We’ll explore Gothenburg on foot, and experience a city in flux. Dynamic or a giant mess, depending on your attitude. But Gothenburg is also a city with lots of things worth seeing. It has a fascinating history that can be interesting to hear about. Gothenburg was originally a fortress, and the moat around the city centre is a reminder of that. I’d love to share my knowledge of Gothenburg’s history with you. Towards the end of the walk we’ll fortify ourselves with a cup of coffee somewhere. If we go to a café we each pay for our own drinks. The whole tour takes around three hours but can of course be shortened to your requirements.
