Re: Ferry times

I found the timetable for Styrsö (Swedish only but I think you'll be able to figure it out with Google translator).

PDF warning.

Monday to Friday: http://www.vasttrafik.se/TimeTablesExcel/408af1c9-2c0c-462d-8b0d-1653f642cfd7.pdf
Saturday: http://www.vasttrafik.se/TimeTablesExcel/408af1c9-2c0c-462d-8b0d-1653f642cfd7.pdf
Sunday and red days (the red days on the calendar): http://www.vasttrafik.se/TimeTablesExcel/44d9b30e-0c3f-4042-978b-136357c3c27b.pdf

From the city, you need to take tram #11 to Saltholmen, where the boats depart from. I found the timetables for tram #11 on http://www.vasttrafik.se/en/Startpage/Timetables/.

Note that the timetables available are good until Dec 12, 2009 and usually a week before, they release the new timetables.

Hope it helps.

Travel Tips for Göteborg

The Harbour

by Polly74

The harbour is a vital artery for Göteborg and Sweden. These days though, there are also pleasant streets and attractive residential areas close to the water.

The fisherman's quay is the place for early birds! Fish auctions are held daily at 7 am, except Mondays. Visitors can't buy, but you can watch the auction in action.

Visiting friends...

by Marpessa

Just a simple tip.

When visiting someone's house in Sweden (and I've found the same in other Scandinavian countries) you take off your shoes when entering their house.

In Australia (where I live) you usually only take your shoes off if they're really dirty (caked in mud or something). But here, no matter how clean your shoes are, you take them off, it is the respectful thing to do.

:)

Packing List

by sabe

Waterproof. Ya'll thank me. Heavy duty rainjacket in the winter. Not so heavy duty rainjacket in the summer. Plenty of socks. Forget about checks, swedes doesn't use checks like Americans. (all the time that is) Creditcards are ok at most places, but, BUT there are places that doesn't take them, so beware. You might have to do dishes after that nice meal of yours. :) Cash is a good way to go, or at least ask the waiter before ordering if they take your card. (The smaller the place the less likely it is) Carry cash, but not alot. Just make sure you have a ATM card, because there are plenty of ATM machines downtown Gothenburg. (unless you have Minuten, Swedes you can relate! Crappy bank from hell..) But as a non-Swede you wont have that so don't worry.

Day tour to Marstrand by boat

by LisaThomas

If you are in Gothenburg in summer a really nice excursion for the day is to go to the island/city of Marstrand. You can go there by bus (Nils Eriksson terminal) but THE way to come to Marstrand is by boat. The company Börjesson arranges boat tours to Marstrand daily during summer. It is a nice 3 hours journey to get there and then you do see something of the beatiful archipelago. The best thing though is to buy a one way fare, not the return ticket. If you buy the return ticket you will only have 2 hours at Marstrand, which is not really enough. There are plenty of buses going to Gothenburg from Marstrand (which is also slightly cheaper then buying the return ticket on the ferry).
What you should not miss when at Marstrand is to walk all the way around the island. The back side of the island is really special with the characteristic cliffs of the Swedish West coast. Eating and drinking in Marstrand is pretty expensive so if you are a budget traveller it is a good idea to bring your own picnic - then you can eat it sitting on a cliff by the sea.
Enjoy!
