GOTHENBURG - the best insider tips for vacation, holiday & travel

Being Sweden’s second largest city, it is amazing how Gothenburg is still able to retain its small town appeal in an urban environment. Founded by King Gustav Adolf II during the glory days of the Swedish Empire, this city was once a ship making industry center. But due to competition, dry docks shut down, which later on became the center for education and technology, and ideal venue for conventions, concerts, and sporting events.


When visiting, it is advisable to have a Gothenburg Access Pass for easy public transportation (including boat trips) and entrances to almost all establishments and major tourist spots in the city – Gothenburg Museum of World Cultures, the city Art Museum, City Museum, Maritime Museum Aquarium, The Sports Museum, Rohsska Museum, Medical History Museum, Casino Cosmopol, Maritiman, Guided tour to Gunnebo House, Greenhouses in the Botanical Garden, The Garden Society of Gothenburg, Stinsen Sightseeing, Roda Sten, Aeroseum, Molndals Museum, and Volvo Museum. Purchase a one day pass for SEK245 or pay SEK390 for a two-day access.


Gothenburg has four seasons with small temperature range. Winter is dark, brightened by white snow caps with temperature not exceeding 2°C or 3°C during January and February. The lowest temperature ever recorded was -20°C. During summer, temperature can be as high as 20°C in July. Significant snowfalls and cold temperatures can still be experienced during early spring until the month of May, which marks the beginning of summer. Autumn is generally wet, most especially during October.
