So what is the best thing about Gothenburg? Well, we could tell you about the fantastic cuisine, the museums, all those parks, the pumping nightlife or its beautiful setting along the Göta river. But the best thing about this Swedish city is that it boasts a good dose of traditional Nordic charm minus the Scandinavian prices.
Gothenburg is not only Sweden’s largest port, but it is also its friendliest city with down-to-earth locals and a large student population, ready to welcome tourists with open arms. Renowned as the gastronomic capital of Sweden, this is also a city for the foodies with Michelin-starred eateries and seafood restaurants galore, not to mention a strong cafe culture that sees the city bursting with activity during the warm summer months.
And if you like your holiday destinations complete with a network of stunning canals and bridges, tree-lined streets and some beautiful architecture, then you’ll love this place. Oh, and before we forget, Gothenburg is also home to Scandinavia’s biggest theme park, Liseberg, which also doubles up as the region’s largest Christmas market during the winter months – now that’s what we call diversity.
