About Gothenburg

Established in 1621, Gothenburg on the west coast of Sweden has practically everything you expect to find in a large lively city – yet within walking distance. Once, a main harbour for trade towards the west, the Gothenburg of today offers an open and relaxed atmosphere, great places to eat, trendy shops and an absolutely unique archipelago to explore. Al fresco drinking and dining officially opens on 1 April every year (according to local regulations) and Gothenburg’s open-air cafés and beer gardens will be set up and ready to enjoy all around town during the week of the International Forum.

If you have a few extra hours to spend, the amazing archipelago with its picturesque car-free islands is easily accessible and just a short boat ride from the mainland (there is a tram service from central Gothenburg to the boat service).
