Gothenburg is a charming town that has many attractions on offer.

This park is known as the "green lung" of the city, and is located near the city centre.
Next, explore the ‘archipelago’ of Gothenburg - which makes up more than 20 islands. Not far from the town centre you can explore quaint villages, breathtaking nature and beaches. At the northern part of the archipelago, you can drive your rental car and take a ferry to Lilla Varholmen and Hisingen.
