Visiting: Göteborg

I'm back from my blog break and next stop on our Scandinavian Odyssey is Göteborg! We hit a bit of a wall here as it was middle of our holiday but even so Göteborg did not disappoint. We took a stroll down by the water to see the famous GöteborgsOperan and we were even brave enough to take a trip on the Wheel! The Göteborgs Konstmuseum is one of the best art museums we visited and we spent a long rainy afternoon looking around the Design and Swedish/Nordic painting exhibits (and the museum shop). This Hammershøi book is on my Amazon wishlist as a result!
Liseberg Amusement Park is one of the main attractions in the city and we stayed at Hotell Liseberg Heden (most of Göteborg was booked out due to our visit coinciding with the World Transplant Games). We also got free entry into the Park so spent the evening wondering at all the scary rides!
Our next destination involved getting a flight from Göteborg City Airport using this airline. We had a bit of a wait at Nils Ericson Terminal for our Airport Bus - if only every bus station could be like this one!

Looks so interesting. I'd like to visit some day. Do you have any pics of shopping?

Hi Lisa. Well, I would fully recommend a visit! Only shopped in the tourist shops here though there is a huge shoppig centre right in the centre - stay tuned as I did get to do some shopping at our final destination - Stockholm!
