The event district is found around Korsvägen and along Skånegatan, past the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre and arenas like Scandinavium and Ullevi. There is always something going on here – from large concerts to sports events and annual highlights such as the Göteborg Book Fair. With Liseberg amusement park, Universeum Science Centre and the Museum of World Culture there is no lack of fun activities for the whole family, come rain or shine.

Several hotels are found here and you can choose between for example Gothia Towers and Scandic Opalen. Looking for something special? Try Upper House, the boutique hotel at the top of Gothia Towers’ second tower, complete with a gourmet restaurant and a spa. The outdoor pool hangs from the side of the skyscraper and offers excellent views of Liseberg amusement park. It has a see-through glass bottom – a swim here is not for the faint-hearted. Another option (where you don’t need a bikini) is the skybar Heaven 23, where you can have a shrimp sandwich and cocktail with a view. The main boulevard Avenyn with all of its restaurants and entertainment is just a stone’s throw away.
