Haga quarters and Church, Göteborg: 16 reviews and 15 photos

Okay, if there only is one place you'll take your girlfriend/boyfriend for a romantic walk, Haga is the place!
The Haga quarter is a small area, but you won't need anything more. The streets are small and narrow, and full of beautiful small shops, cafés and antiques.
Leaving the bigger streets, with the traffic, the sounds and the stress behind you, is like going into a new town. There is a calmness in Haga which you won't find anywhere else in the central parts of the city.

When I was younger I often came here with my friends on Sunday mornings to have a chatt and eat a huge cinnamon bun. But then I forgot about it, and it was not until a few summers ago that a friend made sure that I re-discovered these fantastic streets.

My favourite café is "Jakobs café", located in the middle of the central street. Very cosy, quite nice prices, and a nice atmosphere which means you can sit down and talk without having to scream.

During the summer there are also seats outside, which makes it a perfect place to just sit down and look at all the people who pass by.

Haga quarters is the Old town of Gothenburg, once considered as a bad area. But during the last 25 years the city has rebuilt all the old houses, renovated them, and forbid all traffic through the streets.

From Haga it's just around the corner to Haga church, a really huge one. On the other side of the quarter you'll find Järntorget and the ferries to Denmark and Germany.

Address: Haga Nygata
Directions: In the western part of the city center. Easiest is to take a tram to "Haga" or to "Jarntorget" and from there walk (just 50-100 meters).
