Travel Tips for visiting Gothenburg

Gothenburg is a Swedish city open to the sea on the west side, facing Denmark. It is the second-largest city in the country in terms of population and it is also the first port in Scandinavia. It attracts more and more tourists but also expatriates thanks to its living environment, mixing urban dynamism and preserved environment.

It is very pleasant to stroll along the Avenyn and Linnegatan avenues or in the cobbled streets of Haga, the trendy district, you will be impressed by the Scandinavian architecture and charming wooden houses. Avenyn stretches from the Gotaolatsen square and its statue of Poseidon, the symbol of the city, right in the middle of the square, to Kungsportplatsen, from where a bunch of small shopping alleys starts on each side!

If you want to go green, the botanical gardens and the Slottsskogen park with its gazebos should satisfy you. The city center of Gothenburg is cut by canals and the river Göta Älv. The nicest place to admire the canals is towards the Kungsparken park, where you can walk in nice little alleys lined with big trees, with on the other side of the canal a nice view of typical Scandinavian buildings.

Once in Haga, climb the hill where "Skansen Kronan", a kind of fortified tower with a crown on top, is located. From here you will have a panoramic view of the city and its green landscape. You can bring a picnic and have lunch on the grass, with the city spread out at your feet. Nice feeling!

Culture lovers are not left out as the city organizes many festivals and has many museums. From marine and fine arts to design and tropical ecosystems, there is something for everyone. Finally, the days end in beauty in Gothenburg, with gastronomy very famous among seafood lovers.

The city is very rich for the tourists, between the visits of gardens, museums, buildings more beautiful than the others while passing by the charm of the Scandinavian city, you will not have time to be bored in this charming city.
