Discover green experiences and outdoor adventures

Gothenburg is encircled by rocky shoreline, deep forests, tranquil lakes and the surging sea to the west. No other Swedish city gives such easy access to nature. Experience a flourishing green city with some of the best parks and gardens in northern Europe and historic castles and fortifications to discover.  Adventure is never far away, there is always an island waiting to be explored or a mountain to be conquered from the saddle of your bike.

Green and grand city

Gothenburg will reach its 400th anniversary in 2021. We are celebrating by working together to make our city even better. All the way up to the anniversary year and well beyond. The theme of 2017 is "Green and grand city", a year that will confirm Gothenburg’s position as a sustainable, green and attractive city for everyone.
