Marstrand at Sunset - Anna Gardell Ericson Watercolour, 65 x 49 cm.

Marstrand island is a must-see. Located just off the Bohuslän west coast, it’s Sweden's version of Hollywood as the playground of royalty and celebrities, boasting a rich, intriguing history. Visit grand Carlsten's Fortress, looking down across the idyllic ocean or indulge in fresh seafood, served-up in one of the many exquisite restaurants.

This impressive stone fortress on Marstrand Island was originally built by King Carl X of Sweden in 1658 to defend the newly acquired province of Bohuslän from invaders.
