Three real must-dos during the autumn holiday are Halloween at Liseberg Amusement Park, Creepy Science at Universeum Science Centre and the haunted Gothenburg city walk.
Halloween at Liseberg
Autumn at Liseberg will be filled with everything from a hair-raising haunted house and shady characters to childish mischief and candy. In addition, 30 Halloween-open merry-go-rounds and breathtaking rollercoasters awaits you.
Creepy Science at Universeum
Universeum offers terrible adventures for curious, fearless visitors, at all ages. Creepy Science means that science in chemistry, physics, biology and technology are examined through chilling filters.
Halloween at Liseberg Amusement Park
After summer, Scandinavia's largest amusement park goes through a spooky transformation. Halloween at Liseberg is suitable for big and small - but small children should go home before nightfall.
A favourite season for chefs
In autumn, Gothenburg chefs have the time of their lives thanks to all the great produce in season. Try some world-class seafood and see what your local chef has picked in the woods and fields around town. Gothenburg has a vibrant restaurant scene and if you're looking for star chefs, there's a bunch. Also, check out our guide to autumn food.
Parks and gardens
Visit Gothenburg's gardens at their peak! The botanical garden is one of Europe's most impressive, Slottsskogen city park with its children's zoo is a favourite and The Garden Society (Trädgårdsföreningen) and the palm house is a must. Fancy a day trip? There are several castles worth a visit in the area.
City weekend in Gothenburg
Stroll between shopping malls and cafés and explore local fashion brands. At dinner time, take your pick from exclusive shellfish, super tasty street food and hearty dishes made from local produce.
