The Poseidon statue, Håkan Hellström at Ullevi Stadium, the characteristic “landshövdingehus” buildings in Haga – some things are just true Gothenburg classics. Here are some of the must-see neighbourhoods.
Many of Gothenburg’s former working class areas are now teeming with creativity and entrepreneurship. Here you’ll find everything from vintage shops and art galleries to hip cafes and a thriving restaurant scene.
By the Water
Gothenburg has the surging salty sea at its doorstep, and there are many areas where you can enjoy shimmering waters and the sound of the waves.
There are some parts of the city that (almost) never sleep, weekends and working days alike. On these streets you’ll find locals going shopping and enjoying a lunch, coffee or drink together.
Hip and trendy
When The New York Times or The Guardian come to visit, they fall in love with these neighbourhoods (and even name them the coolest ones in Europe!) Here you’ll find the trendy, yet genuinely relaxed, Gothenburg.
Beyond the City Centre
Seen it all? Explore Gothenburg beyond the city centre. 15–20 minutes away you’ll find vast nature areas, multiculture and exciting food experiences.
