History Rich

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.

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

The original city hall is surrounded by small boutiques, such as a silversmith, potter, and several clothing designers. Free to wander around the the wares are pricey. there is a nice little cafe where you can sit outside and enjoy a coffee and a small bite to eat.

You can feel the history here. Very beautiful buildings just a step out of the buzzling centre. On a summer Saturday most of the shops were closed, cafeteria was open. If you happen to be nearby, visit here.

The houses are the oldest ones in the city. There are little shops, and a restaurant too, but go elsewhere to eat.

Built in 1642 these buildings transported you back in time to when Göteborg was a new city. We had a tremendous lunch at the incredibly cute Cafe Kronhuset which had delicious homemade lasagne, great baked goods and as if the setting wasn't quaint enough there was a piano player playing beautiful music throughout our lunch. Afterward we couldn't help but... More

We ate here since, having wandered around the small selection of craft shops around the Kronhuset, it seemed like the obvious place to eat. I had a cheese baguette (35nok), my wife had a baked potato + tuna (79nok). Sandwich filling was pretty stingy. We went in summer time, so they had a large outdoor area set up under cover.... More

Just behind the very important East Indian Museum (Göteborgs city Museum) is some of the oldest buildings in town. This is the coffee shop in the complex. Romantic, but still just a simple coffee shop. Very close to that is a specialist store selling chocolate. Recommended! Just across the street is the Himalayan restaurant. If you like Indian food with... More

The Kronhus and the Kronhusbodarna are supposed to be the oldest houses in Göteborg. Unfortunately, you cannot visit everything there because some musicians live in it.

I suppose it is a bit of a tourist trap, but I always enjoy taking visitors to see the old buildings & cobblestone courtyard. The glass blowers and the old-fashioned candy shop are sure to please! Don't make the mistake of staying here for a bite to eat, however. I was embarrassed by the rude treatment I & my friend... More
