LYSEKIL, Sweden Cruise Port

Lysekil is a locality with about 7,600 inhabitants in the western part of Sweden. Found in the Bohuslan Province, it also acts as the seat of the Lysekil Municipality, Vastra Gotaland County. While it was historically a small fishing village, through the 18th and 19th centuries it became more of a hub for independent fishing industries and commercial shipping for fishing products as well as for general goods. After the initial industrial shipping and factory boom subsided, the locality became known as a premiere spa and bathing resort and their tourism grew throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Today, tourism still accounts for a large part of the region’s economy. The sea surrounds the town on three sides among a number of fjords, islands and smaller islets. The harbors and connecting boardwalk, amid quaint wooden cottages and houses, are often bustling with activity and have a wide variety of restaurants, cafes and shops.

 

  • Lysekil Church is very large and stands atop a steep hill. More than 1,000 people can fit comfortably inside and the view from the top of the high towers offers a view of the town in its entirety.
     
  • The Havets Hus sea aquarium displays a choice selection of the flora and fauna found in the Western Sea. Its tunnel aquarium contains over 140,000 liters of water.
     
  • To see a marvelous collection of ceramics, paintings and photographs, many done by local artists, be sure to check out the high-quality Galleri Tint.
     
  • Gamlestan is a small neighborhood in Lysekil that is around 200 years old. The streets, houses, gardens and people all give off a wholesome, small-town feeling.
