Göteborg (Gothenburg) Travel Guide


For a view of the city from the water and expert commentary on its sights and history in English and German, take one of the Paddan sightseeing boats. Paddan is Swedish for "toad," an apt commentary on the vessels' squat appearance. The boats pass under 20 bridges and take in both the canals and part of the Göta River.

A 90-minute bus tour and a two-hour combination boat-and-bus tour of the chief points of interest leave from outside the main tourist office at Kungsportsplatsen every day from mid-May through August and on Saturday in April, September, and October. Call the tourist office for schedules.
