This is an amazing stop for children and grown ups alike. A beautiful fortress with an air of adventure, There are a lot of simple but entertaining activities to try out- archery, horse shoe throwing, riding a tournament wood horse on rails, pulling a raft across a pond etc etc. And add to that prison holes, pillory, an executioner and you have enough to keep the kids busy for 2 or 3 hours. But there are also å lot of informative Signs to explain the history og the place and the buildings.

This was built by the Norwegians in the 13 hundreds when their southern border was located here. Still in good condition with its high walls. Well worth a visit.

Saw the place as we drove by. Curiosity won out, and we stopped. So thankful we did. While much has been destroyed, there was a ton of things to see and experience, with plenty of activities for children to do along the way. Wonderful opportunity to see a well built fortress, in a wonderful location! This is one of a few places where you can spend an hour, or an entire day.

I visited the Bohus fortress during my recent stay in Gothenburg. And I liked it very much. The place can be easily reached by public transport (Green Express Bus, which goes every 10-15 minutes, stops across the bridge from the fortress, for the Gothenburg city tariff). The fortress does not look so big from outside but you can easily spend there 2-3 hours, if you want to visit all the parts, read all the panels (there could be more of them) or just take a rest while looking over the countryside (there is a marvelous view from the fortress). The fortress has an interesting history that is closely linked to the history of the whole country. In the main courtyard, there were some events organized primarily for children but the number of those attending these events was reasonable and the activities did not interfere with the other of us visiting the place. All in all, I enjoyed my afternoon in Bohus and would recommend the fortress to all those who are interested in history and nature and like to discover places on their own.

Very well preserved fortress and all of it is open to explore. There were only a few people there when we visited on a Tuesday afternoon.
