  • Lilla Bommen is located at the entrance of the port a few steps from the Central station and the shopping centre Nordstan. In the high-rise, called the lipstick, is a good lunch restaurant and conference rooms. In the area outside the lipstick is a Marina for boats and in summer some outdoor cafes. More a stone's throw away is the Opera House, which opened in the early 1980s. In the Opera House is a very good lunch restaurant

  • Interesting building, that is called lipstick. I would call it a spaceship or rocket. Good orientation point can be visible from fear away.
  • Ugly building, nice view.
  • Perfect place to start your Gothenburg tour. You can see the whole town from the top.
  • Amazing art in building
  • Good quantity for lunch, OK taste
