When you stay at Fästningens Vandrarhem you are bang in the centre of Varberg's historical legacy and a stone's throw from the old spa resort quarters with Kallbadhuset, Societetsparken and Varmbadhuset.
The beach promenade starts below the fortress and winds its way along the edge of the beach all the way to Apelviken and offers new nature experiences every day all the year round. The town centre with its quaint shops and cafés is only a 10 minute walk away.
The hostel itself is housed in three buildings: Hus10, Hus13 and Fängelset (the prison). We are often told how clean and tidy it is and we do our utmost to ensure all our guests have a great stay.
There is also a restaurant in Hus13, and further up in the fortress grounds you can find Halland's cultural historical museum. On sunny days, the lawn outside the reception is very popular among those who wish to sit outdoors and have breakfast.
