A city that is almost 400 years old – but that is only half the truth. The General Göteborg Tour will guide you through the lively city centre, where you will learn more about the founding history, consequences of building with wood and get mind blown when getting to know the secret of Haga – at least we hope so!
This tour will give you the main idea about the classical part of Gothenburg, garnished with some local quirks. Best case, after the tour you will win trivia games about the city. Worst case, you had a nice afternoon walk and got some nice pictures of the city. Win-win, if you ask us!
This is a Free Walking Tour. Simply book a spot, join the tour and if you liked it, show your gratitude to the tour guide by tipping them. You decide how much it was worth!
Tour Duration: 2:00 – 2:30 hours (including break)
Walking Distance: 4 km
Please bring comfortable shoes, rain and windproof clothing (it is Sweden after all), a water bottle (you can refill it on the way) and best case: many questions! We love those!
The Meeting Point is located at Gustav Adolfs Torg, right next to the statue of Gustav II Adolf. You can reach it simply by taking any public transport to Brunnsparken.
Your Tour Guide will be waiting for you with a Göteborg Walking Tours sign!
The tour ends at Götaplatsen, around 1km walk away from the starting point!
