Guided tour - The Old Navy Shipyard incl. boat trip
Come along on an exciting tour out to Karlskrona's heart of the UNESCO world heritage, The Old Shipyard on Lindholmen in Karlskrona.
BeskrivningThe heart of Karlskrona’s world heritage lies in the old shipyard which has been left untouched since its glory days back in the 18th century. The last centuries most of the navy’s dockyard production has been moved to the ”new dockyard” located on Trossö.
The shipyard on Lindholmen has played an important role through time by creating ropes, repairing and servicing ships in Polhemsdockan – Sweden’s oldest dry dock, which is still in use today.
The area is filled with historic scenes and building which all our visitors get to experience during this tour.
The guide is a legitimate rope maker from VHFK (Historic shipyard compound in Karlskrona) who has great knowledge about how the shipyard has been of use.
The archipelago boat M/F Ljungskär will depart from Fisktorget in Karlskrona which will take you out to Lindholmen. This gives you a small taste as of what Karlskrona archipelago has to offer!

There's a limited amount of people that can visit Lindholmen at a time, so it might be good to book in advance.
When you book your visit to the old shipyard, every participant will have to give away their full name, person number or pass number and also their nationality. For everyone older than 18 years old, you need to bring along some sort of id on the tour.
This is solely a security matter, because the old shipyard is a restricted military area.
