Celebrate the wonders of the land and sea in Gothenburg, Sweden’s second-largest city and home to Liseberg amusement park, the country’s #1 tourist attraction.
Visiting Gothenburg Archipelago is a must, as is sampling everything from modern gastronomy to ‘fika’ to the fresh-caught wonders at Feskekörka (Fish Church). Be sure to take in the Gothenburg Museum of Art, stunning contemporary art at Röda Sten Art Centre, and – if you visit in August – the incredible Way Out West music festival.

Welcome to one of the largest botanical Gardens in Northern Europe. The cultivated part occupies 40 acres and holds about 12 000 species. It is a botanical garden with a strong emphasis on horticulture and the garden is divided into different sections linked by lawns with fine trees and shrubs. You will find a kitchen garden, a herb garden, perennial and annual borders, a Japanese glade, a rhododendron valley and a stunning rock garden with a waterfall. In the bulb garden you find species that are not grown anywhere else. The Greenhouses have more than 4 000 species including a large collection of orchids and carnivorous plants. The Eastern Island tree, extinct in its natural locality, is preserved here. The garden is bordering a nature reserve where also the arboretum is located.
It is not easy to get to if you are not familiar with the trolley system. Get some guidance, it's worth the effort. Stroll through the grounds ... the colors, the variety of plants and flowers, the vista's -- inspiring. You feel like you are exploring ... not standard trail but multiple paths - some out of the way, others follow the crowd. From Waterfalls to Japanese Gardens ... every corner you turn, some beautiful awaits you. don't rush .. take your time to enjoy and breath in the beauty.

You will want to bring a picnic here. It is open green space with a winding track up the hill and a mini zoo to go with it... what more could you want. Easy to access with transport and you can feel alone with hundreds of people nearby. Wonderful asset to Göteborg

Nice park, centrally located. Lawns, woodland, flowers, rose garden, two good cafés, a really nice playground for children, beautiful palm house and nice stroll along canal with nice old buildings on the other side. Always people there, but calm and relaxed anyway. Both young and old keep returning or just passing through.
Summertime open air Concerts. Also a restaurant-concert venue building with modern wood architecture.
Note: It is an enclosed park (with three entrances) and that it is closed during night (see closing hour at the entrance).
Minus: Busy road on two sides, so not that quiet.

The experience of entering an underground military base itself is worth the visit!
The museum shows you many different planes and tries to teach you about Sweden's military and the Cold War. There are several interaction points, so it becomes very interesting!
You can board at least one helicopter and some fighter jets.
There are a number of simulators which you can choose from (you should book as soon as you get to the museum, I am not sure if you can book in advance). The simulators are disappointing, but it might do for children.

This popular amusement park offers everything from thrill rides to quiet Gardens.
This is one of the best theme parks I have ever visited. Whilst it houses several fantastic rides, including (the worlds steepest?) wooden rollercoaster and several other fantastic rides, the highlights are the variety of attractions held throughout the year. Halloween cannot be missed, when they cover the grounds with pumpkins, hay and scarecrows and create a selection of amazing spookhouses, nor can winter, where the grounds are filled with Christmas decorations, markets, an ice skating rink with ice Performances and carol singers. The Christmas buffet is delicious also. No expense is spared in making this place amazing.
Also, if you have children the spelhuset inside offers unlimited gaming over three floors of pinball machines, virtual reality, air hockey and arcade games during school holiday periods in winter which is fantastic value.

Go to Vinga to see one of the most genuine Gothenburg places. This is the Island and the sea mark that have met sea farers coming to Gothenburg for hundreds of years. It was here the famous artist Evert Taube lived during his youth and got inspired by the sea and the fantastic landscape. I Think everuone can see the same as Mr Taube. You get ther by boat from the harbour in the central of Gothenburg and the bout trip in it self is an experience well Worth the effort.

A JOURNEY THROUGH VOLVO'S HISTORY Welcome to a world of iconic car models, groundbreaking innovations and imaginative prototypes. At Volvo Museum you can take a trip through Volvo's history and heritage, all the way from the start in 1927. Our collection encompasses a wide range of passenger cars, buses and heavy trucks as well as marine engines and construction equipment. But you don't have to be a petrolhead (or a dieselhead for that matter) to appreciate Volvo Museum. There's lots for everybody to experience - whether you want to learn about a unique piece of Swedish 20th century history or just want to be nostalgic about the good old times. And the youngest ones will enjoy the childrens' car -- a classic Volvo to play around in.
To be honest I wasn't too excited about visiting here as I'm not really a car enthusiast, however I was very pleasantly surprised! I really enjoyed the interactive aspects like being able to get in the trucks and buses and found the history very interesting. My boyfriend loved fawning over all of the old cars so we both had a really good day. The staff were really helpful and friendly too.

My husband and son visited the „Maritiman“ while my daughter and I walked the city. Both told me this museum is worth to visit but all provided information where written in Swedish! No translation in English or Other languages. That‘s a pity! Very interesting to go onboard on warships or a submarine but if you are not able to understand Swedish you won’t get facts. Despite the lack of translations we will recommend a „Maritiman“ visit.
There is one more negative point: the parking. The parking facilities are ok and adequate but to buy a park ticket seems to be impossible, for non-Swedish. There is a ticketing machine, but no chance to understand what you have to buy, to pay, whatever...
All is written in Swedish, the software is unable zu switch to another language! It was like gambling in a casino, then we got a park ticket for 1 hour (the plan we had was a two hour ticket)...
