Discover the many facets of Gothenburg, Sweden's second largest city. Its home to a year-round ice-free seaport on the country's west coast which is the largest export harbor in Northern Europe. In the past, the city was known primarily for its industry and as a working-class town. This is where the old saying, "They don't write poetry in Gothenburg; they write bills," comes from.
Stroll through the former working-class suburb of Haga. With its picturesque wooden houses and numerous cafés, you will be taken back to the atmosphere of the 19th century.
Did you know that Gothenburg has been a city of culture and trade fairs since the end of the 20th century and has even hosted the European and World Athletics Championships and the EU Summit? Numerous cultural offerings, opera, concert hall, parks, child-friendly museums, as well as Liseberg, the largest amusement park in Northern Europe, characterize the cityscape today.
Canals crisscross the center and give the place an interesting flair. A ride on the so-called toad boats should not be missed. Be careful though, some bridges are so low that you have to duck down to the bottom of the boat when passing.
Visit the archipelago of small rocky islands off the coast of Gothenburg that were formed during the Ice Age. Some of them are uninhabited while others are home to quaint picturesque villages.
Our tour would not be complete, of course, without a stop at Kungsportsavenyn, the main boulevard, inspired in its layout by the Ringstrasse in Vienna. At the end of it stands the 7-meter-high statue of Poseidon, one of Gothenburg's landmarks.
If you get hungry, go to the Fish Church, which is built in the form of a Gothic church, but inside houses the Gothenburg Fish Market. By the way, our filter about food in Gothenburg will help you to become more familiar with the dishes offered in the city.
