3. Sankt Jörgen Park

Sankt Jörgen Park has a lot to offer, from activities such as golf and padel to restaurants and bars, but it is the spa that steals the show. Several different saunas, “floating” lounge beds, treatments and so much more. It is relaxation at its best.

4. Upper House Spa

Do you find it hard to choose between serenity and city pulse? Head to Upper House and you don’t have to choose! You will be relaxing in the city centre but with the sounds of the city 20 storeys below you. Go sit in the outdoor jacuzzi with the glass floor, if you dare, and enjoy a spectactular view of Gothenburg. Want to stay over? You are in luck, Upper House Hotel and Gothia Towers are two fantastic options.

6. Clarion Obie Spa

An urban spa, located in the Clarion Hotel Draken at Järntorget, with its foundation in Nordic culture with minimalist, dark and raw materials. The elements of fire (heat, light) and water (cold, reflections) make your body and soul one with nature through relaxation and perspective to a busy existence. Here, in addition to dry saunas and wonderfully warm pools, you’ll also find an ice sauna equipped with a large screen that creates the illusion of a view of icy seas and cold climates. Let the light, water, steam, coolness and warmth embrace you!
