When in Göteborg

Can't believe it has already been a month since we visited this beautiful city. So it's about time that I'm sharing some photos. Of course I took too many photos so I had a hard time deciding which ones I should pick. Göteborg is an amazing city, we were totally blown away by it's beauty and really wished that we had more time to explore this fascinating city. 

The city has some height differences (similar to for example Lissabon) which makes that there are many viewpoints from which you have a great outlook over the city. The architecture in the city is really breathtaking, it has many stone buildings, but also wooden ones and on one corner it seems that your find yourself in the middle of New York, whereas you turn around the next corner it all of the sudden resembles London. It's truly a one of a kind city!

We parked our car close to an area called Haga; a district known for its 19th century atmosphere and picturesque wooden houses. It's a nice shopping area filled with little shops and cafés. Afterwards we walked to the large Slottskogen - the largest park in Gothenburg with an open zoo - and on our way we had a drink at Jerntorgerts Brygghus a nice beer place with, obviously, a wide range of beers but also non-alcoholic drinks. 

After walking around the city (really everything is at walking distance) we went to the main centre. The city centre was just as beautiful as the rest of the city. There are many Scandinavian concept stores, multibrand stores, antique shops, beautiful brick storefronts, cobblestoned streets, canals through the city, industrial buildings, etc., etc. 

Of course we had to eat as well and we found this place called Kafé Magasinet at the Tredje Långgatan. It is a nice cosy yet industrial lunch place where we ordered some sandwiches, coffee and drinks. The location is super cure; in a small courtyard behind the main street. The street has many nice places where you can eat lunch or dinner, so definitely a must visit!

Below you can find two more photos showing off the beauty of this Swedish metropolis!
