Travel Tips for Göteborg

Start your day by walking to...

by catbert

Start your day by walking to 'Skansen Kronan'. From here you can look all over the city and make you a picture of how the city looks like. Then you walk to 'Linnégatan' a street where you will find a lot of café. Stop and enjoy a cup of coffe, why not stop att 'Bönor och Bagels'/'Beans and Bagels'. After a short brake, start walking towards a park called 'Slottskogen'. Walk straight through the park and cross the motorway on the left and walk into a garden called 'Botaniska trädgården'. Walk too the top of the garden. Here you will find a gate. Open the door and now you are in a forest called 'Ängsgårdsbergen'. Follow the sign to 'Asia'. Walk to the top of the mountin. Look out over the city and then walk back again. When you find yourself outside 'Beans and Bagels' again. Start looking for a nice restaurant. This is what i would have shown you. No shopping, no museums etc etc... Enjoying a really good espresso in the sunshine...

Skansen Kronan

by Sjalen

As I grew up just one block from this old lump of stone, I hold it dear. It was built in the 17th century as part of the city defense system and is a battlement tower on top of a hill. When I was little, it housed a Military Museum and as it is was also said to house some ghosts, we were terrified when we visited the inside. Mostly, we messed around on the hill outside instead, sliding down it in the snow, falling down from home made tree swings and much more. This is also a legendary place for New Year's fireworks, both to see them and to light them yourself.

Local architecture

by Sjalen

The so called "landshövdinge" houses are typical of Göteborg. Landshövding means "county chief" and it was those who had enough of the fires sweeping through wooden Göteborg. They simply decided that houses had to be built with a brick foundation and only on top of that could you go on building with wood. Thus, you see a lot of these houses in the areas surrounding the immediate centre. In particular, head for Majorna along the river/behind Slottsskogen or to Redbergsplatsen or Mölndalsvägen if you want to study this very local architecture.

Gothia Cup: The World Youth Cup

by Todd64

The Gothia Cup enters the new century as the world's foremost youth football tournament - a position which demands constant high quality, development and vision. Our aim is to offer 1,200 teams from some 60 nations something way above the ordinary. Something which is only to be found at the Gothia Cup. The international matches against teams from the far corners of the earth are just a part of this. Equally important is the chance to see some of the world's best footballers, listen to the hottest pop artists, test the latest in IT, and of course, meet friends from all over the world.

-from the Gothia Cup website. Earplugs!
I was there last year during the tournament, and although it's cute to see thousands of kids walking the streets and waving flags while displaying intense pride for their respective countries, the screaming is absolutely ear splitting!

This is the last (closest to the sea) bridge over the River Gota. It is a bit tricky to get there (5 minutes walk from the Alvsborg area on the left bank ), but in the good weather the view is rewarding, the river mouth and the islands on one side, the city on the other side, and shipyards, sea ferries, and Alvsborg 19 century industrial area beneath.
