With its canals, 17th-century architecture, vibrant café culture and wealth of museums, Sweden’s second city is well worth a visit. December is particularly special thanks to Gothenburg’s 2019 Christmas markets. We supply detailed information to help you explore, including a self-guided city walking tour.
Gothenburg is Sweden’s second largest city, characterised by broad avenues and attractive canals. Whether you visit Gothenburg for a Christmas market break or as part of a journey linking Nordic cities, you have plenty of time to explore at a leisurely pace – with no group, your days are your own. We arrange accommodation at a central hotel with a renowned café and provide full information to help you explore the main and lesser-known sights, the rest is up to you…
It’s not just the stalls which make the Christmas markets in Gothenburg, it’s the decorations too. The ‘Lane of Light’ stretches for three kilometres, and the Liseberg Christmas market in the heart of Gothenburg is illuminated by five million twinkling lights. Whether you come for the Christmas markets or not, another reason to visit Gothenburg is the food – not only does the city boast a strong café culture, it also enjoys a growing reputation as a mecca for food-lovers.
