Cozy and familiar

Many of our guests appreciate the relaxing environment of the fortress and the familiar and cozy feeling it brings. A couple who recently visited us gave this review: “Welcoming, homely, comfortable beds and a fantastic breakfast! And the location is unbeatable“. The fortress has an exciting environment to explore and we have many families with children who stay with us. The proximity to the beach and jetties as well as the city center with shops and restaurants is also much appreciated.

Sustainable travel

At Fästningens we want to contribute to a sustainable tourism industry. We encourage our guests to choose sustainable transport methods such as train or bike. The train station in Varberg is only about 600 metres from the fortress and there are many train connections here, both north- and southbound. In Varberg you can rent a bike to easily experience more of the town and its surroundings. Or you can go for a cycling holiday! Many of our guests arrive by bike during their travel along the coastal biking path Kattegattleden. At Fästningens you can park your bike and store it overnight at no extra cost.
