Haga, Gothenburg

4.4
#1 of 20 in Sightseeing in Gothenburg
Historic Walking Area Tourist Spot
Walk the cobblestoned streets of Haga, the city's oldest neighborhood, which has experienced a renaissance in recent years. This quarter was founded in the 17th century, though most of its character and historical architecture reflects its roots as a 19th-century working-class district. After becoming a famous hippie hangout in the 1970s, this area was renovated in the 1980s. Today this trendy neighborhood boasts lovely wooden houses, boutique shops, and locally owned cafes, restaurants, and bars. Make Haga a centerpiece of your Gothenburg vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Gothenburg vacation route planner.

  • Good food variety, you can select the dish size, which is good in my opinion. The food I selected was rich is taste and spicy. There is a nice bar watching the street inside, sitting tables inside and outside for a sunny day. The price is reasonable. Service is welcoming. No wifi.
  • Food is amazing, really amazing! The products taste fresh and they have a lot of variety. I loved the idea of the "1 plate - 4 items + soup", which lets you try different options at once and for a very good price. There are plenty of vegan options (mostly vegan). Oh, and what got my attention is the dog-friendly facilities outside (water)!
  • Nicest staff! Really good food, many options (vegan & vegetarian). Desserts however a few vegan but mostly vegetarian ovo-lacto. A homemade lemonade you just have to try! A new favorite.
  • Very friendly staff and they only serve vegetarian food. Try the sampling platter and don't miss out on their baked goods for dessert or "fika" :)
  • What a amazing place and amazing people. The food is great.

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.
