Trip Report gothenburg (goteborg), stockholm, helsingor, copenhagen

Jump to last reply

This is an attempt to provide a very brief trip report. Disclaimer: we are not foodies per se, we had a preschooler with us, and we had a limited budget. We went to Sweden to pick up a Volvo through the European Delivery/Overseas Delivery program. We had to fly into Gothenburg (Swedish spelling: Goteborg). Volvo put us up in a nice hotel Radisson Blu in the center of Gothenburg. The hotel was nice, a bit outdated. We were provided with a voucher for their outstanding breakfast buffet and it was the highlight of the hotel. The hotel is very similar to an Embassy Suites in the US. A word of warning: we went in mid-August and by then it was pretty rainy on the West coast of Sweden. The locals told us that it was pretty typical of that time of the year. I live in Seattle, where August is the sunniest and best month, but it is more of an exception elsewhere.

The next day, we picked up our volvo and drove to Orebro, where we spent the night. We walked into the city at night on a Wednesday night and it was pretty dead. they have a castle in Orebro that dates back to 16th century. It looks more impressive in pictures, including my pictures, than it looked to me in person. There are offices and apartments in the castle, so it is not a museum or a place to tour. We picked Orebro to stay overnight simply because it was 2.5 hours away from Gothenburg on the way to Stockholm and we didn't want to drive 5 hours to Stockholm while still jetlagged.
