Great views over the city and a nice tranquil place to relax. Steps leading up were rewarded with a nice breeze, green trees and great views. All in all a nice stop on a stroll through the city.

Excellent historical building, with a marvellous view of Gothenburg below. Many many steps going up on the city side, but we walked down a gently sloping path, which was much easier!

Climbed upteen steps to have a coffee in the cafe at the top to overlook the city. However there was a private function happening so had to make do with a windy wet visit outside instead. Good views but I wouldn't waste your breathe.
