About this holiday
Situated off the country’s beautiful west coast along the River Göta älv, Gothenburg offers a range of attractions and sites regardless of the time of year. In December as Christmas approaches, why not join us for a fun Scandinavian short break.
Our tour kicks off as we meet our guide for a walking tour of the city. Leaving from Gustav Adolfs Square we take in the political centre of Gothenburg and the statue of its founding father before exploring the Lilla Bommen harbour with ‘the Lipstick’ and the Barken Viking ship. We also make stops at the cathedral, Saluhallen; the international indoor food market and The Avenue; a parade street lined with boutiques and heads all the way up to the cultural centre. We finish at a lovely local café for a traditional ‘fika’. Look out for the saffron buns, traditional at this time of year as well as the delicious cinnamon rolls.
Liseberg Amusement Park
Our hotel is within walking distance of Liseberg and our entrance is included with our City Card. A popular attraction with tourists and with locals alike here we can soak up the Christmas atmosphere with wafts of toffee apples, mulled wine, cinnamon and hot chocolate strolling around the Christmas market. Adorned with decorations and twinkling lights, we can shop for decorations, sweet treats and maybe the odd gift. You may like to take the escalator up to Tornet for a wide selection of designer goods and handicrafts as well as unique handmade items.
