Gothenburg

city island

Scandinavia's busiest port

It may be a busy port, but Gothenburg has much more to offer than traditional water-related attractions. It’s inexpensive, compared to other destinations in Sweden, and more fun than you’d expect: there are over 60,000 students at the Gothenburg University, so you can expect a young atmosphere everywhere you go. Add to your Gothenburg travel guide Liseberg, Scandinavia’s largest amusement park, or, if you’d like to experience the city’s heritage first hand, don’t miss Skansen Kronan and Haga, with its picturesque wooden houses from the 19th century.
