Gothenburg On the Road

Gothenburg, Sweden
Even though foreigners mostly ignore this Scandinavian city, it is in fact a visit worth making. Generally, Sweden is one of the most familiy-friendly destinations and Gothenburg, the second city in Sweeden, doesn't disappoint with her parks, canals and flower gardens.

First of all, it has a magnificant habour, where you can enjoy many activities. Visit one of many museums to take you through the history of Sweden or even the Universeum, a science museum that gives you the opportunity to explore everything from the nature to technology.

Take a walk in the streets of Gothenburg, and enjoy the great Swedish atmosphere and go shopping in the charming streets filled with shops and caf├Ęs. Quirky fact: Gothenburg's streets are heated from underneath, so that in winter the snow melts instantly!

Looking for some fun? You can go to the Liseberg Amusement Park, the biggest tourist attraction in Sweden and the largest tourist park in Northern Europe. You can enjoy a whole day with the famlily, and see if you have the nerves to try all of the attractions, such as the newest Gasten Ghost Hotel or maybe the white-water trip.

Otherwise you can use Gothenburg as a starting point for exploring the rest of Scandinavia, with its 3 capital cities, Stockholm, Oslo and Copenhagen beeing just a few hours away.
