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.

Although close to the city centre, this lake feels like a different world. I love combining city life with the outdoors and this is a great spot for that.

An enchanting lake east of the city centre Editors' Note

The enchanting Delsjön Lake is situated 6 kilometres east of the city centre. You can find jetty, rocky shores, a small sandy beach and grassy slopes in this lake. The lake is great for swimming.

The Delsjön Lake has stalls that rent out canoes should you feel like exploring the area. If you want to stay for a day, you can also use kiosks near the beach.

If you have young kids with you, you can take them to a nearby playground which has a number of fun facilities such as swings. To get to Delsjön Lake, take the number 5 tram to Töpelsgatan, and then walk for about 15 minutes through a pristine forest.
