Welcome to Sweden's second largest city and the largest metropolis on the west coast. Gothenburg is located at the mouth of the Göta River and is partly in Bohuslän and partly in Västergötland. Why should you spend your holiday here in or around Gothenburg, you may ask. First, the west coast is one of the main reasons. With a lot of water and a lovely archipelago north of Gothenburg, there are plenty of beautiful beaches around Gothenburg after a tour of the city. At the same time, Gothenburg is a real Scandinavian metropolis. You will find almost everything here, from cultural highlights to shopping in designer stores. Many of the best Swedish chefs also come from Gothenburg and offer you culinary delights in their star restaurants. For night owls, we find the street with the most pubs in Sweden. In the Linné or Vasastan districts there are plenty of bars and discos.

Here you can comfortably combine the best of both worlds in your holiday. Peace, tranquility and nature around your holiday home on the west coast and at the same time a city holiday in Gothenburg.


If you are traveling with the family, a visit to Liseberg is a must. A visit to Gothenburg is incomplete if you do not slip through the gates to Scandinavia's largest amusement park. Whether you are three or ninety - three years old, Liseberg always offers its visitors something to experience an unforgettable day full of experiences. Liseberg is also known for its concerts. Every year, many pop and rock stars from all over the world stop here and hold their concerts on one of the stages. From mid-November, you can visit Liseberg's atmospheric Christmas market and shorten your wait for Santa with a glass of Swedish mulled wine.

If you think of the west coast, you are mostly in Bohuslän. The archipelago outside Bohuslän is known for its islets with smooth granite cliffs and a paradise for boaters, kayakers and divers. Bohuslän is also known for its "salty" delicacies: seafood directly from the sea. Once during your holiday on the west coast here in Bohuslän, you and your children should get in the car and visit "Havets hus" in Lysekil. You can look forward to an insight into the underwater world in a saltwater aquarium with about 100 different fish species from Gullmarsfjorden to the sea and much more.

Holiday in Mellbystrand - one of Sweden's most beautiful west coast beaches. This small town on the west coast not only has one of the most beautiful sandy beaches in the region. There is also a lot to offer here for all holidaymakers. During the season, restaurants and hotels offer live music outdoors. At Delfin Beach Club, the little ones can dive down the water slide or have fun in the pool. The stressed parent can relax on the outdoor terrace or order a seafood specialty at the local restaurant.
