Gothenburg is the second largest city of Sweden and the fifth-largest of the Nordic countries.

It is situated on the west coast of Sweden and was founded as a heavily fortified, primarily Dutch, trading colony in 1621.

The city is encircled by rocky shoreline, deep forests, tranquil lakes and the surging sea to the west. No other Swedish city gives such easy access to nature. Right on the doorstep are wide open spaces and magical islands.

Due to Gothenburg’s advantageous location in the center of Scandinavia, trade and shipping have always played a major role in the cities economic history. Gothenburg port has come to be the largest harbor in Scandinavia.

Gothenburg is an open and accessible city. It offers almost everything you would expect of a cosmopolitan city – within walking distance. All you need is right in the city and you can get everywhere on foot – from the Central Station to your hotel, to the arenas, shopping, restaurants and nightlife.
