For families with young children, car hire offers a convenient way to explore Gothenburg’s attractions without walking or waiting for public transport. There are several child-friendly attractions in Gothenburg, including Liseberg Amusement Park and the science-themed Universeum, whose interactive exhibits will delight visitors of all ages.
Lakes, Beaches and Island Towns
As vibrant as Gothenburg’s city centre is, you should also make time for the countryside and coastline of western Sweden. Taking your rental car north of Gothenburg will bring you to the pretty lakeside town of Vänersborg, where you can try your hand at water-sports on Lake Vänern or simply lounge by the shore.
Alternatively, head down the coast to Askimsbadet Beach for a bracing day by the sea, or drive around the islands of the Gothenburg Archipelago to explore quaint waterfront towns and secluded coves. Some of the southern islands are car-free, but you can take your rental car onto most of the northern islands.
Whether you’re travelling as a group, a couple or a family, you’ll find car rental a convenient way of exploring the Gothenburg area. Pick up a rental car from one of the airports or a city centre outlet and explore at leisure.
