Specialty Museum Museum
Maritiman keeps your curiosity afloat with a collection of 15 moored museum boats. Experience life at sea without ever leaving the harbor aboard the largest warship in Scandinavia, the Jagaren Småland destroyer. Climb ladders through cargo ships, lightships, a port ferry, and tow boats on this floating maritime museum. Go below the water to explore the submarine HMS Nordkaparan. The site offers an app and audio guide for download, or you can opt for a guided tour given by a former veteran. Stop by the cafe for traditional Swedish waffles with whipped cream and jam to end your authentic maritime experience. Make Maritiman a centerpiece of your Gothenburg vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Gothenburg vacation route planner.

  • Awesome, just don't go on a cold day.
  • Old warships, including a submarine. Well worth a visit if you like this kind of thing.
  • Very unique experience for me being from Canada considering I live on the water. The submarine and destroyer are well worth the price of admission. The other boats were ok.
  • They have some really nice old boats that you can visit. The submarine is popular!
  • Somewhat pricey for one-time visitors, but otherwise cheap as the ticket provided is valid for one year. A unique chance to see submarines, battleships and more from the inside, covering everything from machine rooms to the commander's bridge.

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.
