Art and cultural experiences
If the rain pours down or if the autumn wind becomes a bit chilly, a visit to a museum is the perfect activity. Experience art from the 15th century onwards in a beautiful and historic environment at Gothenburg Museum of Art, pop into a smaller gallery or see a unique exhibition.
Food and drink
Gothenburg’s restaurant scene is very much alive and new gems, big and small, opens regularly. Experience world-class seafood, drink natural wine at a new, trendy bar or enjoy first-class fine dining at one of the city’s Michelin-starred restaurants. In Gothenburg there is something for everyone!
In Gothenburg, you are always close to fresh air, water, rocks and forest. Head out to the archipelago and experience the sea and the idyllic islands, or familiarize yourself with the forest’s plants and wildlife by hiking some of the west coast’s trails. Just outside the city you will also find cozy mansions, cafes and fortresses. If you’d rather stay in town, a walk in the city park Slottsskogen is a wonderful autumn experience.
An awful lot of fun happens during the autumn holidays in Gothenburg. Halloween at Liseberg, for example, is a recurring family favorite, where ghosts ravage the park. On Halloween at Universeum, you can make your own slimy slime in the chemistry lab or compete in a vampire quiz, and at Alfons Åbergs Kulturhus there are plenty of fun things to do for the little ones.
A peaceful spa weekend, an archipelago stay near the sea or a design experience in the middle of town? In Gothenburg you’ll find lots of cosy hotels that offer both the pulse of the big city, relaxation or the unique nature of the west coast.
