Marstrand.



Marstrand, the oldest town in Bohuslän next to
the famous Kungahälla, mentioned as early as in
beginning of the 13th century and destroyed by the
Hansards in 1368. During the following years,
owing to the herring fishery, Marstrand was one of
the richest towns of the North. During summer a
very gay and motley life unfolds itself here, for
Marstrand is the most frequented seaside resort in
Sweden. The fortress looks now as it did hundreds
of years ago. From the Tower, which is 128 feet high,
is a splendid view of the archipelago. The Marstrand
bathingetablishment was founded in 1822. The now
existing buildings are however of a later date.
Among the hotels may be mentioned the partly
reconstructed Turisthotel with view of the harbour,
the Stadshotel and St. Eriks Hotel. Restaurant
Alphyddan, near the club-house and bath-house park,
commands from its upper dining-hall a view of
the sea.

There is a chute or switch back into the water at the
Bath establishment and a lighter full of sand so that
guests can lie in the sun. The water contains between
2 and 3½ % salt. At the warm bath-house there are
seaweed, mud and soap massage-baths, turkish and
electric baths also Nauheimer and Kreuznacherbaths.
