Gothenburg

The city by the sea

Pay a visit to Gothenburg. Go on a Paddan tour along the canals, or take an archipelago boat out to the New Älvsborg Fortress. Haga has lovely cafés and shops, and of course you’ll be getting your fresh fish in the famous Feskekörka fish market. If you want to experience animals and nature in an orderly fashion, then Gothenburg’s Natural History Museum is well worth a visit. And why not climb up to the Masthugget church on Stigberget and enjoy the fantastic view? STF has hostels and hotels both in the city and outside it.
AT LISEBERG, YOU CAN HAVE A GO ON BALDER, ONE OF THE WORLD’S BEST WOODEN ROLLER COASTERS.

"Go on an excursion to the charming woods around Lake Delsjön. Take a picnic, barbecue some sausages or simply enjoy the tranquillity. If you want to swim, there is an excellent beach with rock slabs all around."

Tatiana Vetter, Head of Reception, STF Gothenburg City Hotel and Hostel

The archipelago boats run all year round, and if you go to the southern archipelago, you can travel on the same ticket as you use on the tram.
