About Gothenburg

Gothenburg is located at the mouth of River Göta älv and hence got the name Gothenburg. Its location helped Gothenburg to develop into a significant trade and shipping city in the Nordic countries. The sea, trade and industrial history of the city is evident in the cultural life of Gothenburg.

Gothenburg is scattered with a number of historic and cultural establishments. Gothenburg Museum of Art, Liseberg (largest amusement park in Scandinavia), Röhss Museum (sea and natural history museum) and Gothenburg Opera are just a few of the those.

Kungsportsavenyn, commonly known as Avenyn, "The Avenue", is the main boulevard with a total length of 1 kilometre; it stretches from the older part of Gothenburg to the Götaplatsen square, where the Gothenburg Museum of Art and several other cultural institutions are located.

While in Gothenburg, you can also visit the Southern Gothenburg Archipelago consisting of Älvsborg Fortress, Vinga and Styrsö islands. As a seafront destination, Gothenburg is famous for its fish dishes and world class eateries sporting Michelin stars along with various other affordable options.

    Serves a purpose
    • Couldn't sleep, engines shaking ship, sitting system in restaurant stupid. Queued out door round corner down hall like in school. Keep you waiting 45 mins to get down stairs to car then when you get there everyone going mad because they're waiting for you to move but the queue system caused it all. Good for cutting out some miles but not for 405 euro. Robbery.

    not a normal ferry
    • I travel on quite a few ferries from UK to Europe. This journey was a bit special. From Sweden to Germany, saves on driving and thought we'd see a bit of the coast. The biggest surprise was the ferry. Everything was a tad better than normal ferries. The accommodation was excellent, superb cabin, great facilities. The staff were so helpful and friendly. The food was the best I've had on any ferry. So it was like an upgraded ferry journey, but the big surprise was the price. Total value for money. Why can't all ferries be like this

    Terrace suite.. 0 additional value
    • The journey was OK, but we booked a terrace suite (and paid extra) to find out the terrace was just a terrace on the 'bar' deck, with the bar in front of you and lots of noise and loud people. We would presume a terrace suite would be with view of the sea. Besides this, our cabin was lovely, spacious and very tidy (but noisy sounds from the frames on the wall). The buffet on board could be a bit better.

    Excellent service
    • A great ship with friendly staff. Fast embarkation and free live music on the open deck bar gave a great atmosphere. Comfortable cabin with TV and free wifi in public areas.
