Food and beverages
Light up the dark autumn days with sparks and joy
Liseberg brings joy on so many occasions throughout the year, and in November they bring double the joy. From October 11th to November 3rd, the whole amusement park transforms into a thrilling and scary spot. Halloween has come to Liseberg, and the selection of scary things to do is bigger than ever. If you don’t like Halloween, and just want to have a cosy time, you can wait until November 15th, when the park instead becomes a winter wonderland. Millions of lights are brightening up the whole park, and the christmas market offers a variety of Swedish homemade handicrafts and food.
Right outside Gothenburg, you can visit the biggest light show in the Nordics up until November 3rd. Lights in Alingsås is celebrating 20 years and will take you on an amazing journey through various light installations. Choose between a guided tour, or just stroll around yourself and admire all the colours and lights.
If you want laughter and comedy you should head to Pustervik on November 21st. Brooklyn Brewery’s tour Brooklyn HaHa stops in Gothenburg, where comedians from Sweden and New York take turns in proving who has the best jokes. There is no entrance fee but try to be there early since the space is limited.
On November 29th, Änglaljus is celebrating 25 years. The concert is held in Smyrnakyrkan, which creates a very special christmas atmosphere easy to embrace. Outdoor torches, ginger bread, cosy scarves and woolen hats – can it get any better? This year, among others, Linda Lampenius, Py Bäckman and Sofia Källgren are participating.
If you are excited for Halloween, and belong to the city's youngest crowd, you should go to Boulebar in Rosenlund. Dunderklubben are hosting a Halloween-disco for kids (and their parents) on November 3rd – and you are welcome! Dressed up or not.
Get cultural with some live music
What is a month without any big and well performed concerts? On November 9th, the iconic German band Alphaville enters the stage at Trädgår’n in Gothenburg. This year marks the 35-year anniversary since they released the famous album Forever Young with songs like Big in Japan and Forever Young.
In Gothenburg, there are even more events with iconic music. During all November weekends, the classical, well-known and beloved Sound of Music is coming to Lisebergsteatern. The story of Maria and the von Trapp family in Austria during the 30s is one of the biggest and most successful musicals in history, and now it is finally coming to Gothenburg. This is a show you don’t want to miss!
If you can’t get enough of concerts at Trädgår’n in November, you should buy tickets to the Ignorance is Bliss Tour by Skepta. Grime as a music genre has gained in popularity lately, and the British artist is one of the big names here. Prepare yourself for an evening with lots of gibes and good music.
Step into another world
On November 5th you get the chance to watch a movie for free at Pustervik. Stora Klubben will be open, showing Amazing Grace, which tells the story of Aretha Franklin and her life as a true soul queen.
If you instead want to relax in the form of yoga, you should attend the yoga concert on November 24th. You will practice a class of yin yoga together with Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra. The yoga has been built around the music, and the theme of this month’s concert is “darkness”. This is not your regular yoga experience, and to make it extra cosy you are more than welcome to bring your socks, a knitted shirt or a blanket to embrace the dark and cold November. The class is open for all levels – anyone can join!
