Deemed by Vogue Magazine as a must-visit city, Gothenburg, Sweden offers something for just about everyone to enjoy.
You can meander down its cobblestone streets, taking in all the sights of this picturesque seaside town, perhaps stopping at a café for fika – a very Swedish coffee-and-snack break. Treat yourself to a giant cinnamon bun—Swedes love them! Stroll amongst the trees and flowers in the park called Trädgårdsföreningen. Take a Paddan boat tour through the canals. Unwind at the spa Hagabader in the lovely Haga district. Enjoy meals at as many places as you can during your Gothenburg visit. Everything from Michelin-starred restaurants to casual, trendy food trucks can be found just about everywhere you look.
If you want more action, you can rent a kayak or a bicycle. Go on a lobster safari in September and catch your own dinner. Check out Liseberg amusement park for rides and live music. Take in a hockey game at Scandinavium. Shop your heart out at Nordiska Kompaniet (NK to the locals), a popular shopping gallery. For nightlife, Andra Langgatan (street) is the place to be, with popular spots like the beer-and-whiskey pub The Rover and clubs like the trendy Café Publik.
Another fun thing to do is to go island hopping in Gothenburg’s Archipelago. If you are looking for good food and spectacular natural scenery, this is the place to go. You can see a lot in 24 hours. Take the 281 ferry service for Vrångö Island out to beautiful Donsö. The ferry sails roundtrip every day of the week, all year round.
The first sight to greet you at the ferry landing on Donsö are the red fishermen’s shacks. It’s just a short walk to the island’s small boutiques and studios, as well as several nature trails. When you’re looking for a good meal with a great view, there are restaurants which offer a variety of fish/seafood and other local fare. There are fishermen’s shacks where you can even stay overnight, enjoying a good night’s sleep to the sound of the waves lapping against the rocks.
