Gothenburg

4.1

Little London

Situated on Sweden's western coastline, Gothenburg attracts visitors with cultural festivals, a lively music scene, and a blend of classical and modern architecture. Home to a large student population, which makes a significant contribution to the city's youthful and energetic atmosphere, Gothenburg once served as the center of Sweden's shipbuilding industry. Although evidence of its working-class roots remains visible in and around the old harbor, most of the city's waterfront now serves as a busy tourist-driven area, offering easy access to fine museums, trendy cafes, and chic stores. To see Gothenburg from a slightly different perspective, take a guided boat tour of the city's famed 17th-century canals. Whether you only want to go to Gothenburg, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly Sweden trip itinerary builder.

Where to stay in Gothenburg

Gothenburg has much to offer in the way of accommodations, all relatively close to the city center. You'll find a number of upscale hotels in the city center and on the outskirts of the city as well, that offer a luxurious, private retreat. There are a few mid-range options here in the form of hotels and bed and breakfasts. Budget-conscious travelers can seek out a number of hostels and guesthouses, or rent an apartment and save money on food by cooking at home. If you're feeling a bit more adventurous, opt to stay at one of the many campsites. No matter what your price point, be sure to book in advance.
