burnt off all their energy in the little play village, why not stop and enjoy a coffee at the castle's café?
