More information and tips are available at kattegattleden.se 38 Photography: Hanna Larsson Kattegattleden continues along Kungsbackafjorden. At Båt och Sjöfartsmuseet maritime museum, just below the church in Onsala, you can find out all about “Lasse i Gatan”, the king’s privateer Lars Gathenhielm, who was born here in 1689. Royalty and Gothenburg’s high society came to Särö for amusement in the early twentieth century. Make a detour to Särö Västerskog, where you can walk beside the sea. When you have left the seaside resort, you cycle alongside the former Säröbanan railway track, which runs parallel to the sea. Cliffs, lush forest, bays and marinas line the path and there are plenty of places to swim. When you start approaching Gothenburg, the path passes Nya Varvet docklands, Klippans kulturreservat historical district and Röda Stens Konsthall art gallery. At Järntorget square you head towards Gothenburg city centre, passing picnic paradise Kungsparken and Stora Teatern. The final stretch goes alongside Trädgårdsföreningen, one of Europe’s most wellpreserved parks from the 1800s, before you reach your final destination at Drottningtorget by the Central Station.
