Marstrand
The Essential
Recommended
This 13C market town developed in the 16C to become a trading centre for herring fishing. In the 19C, King Oskar II transformed Marstrand into a fashionable seaside town. With its attractive and tastefully decorated timber houses, narrow winding streets lined with shops and restaurants, and busy marina, Marstrand is the best-known summer resort in the Bohuslän region. Major sailing regattas are also held here.
