  • Great place to get an overview of the city and take some photos. It is near the haga area where you can find delicious treats.
  • Easy walk to a great lookout. The tower is pretty cool, with cannons on the ground.
  • Very nice view and reading about this historic place. Would be great with even more signs and info about what has happened here.
  • Good place in center of city ...view from the top is quite amazing ...
  • Great place for Hill and/or stair repeats xD

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.
