Overview
More
Sjömanstornet (The Seaman's Tower) at the Maritime Museum (sjofartsmuseum), next to Stigbergstorget was built in memory of deceased marines of the First World War. Their names and the ships they served on are inscribed at the foot of the tower, which was inaugurated in 1933. Visitors have to walk up 139 steps to the top of the tower where the five-metre statue Kvinna vid havet ("Woman by the Sea) stands.

We had a banquet dinner here, for about 60 people, and the service and food were impeccable. For a starter we had shrimp with caviar that was simply outstanding. The main course was filet of cod with a lovely cream sauce, perfectly cooked and presented....More
