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, but so much fun: there are over 60,000 students at the University of Gothenburg, so you can expect an exciting, youthful atmosphere everywhere you go. Don’t miss Liseberg, Scandinavia’s largest amusement park, or, if you’d like to experience the city’s heritage first hand, check out Skansen Kronan and Haga, with its picturesque wooden houses from the 19th century.
Rebuilt Shipyard with Bungee Jump and Museum
Eriksberg is an old shipyard that has undergone renovation and is now a bustling commercial area. The former buildings found in the old Eriksberg Shipyard have been remodelled and have now been transformed into a hotel.
Eriksberg Shipyard’s gantry crane has a height of 84 meters above sea level, and provides an excellent view of the harbour. Ericksberg also has bungee jumping facilities for adventurous folks.
If you have a keen interest in naval history, a visit to the East India Company building site for the Göthenborg ship is highly recommended. You can also find a number of good restaurants and cafes at the Eriksberg Shipyard.
