A nice quiet space in the middle of town

This is very near our home so I pass it frequently when living in Sweden. It's very beautiful to look at as it's 'old world' style. The cobblestones can be a bit difficult to... read more

This is very near our home so I pass it frequently when living in Sweden. It's very beautiful to look at as it's 'old world' style. The cobblestones can be a bit difficult to walk on ;-) but ...that's part of its charm. Several shops and a cafe are here as well as an attached park that is dog-friendly (so... More

We were walking around to explore a few paces of interest. The building is unique but I must be honest to say it wouldn't really catch my attention too much if I were to walk pass it .

This little area is located just off one of the main streets in Gothenburg. It's quite pretty and has some interesting buildings from the outside. Ultimately, though, it feels like this area is wasting its potential. It was completely dead and is just a tourist trap. I didn't get anything to eat or drink based on the bad reviews here,... More

This is one of Gothenburg's hidden spots, close to Gustav Adolfs torg (Gustav Adolfs Square). Don't go out of your way to find Kronhusbodarna as it consists only of a small open place with a silversmith, chocolate shop and coffee shop. Nothing to write home about.

I was at Gustaf Adolfs Torg and asked a couple of tourist info folks for directions to the Emigrant Museum. As I was about a block from the street before the Emigrant museum, I spied the old City Hall, which at first I mistook for an old church. It is an interesting building hidden behind higher buildings on every side.... More

Because we were there on a Sunday, none of the shops were open except the chocolate shop. We ended up picking up perfect souvenirs to take home, pretty little bags of different licorice flavoured candies. There’s lots of free samples to try out (the fudge was amazing), and the proprietor was engaging and helpful. A unique and lovely shop worth... More

This is a pleasant little cobbled area which includes Gothenburg's oldest building but I was expecting a little more than was actually there. The chocolate shop is worth popping into as it has free samples but is a little expensive.

I was really looking forwards to visiting here as from the guide book description in sounded like a hive of culture and art. I admit I was a little disappointed...although out of season it was extremely quiet with the cafe empty and nobody browsing the shops (neither of which seemed that interesting). The old building itself is impressive so I... More

Great little area to visit and see the old City Hall. Some food places for great snacks right there. I went there for the history and to take pictures.
