When you stay at Fästningens B&B/Hostel you are right in the centre of Varberg's historical legacy, and close to the old spa resort quarters with Kallbadhuset, Societetsparken and Varmbadhuset.
In Varberg you will always find something to do. The town offers you shopping, sport activities, museum, beaches and much more just a few minutes walk from our accommodation.
At Fästningens B&B/Hostel we offer comfortable beds in old and charming houses. In the 18th and 19th centuries there was a bakery, a hospital and a prison in the houses. Nowadays they are used for Bed & Breakfast and hostel.
Long before the town or the fortress existed, beacons were lit on the rock when enemies approached. It is a powerful feeling to look out over the immense Kattegat sea from the fortress walls. Just as powerful as it is to stand on the beach and look up at the well-preserved Middle Ages castle.
It is impossible not to feel the pulse of history when you walk up the well-worn cobblestone path toward Varberg's Fortress. The immense archway leads into Borggården, the castle courtyard. And this is where you can find Fästningens Vandrarhem.
