Coming to Göteborg

by Elena77

Hello everyone,
we're going to spend a few days in Göteborg at the end of September and we'll arrive at Nils Ericson Terminalen/ Main Station. Can anyone recommend a (not too expensive) hotel in that area? Any special "things to do" tips for Göteborg?
Thanx a lot,
Elena

We were just there two weeks ago and stayed at the Radisson SAS directly across the street from the train station. There were several nice hotels within 1-2 blocks, easy walk, from the train station. Come out the end nearest the train platforms rather than down at the bus station end. You will see the Radisson directly in front and another nice hotel just to the right.

Visit Universeum :) http://www.universeum.se/index.php?lang=en
If the weather is nice you might wanna let your inner child out at Liseberg. Read more at http://www.liseberg.com/Liseberg/Engelska/Startsida.htm?wbc_purpose=Basic&WBCMODE=PresentationUnpublished&strFlash=0

Yes, the Opera and the Robinson are both budget hotels close to the Central station. I think I've got links to them on my Göteborg page. SAS Radisson is a lot more expensive and is a bit so so with the service these days compared to the price...

As for things to do, yes the Universeum is a very nice museum about Swedish flora and fauna, tropical fish, the rainforest and more. Nearby is the Liseberg amusement park which is still open weekends in September. Scandinavia's nicest amusement park in my (and many others') opinion.

Also don't miss a trip into the archipelago. Catch the tram to the end stop called Saltholmen and use the same ticket out on one of the boats to Styrsö or other islands (or just stay on the boat and go around the islands).

Coffee places are also great in the city with places competing about the size of Swedish cinnamon buns. Haga Nygata and Vasagatan as well as Linnégatan are great for that (and Haga also nice for shopping) and Linnégatan is also a nice and relaxed nightlife street. You can read more tips on my page. Do you have any particular interests? If it is art, Göteborg has one of the best Nordic art museums and also a good design museum. There are also good maritime museums since it is Scandinavia's biggest port.

Thank you all very much! You've helped us a lot!

By the way, we've booked at Hotel Opera now!:-)
Greetings,

Travel Tips for Göteborg

Paddan tour!! A must if you...

by lillapenguin

Paddan tour!! A must if you want to learn about the history and culture of this city. And a great way to see the city. Paddan tours start from Kungsportsplatsen and is very close to the Tourist Info. Centre.

Afterworks

by annamantere

This is a swedish thing, at least I´ve never seen it anywhere else. In the pubs, nightclubs and restaurants there´s this thing called "afterworks". It´s mainly on fridaynights and the thing is that pubs etc. serve free food and drinks for the half price, you just have to pay the cloakroom-fee. The food is usually very greasy and maybe salty too, to encrease your thirst... Still it´s a great thing. In Göteborg try Avenue 10, Sarah or Sports bar O´Reilly`s for this.
They usually start around 5pm. and last for few hours. But this varyes from place to place.

Famous For Their "Long" Legs?

by Todd64

I guess this could be considered more of an "observation" than a "custom", but I noticed that almost everything in a Swede's flat is built upon tiny legs. I noticed this most in the bathroom with the bathtub. Now, I'm not talking about the old-fashioned "clawfoot" tubs here; a Swede's tub looks like ours but don't seem to ever be "built in" as they are here in North America. Instead, they sit in the corner standing atop tiny little adjustable legs, and some people even cover these legs with little foam-rubber shoes. Who says Swedes don't have a sense of humour?

Another thing I noticed is that it seems in the corner of everyone's bathroom stands a long-handled rubber squeegee and in the center of the tiled floor there is a little drain. I've never seen this except for in Sweden (and public washrooms) and since you're not allowed to wear shoes in the flat, I was terribly worried that I'd catch my toe in there while squeegee'ing the water I had spilled during my shower.

I have small toes.

Blame my mother.

Indians playing ice hockey...

by Henrik_rrb

If you're not a big fan of football/soccer maybe a game of ice hockey sounds better for you? In Gothenburg one of Sweden's best teams, Västra Frölunda, plays.
Season goes from early september to the end of april. 55 games in the serie, and then quarter-, semi- and final, with even more games...

Frölunda play their homegames in Scandinavium, which takes almost 12 000 spectators. The indoor stadium was earlier wide famous for it's orange colour, but to this season they re-painted the whole building grey.

Frölunda, called the Indians, won the swedish league in 2003 and 2005, losing the final to Färjestad in 2006. This season they have started really badly, after losing quite many players to the NHL.

This has also meant that the supporters comes less to the matches, which means it's now easier to get a ticket to a game again. The last 2-3 years it has been almost impossible to find a ticket if not being a member or having a season ticket.

Ticket prices goes from 150 SEK and up I think. Earlier they played in a classic green and white shirt, but with the american culture coming also to Sweden, naming the club Frölunda Indians, also the classic colours were gone.
They are nowadays mostly red, with some parts of the dress in white and green and yellow and probably pink too... Who knows, with all these americanisation...? ;)

Visit the Archipelago

by MickeH

Do you have a day to spare? Need to charge your batteries, improve your tan, relax, chill out?

Then take your bathing trunks, pack the pick-nick basket, hang the 'do not disturb' sign around your neck and head out towards the ferries at Saltholmen.

If you take the tram there you can use the same ticket on the ferrys, no extra charge.

There are a large number of islands to choose from and you can't really make any big misstakes in choosing where to go off.

But if you want something specific there is a ticket office there where you can ask, or just ask someone at the docks, friendly and accurate tips are guaranteed.
