house in Fiskebäckskil
Fiskebäckskil is an old and genuine shipping community with narrow
sidestreets and houses decorated with fancy carpentry work. In the
middle of the 19th century the inhabitants gave up fishing and became
freight-skippers instead. They built themselves big and fine houses and
were thus prepared when the seaside resort era started at the turn of
the century. Fiskebäckskil became elegant and fashionable and
still host many summer inhabitants from our capital. The artist Carl
Wilhelmsson originated from here and his studio is preserved and
inhabited by his relatives. Reproductions of his paintings can be seen
at the Gullmarsstrand Hotel on the waterfront. The food is good and the
bar upstairs makes you feel like you are on a ship's bridge at
night-time. Stroll the town's narrow lines for an hour or two, enjoy
the picturesque car-free surroundings and a meal at "Captain Sture", a
restaurant with oldfashioned fishing interiors nearby the church (built
1772). For an extensive night-life, take the 10 minute ferryboat to Lysekil
