Sweden’s second city has everything. Whether you want the solitude of an archipelago island, some new and exciting design, an evening of food and entertainment, you can be sure that Gothenburg has something to offer. Gothenburg is also a city of major events, and its key arenas are all on one central street, Skånegatan. From the Hotel, walk to Odinsplatsen, then take Folkungagatan, and the walk to Liseberg takes about 20 minutes. On your way, you’ll pass Ullevi, Gamla Ullevi, Scandinavium, the Filmstaden multiplex, the Universeum science center and the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre. There’s always something going on in the city, be it theater, concerts, sports or anything else. But remember to book early!The city’s best shopping is in Nordstan center near the Central Station, which also marks the start of landmark shopping street Avenyn, with its wide range of shops, malls and department stores, stretching right the way to Götaplatsen. The biggest amusement park in the Nordic region, Liseberg, which has over 30 rides, beautiful landscaped gardens, restaurants and stages, is a near must for any visitor. If you’re interested in the archipelago and swimming, you’re close to the sea. Take the tram to Saltholmen from the Central Station/Drottningtorget, which is the gateway to the archipelago. Boats depart to all the islands in the southern archipelago from here.If culture’s your thing, it’s close at hand. Feskekôrka historical fish market is just over 20 minutes’ walk from the Hotel. Gothenburg is hard to beat for just taking a stroll, or time out for a coffee in one of its many inviting cafes, enjoying the city’s parks and the scent of the cool, sea air.
