Owner description: The Citadel is one of the best-preserved 16th century fortresses in the Nordic countries, built by King Christian III of Denmark between 1549 and 1559. In the 1800s the Citadel was used as a prison for convicts with life sentences and for vagrants. Then it was converted to a women's prison that was in use until 1940. There is a cafe in the grounds and you can fish in the moat. There's no admission for the area around the fortress but if you'd like to go inside the Citadel, you'd need to go on a guidad tour. It costs 75 SEK for adult and 40 SEK for children (7-15)
Useful Information: Stairs / elevator, Wheelchair access

It was an amazing experience walking inside the Landskrona Citadell in Sweden. I only read about castles in storybooks and watched in classical movies. It is one of the best preserved fortress in Northern Europe. You will see inner moat, corner towers, barricades and the buildings in the courtyard. f you go around outside, you will how the fortress was defended because of Graen, a defense system of embarkments built in the shallow water outside the deep-water harbor

This is one of Scandinavias best kept citadell from this era. The moats are especially interesting and you visitors will be inspired by a visit to the dungeon. With its location close to the Öresund it is well placed and a great place to visit for the whole family. Anyone interested in fishing can buy fishing cards....

Fishing, running, chilling, watching birds, sheep or livestock. This must be paradise.
