Combining contemporary Swedish design and a warm sense of tradition, Gothenburg lights the way to Christmas. From the harbour, a three kilometre Lane of Light guides you through the city to stylish outdoor lighting displays, past the Bältespännar Park, to the million lights of Liseberg Christmas market.
A walk in Liseberg amusement park brings out the child in us all. The aromas of glögg (mulled wine), toasted almonds and freshly made waffles fill the air, and Santa himself is on hand to take your wish lists. There’s also a truly old-fashioned Christmas market.
Besides Sweden’s biggest Christmas market at Liseberg there are also traditional markets in the old city hall (Kronhuset), in Haga and in Nordstan with the wonderful aromas of Christmas and lots of handicrafts and unusual Christmas gifts.
