  • If you like the ports and ships it's the right place to be there.You can stay in the Hotel Barken Viking(recommended),you can go to the Opera House, you can see a lot of the historical ships there. 
  • It is a promenade along the major rivers crossing the Göteborg. Walk West on this road include Opera, Maritiman. It is just be honest. Is along the river than I thought without the wind in winter could now walk comfortably.

  • Nice to go here for a walk at lunch, especially if it is winter sun, but it has its own charm.

  • 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
