Come cellebrate with us

National day and reopening of the Ships hall and brand-new Café!

On June 6, it's happening!

There aren't many places on Hisingen to celebrate the Swedish National Day. This year, we're making a big deal out of it by celebrating National Day with both a salute and a flag ceremony. We're combining this with the inauguration of our newly renovated Ship’s Hall and the brand-new café!

Why not enjoy a brewed coffee and an ice cream with us?

In addition to our guided tours (which can be booked via the website here), we have porcelain painting where you can create your own China-inspired bowl. Why not dress up and take a photo with our amazing Supercargo? Or settle into the drawing- or reading corner? We also have face painting and a tattoo studio, with an age limit of 1 year, and with parental consent!

We're celebrating National Day together with Älvsborg, Oscar II's Fort, and GKSS in Långedrag. In Långedrag, you can visit our tent with a shop and information, and you'll also have the chance to meet our bosun and carpenter who will show and sail one of our ship's boats! GKSS has a full program where you can try sailing, a classic regatta, police, coast guard, Amf 4 combat boat display, and much more!

Styrsöbolaget will run with the boat Kungsö between Stenpiren, Eriksberg, Nya Älsborg, and Långedrag during the day. A ferry ride costs 50 SEK, and children under 12 travel free. See schedule below.

If you like salutes, you'll have the opportunity to witness several during the day, as it's not just us firing a salute at 11:00 AM and 5:00 PM; Oscar II's Fort will also fire at 12:30 PM, 2:00 PM, and 3:00 PM. Skansen Lejonet will fire at 1:00 PM and Nya Älvsborg at 02.00 PM as well.

For the GKSS National Day program, see here.

Remember the sailboat rescue in April last year?

07 May 2024

On the 25th of April, off the coast of France just after 4pm, a distress call was sent by the MRCC regarding a sailing vessel that had lost its rudder and was drifting. Being the closest ship to the sailing boat, Götheborg answered the call.
