Over Easter 2006 I spent a long weekend in Goteborg. With a population of 490.000 it is the second largest city in Sweden and one of the most important port towns in Scandinavia. Goteborg offers many interesting sights, a lively city centre, green parks and a picturesque coastline.
As on most of my previous trips to Scandinavia I stayed in a private Bed & Breakfast, which gave interesting insights into the local life. A visit to the football match of IFK Goteborg vs. Helsingborg at the old Gamla Ullevi stadium was another amazing experience on this trip.
Only a few cities in Scandinavia have a tram network; Goteborg is one of them. Although most sights are within walking distance to the city centre, the trams are great for excursions to the outer areas of the city like Roda Sten near the Alvsborgs bridge.
