Plan your journey from Goteborg City Airport
Take Tuvevägen for 30 minutes from the airport and you’ll arrive in downtown Goteborg (also known as Gothenburg). This charming city is full of attractions: fishing boats crowd the harbour, neoclassical architecture dominates the streets, and there are canals aplenty.
Spend time shopping at the boutiques lining Östra Hamngatan, or relax at Kungsparken (King’s Park). Seafood is a common feature of the cuisine here, so head to Feskekӧrka fish market and eat like a local. Then move on to Haga, one of the oldest parts of the city, dating back to the 17th century, and pop in for fika at one of the sidewalk cafes. The trendy neighbourhood around Magasinsgatan is another great place for dining options.
Art lovers should go to the Gӧteborgs konstmuseum (Gothenburg Museum of Art), where you’ll find paintings by Swedish artist, Carl Larsson along with works by Munch, Picasso, Monet, Rembrandt, and more. The Universeum, a science and natural history museum, is also well worth a visit, and widely considered one of the best places in the country for a family day out. Liseberg, the largest amusement park in Scandinavia, guarantees thrills for adrenalin lovers, and boasts Europe’s tallest free-fall tower, the AtmosFear, which stands at 116m tall.
For those interested in medieval history, visit the Älvsborg Fortress in Goteborg’s harbour, and the Skansen Kronan fortress, which was finished in 1697.

Beyond GoteborgIt may be difficult to leave Goteborg behind, but western Sweden has so much more to offer.
A drive along the Bohuslän coast is easily one of the most breathtaking road trips you’ll take in Scandinavia. Take the E6 from Goteborg, which extends all the way to the Norwegian border, and enjoy the sights along the way. As you cruise along, you’ll be treated to views of the western archipelago – a seascape of more than 8,000 islands and islets. You can even take a ferry to many of the smaller fishing villages.
This quaint and tiny town is less than a two-hour drive from Goteborg via Route 171. It’s home to Sweden’s longest boardwalk, which includes a stretch of brightly painted sea huts on the water, making for a picture-perfect setting. Seafood is the specialty here, so order a prawn sandwich from one of the local eateries and enjoy the harbour views.
Klädesholmen island is one of Sweden’s favourite fishing islands and easily reached in an hour from Goteborg along Route 169, with a bridge crossing at Stenungsund. Herring is a staple here and there’s even a museum dedicated to the fish. The cute white and red wooden cottages in the town showcase quintessential Sweden at its finest.
Explore western Sweden with the ease and convenience of an Avis hire car.
