I have only been to Gothenburg twice, but it is a really green, livable city and great for a weekend city trip.
Gothenburg – my favorite places to stay
- Elite Park Avenue Hotel. Rooms are fine, but the lobby, the breakfast, bar and restaurant are amazing.
Gothenburg – my favorite places to eat
- Smaka has some great traditional köttbullar, the Swedish meat balls made famous by IKEA (but in contrast to IKEA, these are actually tasty).
- Feskekôrka is a rather small (but nevertheless very tasty) food (mainly fish) market in an old church in Gothenburg. Great for a quick bite.
- The Barn has maybe the best burgers I ever had.
- We had amazing dumplings at Dubbel Dubbel.
Gothenburg – my favorite places to go out for a drink
- Björns Bar is a very good wine bar with great bites below the famous Koka restaurant.
- Da Matteo is a great coffee place. They actually supply other bars and restaurants with coffee as well.
- Ölrepubliken has a wide variety of beers.
Gothenburg – my favorite things to do
- The Haga neighborhood has some great, cosy shopping streets.
- The Palmhuset (Palm House) is an impressive botanical garden in the middle of a park. It is
- One of the things I like most about Gothenburg is the fact that less than 30 minutes outside of the city, you will have some beautiful quiet pieces of nature. We loved visiting Vrångö, the southernmost island of the Gothenburg archipelago. We got there via tram and a small ferry boat.
- There are quite some nice furniture stores in Gothenburg, of which we liked Artilleriet very much.
- Liseberg theme park is nice for both kids and adults, but make sure it’s open when you’re in Gothenburg (they close during winter).
Gothenburg – my favorite places to get some work done
- Da Matteo in the city center has some great coffee and wifi. Besides that, it is rather spacious, which makes it a great base to get some work done.
