With so many three-star hotels to choose from in Gothenburg, you can pick whatever kind of accommodation you want. Stay in a good value B&B along the banks of the canal or find a stylish hotel on the borders of on of Gothenburg’s many public parks. You can find quality lodging in central locations, which make great bases for exploring the rest of this lively, cultured city.
Take a rattling tram along the wide road of Avenyn and scout out your surroundings. This major thoroughfare is an essential stop for anyone who wants to shop, while the alleys branching off it are filled with smaller independent boutiques stocked with homegrown fashion brands. Head to Magasingatan, a pedestrianised street, for a day spent hopping between coffee houses and Swedish brand stores.
If you want to see the sights of Gothenburg rather than the shops, hop onto a canal boat or ‘paddan’. Tours on the 17th-century canals and rivers can take you right through the heart of the city, past a church-shaped fish market, an eye-catching modern opera house and historic gardens.
Find a bargain on a three-star hotel in Gothenburg city centre and you’ll have more money to spend on family days out. There’s no shortage of options: the roller coasters of Liseberg Amusement Park are an obvious choice, but there are plenty of central attractions aimed at children too. Let the kids get hands-on in the Universeum, a multifaceted science centre with an aquarium, rainforest and interactive exhibits.
Kids also love the Maritima Museum, housed in a fleet of ships on the river. Children will enjoy exploring the decks of the boats while learning about Sweden’s nautical history. The Klippan Precinct, a fascinating heritage centre that preserves buildings from Gothenburg’s history, is an equally immersive destination for families.
Gothenburg’s three-star accommodation options make it easy to stay in the heart of the city, where you can treat yourself to shopping and sightseeing galore as well as family days out.
