Gothenburg is a beautiful coastal city, famous for Volvo, magical islands and some of the best seafood in the world. Gothenburg is the largest non-capital in the Nordic countries, located on the beautiful west coast of Sweden.
The city is encircled by rocky shoreline, deep forests, tranquil lakes and the surging sea to the west. No other Swedish city gives such easy access to nature. Right on the doorstep are wide open spaces and magical islands.
May is a lovely month to visit, buzzing with anticipation for the upcoming summer. The weather is hard to predict, it can be anywhere between 10 and 30 degrees Celsius at the end of the month.
As the rain may fall or sun might shine, it’s good to know there are things to do both outdoors and indoors. Why not visit one of our great, blooming parks, an island or – if you’re feeling adventurous – the amusement park, Liseberg. In May, it has opened for the summer season, but is not yet packed with families on vacation.
Indoors activities include museums, a few shopping centres and many, many cafés where you can enjoy a Swedish fika – coffee with a sweet treat.
