Trip Planner : Europe / Sweden / West Coast / Vastra Gotaland County / Gothenburg
Situated on Sweden's western coastline, Gothenburg attracts visitors with cultural festivals, a lively music scene, and a blend of classical and modern architecture. Home to a large student population, which makes a significant contribution to the city's youthful and energetic atmosphere, Gothenburg once served as the center of Sweden's shipbuilding industry. Although evidence of its working-class roots remains visible in and around the old harbor, most of the city's waterfront now serves as a busy tourist-driven area, offering easy access to fine museums, trendy cafes, and chic stores. To see Gothenburg from a slightly different perspective, take a guided boat tour of the city's famed 17th-century canals. Use our Sweden trip planning tool to arrange your visit to Gothenburg and other destinations in Sweden.

Our expert advice on where to stay in Gothenburg
Gothenburg has much to offer in the way of accommodations, all relatively close to the city center. You'll find a number of upscale hotels in the city center and on the outskirts of the city as well, that offer a luxurious, private retreat. There are a few mid-range options here in the form of hotels and bed and breakfasts. Budget-conscious travelers can seek out a number of hostels and guesthouses, or rent an apartment and save money on food by cooking at home. If you're feeling a bit more adventurous, opt to stay at one of the many campsites. No matter what your price point, be sure to book in advance.
