Thursday July 9 at 18.00 – 24.00
Conference dinner at Älvsborgs Fortress starting with a 1 hours boat tour.
The boat will leave from Lilla Bommen (by the Opera House) at 18.00 and take you on a boat trip in the archipelago for approx. 1 hour.  Älvsborgs Fortress has an astonishing history starting in the 17th Century until modern time. On three occasions the Danish stood at the gate with no good attentions – luckily they had, each occasion, to sail away without any success. During the time that the fortress was used as a prison, several of the most fearful criminals spent their time on the island. In the late 19th Century the fortress became an attraction for the residents of Gothenburg where they went to breathe fresh air, smoke cigars and drink the traditional Swedish liqueur Punsch.

Price per person: SEK 450
Must be pre-booked on the registration to obtain a ticket.
