    Göteborg Favorites

    Goteborg has many interesting buildings constructed in various architectural styles. You can find buildings from the 17th century (e.g. Crown Fortlet) as well as modern buildings like the Opera House (1994). Many houses in the suburbs of Goteborg were built in functionalism style at the beginnig of the 20th century. I really like the Neo-Gothic...

  • Haga quarters

    Göteborg Favorites

    The Haga district was established by Queen Kristina in the mid 16th century as Goteborg's first suburb. It soon became a sort of worker's area as it was mainly harbour workers who lived there. As the city centre has grown a lot in the 20th century, the Haga district changed its appearance. Nowadays it is a charming area with old buildings,...

  • Slottsskogen

    Göteborg Favorites

    Slottskogen (The Castle Forest) is the biggest green park of Goteborg's many parks. It is a nice place for all sorts of recreations. For example the park includes a frisbee golf course, a pool with seals and the Natural History Museum, just to mention a few of its possibilities. Most people come here to take a relaxing stroll along the green lawns...

  • Downtown

    Göteborg Favorites

    Haga is very old. But there is modern shopping and lots of "happening" there. Excellent walking/people watching opportunities. So many different things to see and do. From water, museums, and food - to shopping and photo ops.

    Göteborg Favorites

    Goteborg is home to Scandinavia's biggest and most important port. Due to its location at the mouth of the river Gota which ends in the Kattegat, it has access to both the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. Besides many cargo ships it is also served by ferries from Frederikshavn (DK), Kiel (D), Kristiansand (N) and Newcastle (UK). Website: ...

  • Avenyn

    Göteborg Favorites

    Goteborg's most famous street is probably Avenyn. The name is just a short form of Kungsportsavenyn. The wide Avenyn links Kungsportsbron bridge in the city centre with Gotaplatsen, where the Art Museum, the Concert Hall and a Poseidon statue can be found. The street is not only a vibrant entertainment area with many pubs, cafes and restaurants,...

    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.

  • Coastal daytrips

    Göteborg Favorites

    Get out of the city. There are some beautiful areas nearby, in the forests north of the city some excellent hiking. I most enjoyed the day trip that I took up the coast to the community of Lysekil. It was a very easy excursion on a local bus route, off the beaten path but an interesting glimpse of a little known part of Sweden.

  • Money

    Göteborg Favorites

    Compared to Toronto, things aren't as expensive in Göteborg as you might think, and even though there are bank machines everywhere, I'd still recommend keeping a little cash in your pockets just in case; not everybody accepts credit cards, and you can forget about Traveller's Cheques. One thing to remember though when buying SEK (the abbreviation...

  • Archipelagos

    Göteborg Favorites

    An hour before we arrived in Göteborg very early in the morning, I left the cabin of the ferry and went on deck to see the archipelago and the first bits of Sweden. It was wonderful, I was thrilled by the nature. (My first Scandinavia experience actually!)

    The system in Sweden is rather confusing (I think). So let me make a try to confuse you as well, LOL :-))Three parts of SwedenFirst of all Sweden is often roughly devided in three main parts and Svealand is the central part of the country. On the map you can see these three parts of Sweden.- Götaland = South Sweden- Svealand = Central Sweden-...
