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.

Barnens Zoo

Mini-Zoo for Children

Mini-Zoo for Children Editors' Note

At the Barnens Zoo children get a chance to interact with many different species of animals in their natural habitat. Farm animals like pigs, ducks, sheep, and goats are allowed to roam freely in an enclosure. Children can get close and pet these friendly animals.

There is a special event at Barnens Zoo every afternoon. From 2:00 pm to 2:15 pm, you can walk up close to some arctic animals like penguins and seals and watch them while they are being fed by the zoos’ keepers.

To get to the Barnens Zoo, you can take trams 1, 2, or 7 going to Botaniska trädgården.
