The best things to do in Gothenburg

Wondering what to do in Gothenburg? This beatiful city by the sea has a long and interesting history. You'll have no problem filling an itinerary with Gothenburg activities to make your stay unforgettable.

The archipelago is one of the best places to visit in Gothenburg. You can travel by boat to visit the New Älvsborg fortress, with its lighthouse, and Vinga and Styrsö islands. There are plenty of things to do in Gothenburg besides seeing the islets: for example, you can relax in an algae bath, which is far more enjoyable than it might sound!

Within the city centre, top attractions in Gothenburg include Kungsportsavenyn, colloquially called Avenyn, the main boulevard of the city. It stretches from the old pit to Götaplatsen, a square in which you can find the Museum of Fine Arts, the concert hall, and the Municipal Theatre, all interesting things to see in Gothenburg. On the way you will also find more Gothenburg attractions like the Grand Theatre and the city library. Here you can enjoy a good coffee or eat at one of their restaurants. Look to the many city parks if you'd like stuff to do in Gothenburg in the open air. The best known are Slottsskogen, known as the Castle Forest, and Vasaparken, a park where the University of Gothenburg is located. We must also mention Trädgårdsföreningen Park, the botanical garden, and the Söderlingska Park, all noted for their stunning natural beauty.
