Discover the top sights of Gothenburg with a knowledgeable local guide.


Welcome to Gothenburg, - the gateway to the west! I create a discovery tour, based on your wishes. We will travel by public transportation, to experience the real Gothenburg city life. Gothenburg is known as the green city. Visit or pass by the Botanical Garden, Tradgardsforeningen, with the impressive Palm House, and the Slottskogen Park, where you also find moose in the zoo. From the Masthuggs Church, you will enjoy an impressive view of the town. Many old wooden houses are preserved in Haga, first suburb of Gothenburg. For sea food lovers, the "Fish Church" is a must. (Not open on Sundays and Mondays). Located at the Gota Square, the culture centre of Gothenburg, are the Art Museum, the Hasselblad Photo Exhibition, the Concert Hall and the Municipal Theatre. At Gustav Adolf Square rises the statue of the founder of the city, king Gustav II Adolf. At the Maritime Centre, along the Gota river quay, 19 different ships are docked. Here is also the new Opera House located, as well as the guest harbour.
