Beautifully located on the west coast of Sweden and even though Gothenburg is the second-largest city in the country it has a small-town charm with a chill-out and friendly atmosphere. The sea and nature are just around the corner and you can reach the idyllic archipelago in no time.

A walk around the compact city centre will take you to shopping malls, arcades and small independent shops featuring local Gothenburg brands in fashion and interior design. The city has become a top spot for foodies and famous for its first-class seafood and you can enjoy everything from food trucks to classic neighbourhood eateries or Michelin-starred fine dining establishments.

Whatever your preference and age may be, Gothenburg offers everything from exciting museums, a good mix of shopping, beautiful nature to family-friendly activities and historical sites as well as a vibrant nightlife.
