Overview

Sjömanstornet (The Mariner Tower) is situated at the Maritime Museum, just next to Stigbergstorget. The tower was built in memory of deceased marines of the First World War. The inscriptions of their names and the ships they served on are at the foot of the tower. The tower was inaugurated in 1933. It is 49 meters tall (160 feet) and reaches to 63 meters (206 feet) over sea level. There is no lift, so you have to walk up all 139 steps. At the top of the tower stands the five meter (16 feet) statue Kvinna vid havet ("Woman by the Sea"). To get here, take trams 3, 4 or 9 to Stigbergstorget.
