Conference excursion

When?:​ Wednesday 26 June, 12.30 - 19.00


 

Forty-five minutes north from Gothenburg, in the finest part of the western Archipelago, lies the beautiful island of Marstrand. Apart from its beautiful location along the rocky Swedish coast, this place is particularly worth a visit because of its caves and the seventeenth-century `Carlstens Fortress'. Incidentally, it has been rumored that it is one of John's favorite places near Gothenburg.

 

As the conference excursion, we will make a trip to Marstrand. After the scientific morning program of the Wednesday, two buses will travel along the West-Swedish coast-line towards the island of Marstrand. After a short ride on the ferry, you will have the opportunity to explore the islands very fine hiking paths that will take you across the island. Also, we have booked a guided tour through Carlstens Fortress.

 

Other things to do on the island, is to take a walk through the `old-town' of Marstrand, with its many shops and coffee (fika) houses. We will arrive back in Gothenburg around 19:00. Please see the following links for more information.
