From downtown Gothenburg you can also go by boat to the islands in the beatiful archipelago whre you can enjoy fishing, swimming or fantastic sea food dinners at one of the many small restaurants on the islands.
Everything is close at hand in this compact city on the west coast of Sweden. Whether you yearn for the tranquillity of the coast and islands, fascinating new culture, charming walks in the city or an evening of good food and nightlife, Gothenburg has something for you.
The range of shopping and entertainment makes it feel like a big city, but when it comes to atmosphere and warmth, Gothenburg has its own special charm.
Trade, shipping and international contacts have distinguished Goteborg ever since the city was founded in 1621 by Gustav II Adolf. It was built by Dutchmen, and in the 17th century the official languages were Dutch, German, Swedish and English.
In the 18th century The Swedish East India Company began trading with the east. Porcelain, tea, spices, textiles and other luxury goods of the time were shipped to Goteborg.
In the 19th century Goteborg became industrialised, largely due to the arrival of Scottish and English businessmen. Over the years many became rich, and they founded a hospital, library and university.Modern-day Goteborg with its wide boulevards, parks and stone houses was built around the end of the 19th century.
Its closeness to the sea makes Gothenburg special. The coast and islands are renowned for their natural beauty and picturesque habitation. It’s easy to get there any time of the year. A half-hour tram ride and a boat onwards will take you straight out to the southern archipelago.
There are around thirty islands of various sizes, from larger islands with houses and places to fish, to small deserted islets and skerries. Several are nature reserves with their own unique flora and fauna, and all offer wonderful bathing, either from sandy beaches or smooth rock shores.
