A lot has happened in the neighbourhood Rosenlund over the past few years and a number of trendy restaurants have opened around Esperantoplatsen and along the street Rosenlundsgatan.

When it comes to food you can for example choose between dim sum at Dubbel Dubbel or a Korean-Mexican fusion at Market. Barabicu and Zamenhof are two other popular choices for a night out, and if you like boule you just have to head to Boulebar for a game (indoors all year round) and some food.

Explore the “fish church”

The seafood market hall Feskekôrka (fish church in Swedish) is one of Gothenburg’s most iconic landmarks. It was designed by city architect Victor von Gegerfelt and built in 1874. The building was always intended as a market hall, but the design is highly church-inspired. Up until September 2020, the building was home to a popular fish and seafood market, which is planned to open again in 2023.

Lemon Garden

Pancakes, Belgian waffles, bowls and smoothies are just some of the dishes from Lemon Garden’s menu. Here you can have brunch in the company of a green and flamboyant environment where several parts of the café have been covered in vegetation. Here, they have created a brunch concept consisting of desserts and smoothies in combination with lighter dishes.

The Carolus Rex bastion

The Carolus Rex bastion from the 17th century is the only one preserved of a total of 13 bastions that were part of the moat around Gothenburg. A bastion is a pointed defensive structure that forms a projecting part of the fortress rampart and, through its pointed shapes, can eliminate blind spots along the fortress walls.

Röda Rummet

Alba and Röda Rummet

In the newly built houses on the street Järntorgsgatan you’ll find the brasserie Alba and its back pocket patisserie Röda Rummet. At Alba, French cooking techniques are mixed in combination with a New Nordic cuisine and a classic three-course menu, and at sister bar Röda Rummet, cakes and pastries are served in a lovely symbiosis of fun drinks.

Schnitzelplatz Lagerhuset

Schnitzelplatz is located in the 1920s building Lagerhuset, which you’ll find in the middle of Gothenburg between the city’s two centers. The restaurant’s owner has many years of experience in pounding, breading and serving, but above all eating schnitzel. Here you can count on a really good and well-made schnitzel and world-class Czech pilsner.

Heurlins (named after the square outside) was the first of the Clarion Hotel Draken’s restaurants to open. In the premises you will find partly a bistro with street food from the sea and local beer and wine, partly a modern patisserie with pastries and bubbly drinks.

Queen Christina’s hunting lodge

Queen Christina’s hunting lodge is an 18th-century building (rebuilt in the 19th century) located on Otterhällan by Kungshöjd in central Gothenburg. The building has nothing to do with Queen Christina. The name is said to have arisen from the fact that during the 18th century a tavern was allegedly operated in the house, which was then not too far from the Christina Regina (Queen Christina) bastion. The tavern in the house is said to have been well frequented by the bastion’s jacks and therefore, with a bit of humour, got its name. During the 1970s, the house was moved to its current location, approximately 100 meters from its original location.
