Why Go on a Tour of Gothenburg

So you've probably heard about Stockholm and Malmö and maybe even Visby, but what do you know about the travelers' second favorite city in Sweden, Gothenburg? Let's start with its location!

The city of Gothenburg is a significant seaport that sits on the country's west coast. Hence, you can already guess what type of food you can try in the street markets, right? Without a doubt, the best seafood in the area, fish and shellfish are the real specialties here.

Besides tasting the local flavors, another huge recommendation that everyone should add to their Gothenburg tour agenda is the Museum of Art, which was titled as "Museum of the Year" last year. Here you would come across masterpieces by Edvard Munch, Rembrandt, Rubens, Monet, Picasso, and other famous names of the art world.

After getting to know the gastronomic and artistic sides of the city, it's always a good idea to balance your trip with some time in nature. A day trip to the Gothenburg archipelago will surely inspire and fill your day with views of picturesque fishing villages and granite cliffs.

Upon return to the city, don't miss out on the Feskekôrka fish market, which is a true symbol of the city that has been offering a variety of seafood delicacies since 1874. Even if you had enough of seafood, the iconic building is a must to pass by during your Gothenburg walking tour.

And if at the end of the day, you still lack a bit of thrill, pay a visit to Scandinavia's largest amusement park, which is open during the warmer months, called Liseberg.
