The old town square

The old town square


The town of Kungälv is situated on the west coast of Sweden, just north of Göteborg.
The long coastline and beautiful archipelago makes it a perfect place for sailing, fishing and swimming. Kungälv has fields, rocks and woods with designated rambling paths and cycling tracks, golf courses and tennis courts. In the wildlife reserve of Svartedalen you can fish for trout and salmon. (Fishing licences available on site).
There´s a lot to do and a lot to see. Enjoy the scenic beauty, the events and the entertainment! Kungälv has a superb position by the river Nordre Älv.
The ruins of the fortress, Bohus Fästning, are a proud monument of the fascinating history of the town, which dates back a thousand years. The well preserved old town centre consists of Torget (the old square), the church and the cobbled streets Östra gatan and Västra gatan, along which there are wooden houses, built centuries ago.
The island in the river - Fästningsholmen - is an open invitation to a picnic. In Kungälv you will find a good selection of shops and modern shopping centres as well as an open air market. There are cafés and restaurants and large car parks.
The galleries in Kungälv put on interesting exhibitions and artists and craftsmen sell their creations. You are welcome to visit the local library, where you will find a weekly newspaper and magazines in English.
