Gothenburg Overview

Looking for a city that has a rich cultural scene with theater and music at its core, and with culinary gems boasting coveted awards? Then Gothenburg is a great choice to consider. It offers ideal weather year-round and features some of the best world-class festivals.  Sweden’s best kept secret is an ideal vacation destination for anyone looking to enjoy the good life. 

Gothenburg is not only Sweden’s second largest city but also home to the best of what the country has to offer.  It’s renowned for top dining, a plethora of cultural attractions, outdoor activities, and even good weather.  Despite the fact that Gothenburg sits in a northern latitude, it’s blessed with a mild climate.  It also offers warmer temperatures than other cities located within the same geographical position.  During the summer months, visitors can enjoy long days of sunshine, and in winter they can relish in knowing it’s not as cold as it is elsewhere. 

If you plan your stay throughout the cold season, you’ll find that Gothenburg becomes a spectacular wonderland.  With decorations, lights, and a celebratory mood, it’s a hard place to resist. 
The city’s Christmas Market has everything you would need to make the holidays memorable.  It’s also said to be the biggest in Scandinavia, and is loads of fun for the entire family.  Children can enjoy reindeer rides while the adults can shop for ornaments, knitwear, and all types of Nordic souvenirs.  There’s even an ice skating rink for anyone inclined to demonstrate its figure skating abilities.      

Anytime you visit Gothenburg you’ll find that there’s no lack of cultural events.  Gothenburg has a wealth of venues where visitors can see theatrical productions or go to music concerts.  And did you know that Gothenburg is home to important composers like Kurt Attenberg?  Gothenburg is full of surprises and all of them are pleasant. 
Apart from the wide selection of options, there are yearly festivals said to be the top in the continent.  Among the most popular are the Gothenburg Film Festival and the Gothenburg Book Fair.  They both attract celebrities and collectors from around the globe. 

Sports are also a very important feature of Gothenburg’s lifestyle.  It’s here where Sweden gained affection for the game of football and where important championships take place every year.  Travelers can purchase tickets to all sorts of matches including ice hockey and basketball. 

Gothenburg features a wealth of traditions and products in its cuisine.  Seafood of course reigns supreme followed by unparalleled varieties of game.  Many of the Gothenburg restaurants have won high praise in the gastronomic industry and hold stars in the Michelin Guide. 

You can’t beat the shopping opportunities either.  With malls and avenues dotted with boutiques there’s no reason why you would need to go elsewhere.  In Gothenburg, the latest and trendiest makes it to the stores’ windows before it makes it to the fashion magazines.
