About Gothenburg

Enjoy Gothenburg



In Gothenburg, an abundance of culture and other activities are found within comfortable walking distance. Characterful neighbourhoods and parks are located only a stone’s throw from attractions and entertainment. This gives you a chance to catch a glimpse of the city even if the schedule is tight.
 
Top quality restaurants, several with Michelin stars, are offering cuisine from all over the world at reasonable prices. The main culinary attraction is the local seafood; prawns, lobster and a wide selection of fish, ranked amongst the finest in the world.
 
The tranquillity of the archipelago is never far away. The trams and boats in the public transport network take you to the picturesque islands in no time.
 
You can also enjoy Swedish nature in the middle of the city. Gothenburg has a stunning 175 square metres of green space per citizen and leafy parks like the Garden Society or the Botanical Gardens.

Vivid cultural scene

A number of prominent cultural institutions are found in the city centre. You can view the unique collection of Nordic art at Gothenburg Museum of Art or enjoy the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra at the Concert Hall. Contemporary exhibitions of the Museum of World Culture can be explored just across the street from the largest congress centre. The Opera House with a waterfront location is also worth a visit.
