What you'll do

Highly recommended for 1st timers in Gothenburg, enabling you to decide what to do in the next days with knowledge!

In 2 hours I will show you the oldest city parts and buildings and their fascinating history as well as the best viewpoints on the city heights. I will point out the best restaurants, bars and shopping streets and other hidden gems during the tour around the old city center. In total we will stop by 17 sightings.

At the end of the tour I will show you my list of recommended restaurants and bars around town.

Born and raised, and still living in Gothenburg I've always been interested in our city's rich and dramatic history! From war and fires to today's cozy streets with cafés and restaurants, I really feel that there is so much to tell about Gothenburg!

I know how difficult it can be to find the right events when visiting a new city. As a frequent user of Airbnb myself when travelling i decided to set up my own tour of the city since i have such a indepth knowledge of it all!

Where you'll be

We will start at the city center at Gustav Adolfs Torg by the statue and walk to Kronhusgårdarna and some historical buildings,on to Magasinsgatan and Kungsgatan with restaurants/shopping. From there we reach Kungshöjd with its viewpoints within the mout/old fortification. We also visit Fiskekyrkan and pass by some cool bars, Saluhallen, Kungsportsplatsen, shopping street and the old Synagogue. Pretty much the entire historical city center.
