Art Gallery
“The turquoise bridge is one of Gothenburg's most popular landmarks on Instagram. Under it on the land side is an art gallery called “Röda Sten Konsthall”, named after a big rock painted red on the shore. Röda Sten art center is situated in the old boiler house in the harbor inlet. It's an alternative arena for contemporary art in all its forms. The art center almost always has exhibitions worth a visit and often a solid program with workshops and more. The restaurant serves lunch on weekdays, featuring three new dishes daily and one of the options is always vegetarian or vegan. On Sundays, don't miss the popular Meat Free Sunday brunch. Booking is recommended, and double check opening hours on the website. Various club nights are hosted here on some Fridays and Saturdays, take a look at their social media. The other side is an island called Hisingen, where I grew up but it’s so big, 199 sq. km with 130 000 people on it, that you forget it’s actually an island sometimes.”
