The Guardian lyfter fram Göteborg som ett intressant resmål med en späckad artikel med tips på vilka restauranger, barer och annat i staden som är väl värt att upptäcka. Vi i GeekWalk håller med.
What used to be passed over as a nondescript port city is now one of Europe’s most sought-after weekend destinations: last year, Gothenburg’s visitor numbers topped four million for the first time. As a result, Sweden’s second-largest city is enjoying a much-needed revival: industrial buildings are being turned into cool hangouts, rundown areas are starting to thrive and the city has made it to number 12 on Forbes’ list of innovative world cities (although still behind Stockholm and Malmö). Think “Berlin cool” but with the friendliness of a small town with pretty cobbled streets. Jump on a bike or tram to explore boroughs, including hip Linnéstaden, bohemian Majorna and former red-light district Rosenlund (it’s Gothenburg’s take on New York’s Meatpacking District – only here it is known as the fish-packing district, thanks to its fish market). And, given the city’s coastal position and beautiful archipelago, spring and early summer are perfect times to visit.
