Gothenburg has changed in 400 years. Stroll through the regions of Haga, Lindholmen and the archipelago.
The oldest district in Gothenburg is called Haga, the 400th anniversary has been postponed until 2023 due to the spread of the epidemic, and it is connected to ancient skyscrapers through squares, cafes and bars that today attract many visitors. From Haga is a short walk to Stenpiren Ferry Port, passing by the White Fish Hall, which locals call the “Fish Church”.
Rapid changes in Gothenburg
The electric ferry bound for Gothenburg’s newest area, Lindholmen on the island of Hesse, has been an uninhabited industrial area ten or fifteen years ago. Today, more than 25,000 people from all over the world work, study, research, and live in the Science Park. Here, too, work is underway on the development of autonomous electric buses. This new electric bus will take you to Freihamn Harbor, which has been transformed into a new entertainment district for the city’s anniversary. The next day, visitors to Fotö Island in the Gothenburg archipelago will experience a “lobster safari”: in a traditional fishing boat, they will spend a few hours fishing lobsters with a basket net over the railing.
