10 Things to Do in Gothenburg with Kids

10 Things to Do in Gothenburg with Kids, Gothenburg, Sweden (B)

Sweden’s second city, Gothenburg, came as a pleasant surprise when we visited during the summer. The city feels more relaxed and a bit edgier than Stockholm but it has the same child-friendly vibe you find throughout Sweden with an extra sprinkling of large-scale attractions. In short, it’s a great city to visit with children without being too overwhelming. It is easy to get around on buses and trams and packed full of museums and sights geared towards children. Here’s my pick of 10 of things to do in Gothenburg with kids.

Scandinavia’s largest theme park, Liseberg, has everything from thrilling rollercoasters and carousels to a concert hall and a huge wheel you can see from afar. Open since 1923, one of its main attractions is a wooden rollercoaster – the biggest in the world. Liseberg has special events at Halloween and its Christmas markets open in November (I can imagine it is similar to Tivoli Gardens in winter). We had wonderful views from our hotel (Gothia Tower) but unfortunately it was closed the day we were there (Monday). Check the website for opening times and more information. ......
