Walk trough a piece of westcoast inland
After a walk trough the local suburbia, take a jump into the woods and experience a typical forest of the westcoast (maybe even Sweden?). Take the local bus "Kungarundan" from the busstation to "Olseröd" and the final station. Walk trough the villa area across the street for about 10 min towards the old farm. Then just head towards the trees. Or just ask people for the way to a good hike!
My home town
"An old town with lots of history"
Kungälv was a border town from the beginning. Here the Danes, Norwegians and Swedes met some times in peace and sometimes in war. The old fortress of Bohus was started building in 1308 and is still an impressive landmark. Around the fortress the town grew slowly through the years until around 1950 when homes and industry boosted. Today Kungälv is the home of 12.000 people and has a large numbers of companies.

Norwegian history in Sweden
Kungalv is a town just around 20 kilometres north of Gothenburg and so, very easy to reach from there. It lies where Nordre River meets Gota River - the latter is the one running through Gothenburg. It is a shame that not more tourists visit here, as they would find one of the biggest fortress ruins in Scandinavia as well as a nice wooden town centre. Most people who visit Kungalv municipality often do so without knowing it, through the fantastic archipelago with nearby Marstrand as the most famous spot. Shame they miss the town itself. It was founded in what was then Norway - the border with Sweden ran along the middle of Hising Island on the way to Gothenburg - and the first version of the town was actually five kilometres down the Nordre River which you see in this picture. Later, the town grew towards the fortress instead, The fortress is a huge stone defense system against Swedish invasions where you can see just about everything happening on both rivers and no one has any trouble understanding the strategic significance of its placement.
