Lonely Planet review
Lying between Postgatan and Kronhusgatan, Kronhuset is the city’s oldest secular building, a former arsenal built in Dutch style between 1642 and 1654. It was here that Karl X held the disastrous riksdag (parliament) in 1660 – he died while it was in session. Kronhusbodarna, across the courtyard from Kronhuset, houses several workshops making and selling pottery, silverware, glass and textiles. It’s also home to the wicked Göteborgs Choklad & Karamellfabrik , a candy factory-cum-shop where the sticky treats include skumklubba (marshmallows on a stick, dipped in dark chocolate and desiccated coconut).
