Göteborg holiday rentals
Up and coming Gothenburg is an ideal location to book a holiday home. Described by some as ‘Sweden’s coolest city’, you won’t be short of things to do in Sweden’s second biggest city! Give yourself at least a few days to appreciate the art, culture and food this colourful city has to offer. Located in southwestern Sweden, Gothenburg feeds into Kattegatt, an arm of the North Sea. It’s safe to say that Gothenburg has it all, from parks and nature reserves to waterfront walks. With a unique appeal to tourists and locals alike, Gothenburg is a great choice for a holiday for a chilled city vibe with a difference.
Widen your horizons through the sites and tastes of cutting-edge Gothenburg
In Gothenburg, you’ll find typical Nordic design, modern art and a trend setting food scene but with far smaller crowds, perfect if you prefer a far more relaxed city vibe. You’ll be able to try delicacies such as the kanelbullar (cinnamon buns) and any type of seafood imaginable in the company of some friendly Swedish people. The architecture in Gothenburg is a mix of many different styles, which adds to its unique appeal. From the Kuggen to the city opera house, this city isn’t short of architectural masterpieces. Choosing to book a holiday home in Gothenburg means you’ll never be far away from some of the best events and sites in Sweden.
The waterfront has everything from from ships, cafés, aquariums and sea-related museums and not to mention some of the best tasting fish around. Stockholm might be the capital, but many of the best ideas come from Gothenburg. There are plenty of museums in this city so you can see for yourself how this city has really grown. In the west, the districts of Vasastan, Haga and Linné are a must if you are a vintage magpie and love all things homely but still want that city experience.
There are an abundance of trams which travel through the pretty cobbled streets in the city, but Gothenburg is compact enough to explore on foot or by cycling. It is recommended that you take time to wander through the green Kungsparken (King’s Park), the quaint side lanes of Haga and in the evening to experience the narrow canals. So wherever you decide to book your holiday accommodation in Gothenburg, you’ll know that your stay will be a unique and enlightening experience.
