Peters tips for when you are in Gothenburg
A city centre garden that’s just as relaxing to stroll around in winter as it is in summer. Continue the walk from Trädgårdsföreningen along the moat through Kungsparken all the way to Järntorget.
Saluhallen is a Gothenburg’s market hall – a temple dedicated to good food with an international touch. Great just to wander around and look, but it tastes even better!
Kronhuset was built in the 1600s as a storage facility for military equipment. Today it is part of a historic town square where you can have coffee and visit craft workshops.
- Take the free ferry from Stenpiren (the ferry with the green flag) over to Lindholmen. Gothenburg’s answer to Silicon Valley and home to some distinctive contemporary architecture.You can also purchase a regular ticket on the other ferries that work the river (SEK 35 adult). The ticket is valid for 90 minutes, so you can take a trip around the entire harbour area and see Gothenburg from the water.

Peter was very accommodating as we changed the time of our meeting so we could be at church in the morning. It was an interesting overview of different elements of Gothenburg's history - moving the city many times throughout its past, details on the king's statue, the (Fake) Well Park, some of the city's industrial and engineering history, its military past, the walk down Kungsgatan and so on.

I met Peter with my father and 6 year old son. The walk was very interactive, interesting and informative. Peter is very patient, kind and fun. He had lots of anecdotes to share with us. We end our trip with a traditional Swedish fika. I recommend the walk for all ages groups :). Tripti

I had a great experience learning about Gothenburg's history with Peter. He is very knowledgeable, friendly, and even shared some photographs of what the city looked like years ago. There was plenty of picture opportunities along the tour as well. I would highly recommend his tour. Alex
