Visited the Volvo museum back in March 2020 - just before Covid got bad. The museum itself is a bit outside Gothenburg so a taxi / Uber may be needed if not driving. The museum is absolutely fascinating, and the collection of both historic and modern Volvo cars is seriously impressive, as well as concept cars. I can highly recommend

World Heritage Grimeton Radio Station

Reviewed By tinaq_reviews - Moscow, Russia

A unique World heritage site, this Radio station is one of the industrial cultural heritage sites of Europe. It is very interesting and its place in history of 20th century is remarkable. There were no guided tours on the day we visited, so we just walked around, bought some souvenirs and enjoyed the small museum inside an air raid bunker. Best to be visited by car, the closest bus stop is still quite far away.

IF NOT IN TROLLHATTEN - WHERE ELSE ? I am not the *regular* tourist, hanging froma camera - I am just a SAAB LOVER ! A member of the ResqueSaab,org for almost 10 years. And, of course, I drive a Saab 9.3 =Made in Trollhatten.... Why am I writing about Trollhatten from Sweden ? Well, I can think of just two reasons : 1) At my 3-rd Saab, I was anxious and depressed at the thought that the PEOPLE OF TROLLHATTEN do not love enough the Saab - to keep it safe, AT HOME ! ...hen I was relieved - Saab stayed at home ! The beautiful green burgh of the Highway Vikings ! 2) I love Sweden...from mmy Down - South Romania ...I wish I could see Trollhatten, again! sometime !

Maritiman

Reviewed By sflynn8 - Limerick, Ireland

This is a very interesting attraction in the centre of Gothenburg. We were able to visit a navel destroyer,a submarine and several other ships. The submarine was the highlight of our visit. The cost is reasonable and it was a lovely way to pass a couple of hours.

This was a great tour. It's an underground museum, full of planes and it's mind-blowing reading through the plane assembling details. Learning about world wars and bombs. It's sweetable for all ages. I have enjoyed my vacation
