Gothenburg

Vacationers after the perfect mix of cultural and scenic sights will love Gothenburg.

It lies approximately 8 miles northeast of Branno and about 250 miles southwest of Stockholm, the national capital.

Ensure the whole family has a great time by stopping by a few of the child-friendly activities of the area. Everyone is sure to have a great time at Liseberg Amusement Park, Vattenpalatset and the Hagabion.

Take photos, admire the educational displays and learn all about different ecosystems at the Barnens Zoo. If you're short on time, grab a map so you don't miss any of the zoo highlights.

Sit back with a drink, spin the roulette wheel or simply take in the high-stakes atmosphere at the Casino Cosmopol Gothenburg.

You'll be inspired by the gorgeous collection of native and exotic plants on display at the Botanic Gardens and the Garden Society of Gothenburg.

When the weather is fine, pack some lunch and find a shady corner at one of the area's scenic urban parks, such as Castle Forest or Palm House. Baltespannarparken and Positivparken are two more nice places to while away a lazy afternoon with a good book.

Landvettersjon Lake and Delsjon are popular for scenic picnics and bird-watching.

Nature-loving visitors often visit Keillers Park and Stora Amundon for a bit of respite.

See the world in a new light with a trip to one of the area's educational cultural institutions. The Volvo Museum and the Aeroseum offer a range of displays and collections that are bound to keep you captivated. Also worth considering are the Rohsska Museum for Design, Fashion and Decorative Arts and the Gothenburg Radio Museum.

Those intrigued by seafaring traditions should include a trip to the Maritima Museum and the Maritime Museum and Aquarium.

Take the youngsters to see many scientific artifacts, models and displays at the Universeum, the most visited science institution around.

The natural world holds more treasures than we could ever hope to see in one lifetime. Luckily, institutions such as the Gothenburg Natural History Museum and the Museum of World Culture do us a favor by presenting them all in a single building. The Lodose Museum also boasts a remarkable collection of specimens.

A haven for art aficionados, this area is home to various gallery spaces in which amateurs and professionals regularly exhibit their work. Immerse yourself in the hip atmosphere at the Gothenburg Museum of Art and the Hasselblad Center. If you have time afterwards, the Nordic Watercolour Museum and the Galleri Mors Mossa are also well worth a look.

Even if you're not a history buff, you'll surely discover something that piques your interest at the Gothenburg City Museum. In addition to that, you might like to study the displays at the Emigranternas Hus or the City Museum of Molndal.

To learn more about the area's rich and fascinating past, plan to visit at least one of its many historic structures and monuments. Start your history tour at the Chalmers University of Technology and the Poseidon Statue. When it comes to bygone times, there's always more to discover. The Kronhuset and Gothenburg Town Hall are two more insightful places to check out.

A stop at Bohus Fortress and Carlstens Fastning is a captivating way to learn something about the region's military history. Skansen Lion and Alvsborg Fortress are two more places that have played a vital role in protecting Gothenburg from enemy attacks.

There is a profound history stored within the walls of the area's castles. You don't need to be a jousting knight to be excited by Gunnebo House and Gardens.

The region's spiritual side is on display at Marstrand Church and Masthugget Church. You might also like to check for guided tours around Oscar Fredrik Church and Haga Church.

Before you pack up your bags and head off home, make sure you see a few of Gothenburg's lesser-known attractions. A couple of great places to start off with are Avenyn and the Gothenburg City Library. If you have more time to spare, also check out the Gothenburg Belt Factory and the Volvo Cars Torslanda Factory.
