A museum giving you the history of medicine from the Antiques until today, always with some exhibition on a hot topic. The permanent collections are from the 18th century and onwards and show hospital interiors and instruments. The museum is in the Oterdahl House which itself served as a hospital 200 years ago.
Do not forget to check out the architecture of the houses in town. There are different types. In Haga for example there are mainly houses with stone in the streetlevel and wood above. Around Avenyn you hardly find them. Here houes are completely made of stone. Linegatan has a lot of brickstone houses.
(The pic is taken on Vasagatan.)
This square used to be called "Stora Torget" (the big square) as opposed to "Lilla Torget" (The small square). The statue is of Gustav II Adolf, who founded the present Goteborg in 1621, after Danes has occupied the forteress at the mouth of the river several times and demanded high ransoms. On the square are City Hall, the Stock Echange and the City Council.
Brunnsparken is right in the heart of the city centre as well as being pretty much at the heart of the tram system as most lines stop there.
This picture was taken looking to the west towards the Christinae Church - which was opened in 1748 and has some services in German - and the City Hall on Norra Hamngatan. On the other side of Stora Hamnkanalen is Sodra Hamngatan which is home to the Palace building and the East India House which is now home to the Goteburg City Museum.
You can sit on the steps beside the canal and enjoy the view of all the old buildings!
Another of the cities main squares, right in the heart of the city centre, next to Brunnsparken, this is more of an administrative area. I didn't figure out which building was which but its surrounded by the old and newer City Halls, the Stock Exchange and the Council buildings.
The statue in the middle is of Gustav II Adolf who was the cities founder.
Go clothes shopping girls, there's a H&M at every corner. The company comes from Goteborg (so I have heard) so that's not a big surprise...
There's not just plain H&M but H&M girls only, kids only, bras only, whatever only shops.
In this city square it's situated the old and new City Halls, the City council and the Stock Exchange.
In the middle of the square there's a statue of Goteborg's founder, Gustav II Adolf.
The city hall, built in 1670 is of a Grecian style. Very beautiful on the outside. (Unfortunately I didn't go in)
Small medicine museum, perfect for spending time while showering outside :-)
Not so many stuff but a comprehensive view of medicine basics.
