  • Slottsskogen is a very large park. You can come here with many different expectations and get them fulfilled. Here finn for the small one of Gothenburg's best playgrounds with staff. You can visit the Zoo and watching the animals from the North that are held in various enclosures. You can see when the seals are fed. and feed the ducks yourself in different ponds. There are large lawns where you can have a pic-nic or coffee. There are several restaurants where you can have lunch and then some. Finally, there are many walk or exercise loops that are beautiful and suitable for prams or wheelchairs.

  • Very nice place to walk around in ,good place to get away from the stress in the city's
  • Wonderful park area in downtown Gothenburg. If you're lucky with the weather it's definitely worth a visit especially if you haven't seen some of the animals they have at the zoo. Especially fun for kids is the small petting zoo they have, exclusive for kids! There are also plenty of restaurants in and around the park to enjoy a Swedish fika.
  • Amazing spacious park. Big playground for children and the cafe/bar close by the lake has some very cosy seats close by the water.
  • Best place in Gothenburg to bring a grill and enjoy nature. Also great place for running or strolling around. Very popular with families.
  • A beautiful park in Gothenburg. There's no shortage of trails here, and the views are lovely. There's also penguins, seals, moose and other animals to view (for free) and lots of places to take pictures, have a picnic or just relax.
