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.

Biopalatset

One of the city’s largest film venues

Stay Editor's Note

The Bioplatset movie house is located in the Kunstorget area of Gothenburg, close to the city center. It first opened its doors in 1995, and with ten cinema screens, is one of the city’s largest film venues.

The theatre was designed by the Swedish architectural firm Semren & Mansson, with the interior being designed by Rutger Andersson. Together, they managed to retain some walls of the original 17th century building that stood here.

Biopalatset is a cinema under the SF Bio, the largest cinema chain in Sweden. They show movies every day of the week, roughly half of which are foreign language films, so there should always be something showing in English language.
