Gothenburg is known for its relaxed atmosphere, panoramic views and beautiful nature. Book flights to Gothenburg and visit the Cathedral and the New Älvsborg Fortress, or climb aboard a rollercoaster at the Liseberg amusement park. As the old town is surrounded by a canal, it is great fun to explore the city by boat. Or take the ferry to the amazing Southern Gothenburg Archipelago, where you'll find picturesque fishing villages and dozens of animal species on the many islands.

From Avenyn to the butterfly house
Sooner or later everyone ends up on the city’s showpiece: Avenyn, or the Avenue. This lively boulevard is full of cafés, restaurants and pubs. At the very end of Avenyn you can find the Götaplatsen. This square houses the City Theatre, the Art Museum and of course the Concert Hall, home to Gothenburg’s world-famous symphony. Prefer to relax in a green space? Head for Trädgårdsföreningen, a gorgeous park in the middle of the city and home to Sweden’s largest rose garden and a butterfly house.
