Gothenburg. It’s a little bit different…

Welcome to Gothenburg – the perfect city break. Creative and refreshingly unpretentious, Sweden’s second-largest city offers something for everyone.

From world-class eateries – drawing in visitors from round the world – to some of the most “Instagrammable” bars and pop-ups you’ll ever come across, Gothenburg is rightly labelled Sweden’s culinary capital.

Nowhere better encapsulates Sweden’s laid-back feel – nor Scandinavian style – than Gothenburg. Arguably Sweden’s most welcoming city, expect to immediately feel at home while you explore the city centre on foot, and its effortlessly trendy cafés and shops. 

A vibrant music and nightlife scene – including the famed Way Out West music festival – will keep your evenings busy, while the city also makes the perfect base for exploring Sweden’s exquisite West (locally known as “best”) coast.

"It’s the sort of city that makes you want to dress, eat and live that little bit better."
Along Dusty Roads

Don’t miss:

  • Fika at Da Matteo, a Gothenburg institution, the coffee shop is one of the originals to bring a different sort of coffee culture to the city. There are a few branches, but in summer you should make a beeline for the one at Vallgatan which has a large outdoor seating area in front of the mural (and there’s a wonderful little secret garden at the back).  
  • A boat trip with the Paddan boat, this hour-long trip is a lovely introduction to the city and some of its stories.
  • Go for a swim and sauna in the open air urban swimming pool at Frihamnen Harbour
  • A trip to the Botanical garden, what better place to enjoy a little nature in the middle of a city than the beautiful Botanical gardens. 
  • Café Gazette, where the cool kids hang out in the evening, this bar and restaurant offer tasty modern tapas style dishes.
