Gothenburg's oldest suburb is now a lovely neighbourhood in the centre of town. Pedestrian paved streets and well-preserved brick and wood houses give this neighbourhood an old-fashioned touch. Plenty of cafés, boutiques, fashion, antiques and second-hand shops for the discerning shopper.
Back in the 18th century, the houses were low wooden buildings, but as Haga old town expanded these gave way to brick and wood houses. Up until the 70s, the standard of living here was quite low, but a huger renovation project took place in the 80s. The old style was partially maintained and Haga is now one of the most attractive neighbourhoods to live in with its plentiful cafés, shops and restaurants.
Both the Farmer's market selling organic and local produce and Haga Christmas Market are regular events in the area.
