  • Archipelago

    Göteborg Off The Beaten Path

    Mosts tourists to Göteborg opt to visit the Northern part of the archipelago (Orust, Hönö), as they are very well connected to the mainland and are easily accessed by car. Not so many, however, venture out to the Southern archipelago which has its own advantages. The main islands are accessible by public ferries which leave from Saltholmen (tram...

  • Forests & lakes

    Göteborg Off The Beaten Path

    Take a tram no.7 or 11 to Bergsjön. It´s a little lake 5 minutes walk away from the last stop. There´s no tourists, but many locals enjoying the lake and it´s surroundings. Water in the lake is really warm, because of it´s small size. Surrounding forests have loads of little paths which you can follow and enjoy the swedish nature. Also if you get...

  • Walk around

    Göteborg Off The Beaten Path

    This place in Ramberget, Hisingren area is indeed a find, because you travel slightly northwest by tram & then you have to walk for about 10-15 minutes. You'll be passing residential flat blocks and parades of shops, never imagining seeing a mountain in such a neighbourhood. But all of a sudden, at a road junction, out of the blue, you see a...

  • Riverside

    Göteborg Off The Beaten Path

    The Alvsborgsbron bridge is Goteborg's impressive bridge which is situated near the sea entrance to the city. The bridge, which looks a bit like the Golden Gate Bridge links Goteborg with Hisingen, Sweden's fourth largest island. The bridge is about 900 m long and was opened in 1966. Directions: The Alvsborgsbron bridge is located near Roda Sten...

  • Fishing

    Göteborg Off The Beaten Path

    I did something that I never thought I'd do; I actually went fishing. My friend's father is now a private fishing guide, so she and I went out with him and about 20 other people in beautiful weather one morning to fish the waters of the Kattegat. What a great way to spend the day! For I think a mere SEK 350 or $40.00 USD (we fished for free...

  • Kungälv

    Göteborg Off The Beaten Path

    Kungälv is a small town some 30 km north of Göteborg and worth seeing for its picturesque wooden houses in the centre and for a huge fortress. It stands where two rivers (Göta and Nordre Älv) meet as that was an important defence point in the wars between Norway and Sweden in the days when Norway held the province north of Göteborg. Apart from...

  • Denmark

    Göteborg Off The Beaten Path

    I wasn't sure whether to add this as an 'off the beaten path tip' or not. But while I was in Goteborg I did come down to Helsingborg and (*very* briefly) to Helsingfor in Denmark. My friend Henrik had arranged for us to go down to Helsingborg to see a football match between Helsingborg and IFK Goteborg (see my sports tip for more information)....

  • Linnégatan

    Göteborg Off The Beaten Path

    In the city centre, but still off the beaten path since it is up on a hill away from major sights, you will find the Annedal Church. We had many school leaving do's here but that's not why it's worth seeing :))) It's just an impressive building and sometimes also have concerts. You can walk here from Linnéplatsen tram stop from where you also see...
