Tuesday night!

by Stu1980

Hi Everyone!

Any recommendations for a good way to spend a Tuesday evening/night in August in Goteborg?

Depends on what you like - the city if full of seaside things, cafés, pubs and clubs.

On Tuesdays, "Guilty Pleasure" at Styrbord Babord in Kungsportsplatsen is a popular club after 22.00. Not updated with much else now since I've moved city along with a lot of my friends.

Travel Tips for Göteborg

History of Gothenburg

by Henrik_rrb

Gothenburg was founded in 1621 by the Swedish king Gustaf II Adolf. It was then surrounded by Danish and Norwegian land areas, and was from the start an important area for Sweden with the possibilities to Swedish harbours and the trade that could be built from here.

The city was actually founded first already in 1603, by the then Swedish king Karl IX, but the Danish bastards burnt it down, so well that it was not until in the 1900s that they found some proof of the city.

When they rebuilt the city in 1621 they got a lot of help and inspiration from Holland, which is why the canales have a dutch touch in the design. Also the fortress, Älvsborgs fästning, was built with help from the Dutch. With a huge harbour in the city the international shipping was the most important thing, and there were a lot of seamen from all over Europé. Actually both english, dutch and german were seen as official languages together with swedish at that time.

British fashion soon became fashion also in Gothenburg, and the city is even today also known as ”Little London”.

Today there is a statue of the city founder, seen at "Gustaf Adolfs torg" in the center. He's pointing, and according to the legend says "here will we build the city".

Gothenburg is the second biggest city in Sweden, with about 880 000 inhabitants with the suburbs included. It's the fifth biggest city in the Nordic countries, no matter if one counts the suburbs or not. The city hosts wellknown companies like Volvo and SKF.

Late in the 1900s the shipyard industri went down, and with that also a lot of shipyard workers lost their jobs. Gothenburg has since then changed more into a city of events, with sport events and trade fairs as the most popular.

Gothenburg has hosted both the World Cup and European championships in football, as well as World- and European championships in Atletics, World Championship in ice hockey and handball. Every year there are also a lot of exhibitions at Svenska Mässan.

I went there in November and there was the Christmas market already. I bought home a herring (Sill) prepared in traditional way and I had a nice walk through the park drinking hot spiced wine. It was about minus 5 degrees outside.

Door locks


In Scandinavia door locks or keys often have to be turned contrary to how you might be used to turning them to open or close a door.
For example, in Germany a door with a door handle on the right side is usually locked by turning the key clockwise, whereas in Scandinavia you might have to turn it anti-clockwise.

Official Tourist Guide


A free Official Tourist Guide is available from Goteborg's Tourist Information Offices and some other places like airports or hotels. Among various maps it also covers all sorts of information about accomodation, sightseeing, parks shopping, excursions, restaurants, transport and much more.
I found that Guide really useful for my long weekend trip.

Goteborg's two Tourist Information Offices are located in the Nordstan Shopping Centre and at Kungsportsplatsen 2. Apart from that you can pick up the guide at the airport and in various hotels.

By now, you have probably realised that Gothenburg is all about the sea, so of course fishing can be arranged. Pike and perch can be fished in the inland lakes at Delsjön whilst salmon can be fished in the rivers Lärje and Säve. If you want to go fishing in the archipelago, that can naturally be arranged too. Your best bet is to contact the tourist information as they have a list of all the updated boat tours arranged for that, as well as routes to the inland areas, and they also sell the fishing licenses needed everywhere east of the Götaälv Bridge. Should you be unlucky, just see my tips about the "fish church" and fish auction...
