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.

  • Good workout to take the stairs up to the top! 365 degrees great view over the city. Take the other way down by taking the path. You can reach Haga, the oldest part of Gothenburg from here as well.  more »

  • It is a perfect detour while walking and exploring Haga Nygatan. Before climbing around 200 steps towards the top, don't forget to notice the mini garden on the right. The views from the top are unique and satisfying after the climb. Good photographic opportunity and healthy climb for all ages!
  • It really a wonderful place to have a 360 degree look at the city around the centre. There are two ways to go up but the best one is to climb around 200 stairs.
  • Old town of Haga district in Gothenburg. Very unique and original. Lots of hipsters on the street! :p
  • A scenic uphill walk followed by a nice new perspective over the area.
  • I must warn you, the stairs are pretty steep. We were huffing and puffing by the time we'd climbed to the top of the hill. But the views and tranquility here......its worth it.
