In the impressive fortress at Vättern, the king, parliament and government would have been housed in the event of the victims of the 19th century.

Stroll around picturesque Karlsborg, which is scenic between Vättern and Lake Constance. A guided tour of the Karlsborg Fortress is on today's program. Here is an exciting tour back to the 19th century. The great fortress was not completely completed until 1907 and by then the construction had been going on for 88 years during the reign of four kings. If the weather permits bathing is recommended, as there is water in almost all around Karlsborg. In the evening, a 2-course dinner is served at Idas Brygga, which is the area's best restaurant.
Rested you eat a good breakfast and then it's time to enjoy that bike ride back to Töreboda. We recommend the same way back, the southern road around Lake Viken. Please stop during the trip and enjoy your lunch package before the trip ends in Töreboda.
