Streetfood and Scandi cool in Gothenburg
Been to Copenhagen and loved it? Then Sweden’s second city may be for you.
Known for its vinyl record stores (such as Bengans), thriving coffee culture (or fika) and its mouthwatering streetfood, Gothenburg has a friendly, Scandi-cool vibe that will make you envy its citizens.
The city is home to Scandinavia’s largest amusement park, Liseberg. Open since 1923, its old-school fairground attractions are redolent of Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens, but overall, Liseberg has a more commercial feel.
Gothenburg even has staggering natural beauty on its doorstep. To experience it, jump on a ferry and island hop around the its archipelago (many of its 20 islands are car-free, some are even uninhabited).
