    Göteborg Things to Do

    Paddan boats have been cruising the canals of Göteborg for years, and are much of a concept. I have taken their tours many times, and still find it great fun! The best part is the fact that you travel at a level lower than the rest of the city, so giving you a new perspective on it. The Paddan boats cruise the canals and the moat surrounding the...

    The best food hall in Sweden as Göteborg has cheaper food than elsewhere and is a logistics hub so competition is fierce. In Stockholm the (smaller) halls tend to concentrate on either immigrant food or expensive Swedish game and delicatessen but this one has it all, plus more fresh fish since it is along the west coast. The best thing about the...

  • City Hall & Stortorget

    Malmö Things to Do

    Walking down Sodergatan towards the main square, you'll be hard pressed to miss the Optimistic Orchestra (Optimistorkestern). Created by Yngve Lundell, this sculpture is intended to express the mood of Malmo: upbeat, confident, happy, and basically, optimistic. I think the swaggering brass band conveys that message pretty well.
