Drinks & Nightlife
If you are searching for the perfect spot to get a picture of the Gothenburg skyline, this is the spot! In the top floors of one of Gothenburgs greatest hotels there lies a restaurant/sky bar with an amazing view. Not only is this great spot located no more than five minutes away from our apartment, but the view is also accompanied with some great food and drinks! For Viktoria and I a drink at this sky bar is a perfect way to begin a romantic night during those dark autumn months!

This street (together with Tredje Långgatan) makes up one of the best streets to get a drink at in Gothenburg! With more than 20 bars stretching its legs away from Järntorget! It is also easy to get to from our apartment! Just a single tram-ride (about 20 minutes) away! Our personal favourite bar on this street is Kaffemagasinet, a small bar with an amazing outdoor seating area! It's located between buildings, with great heating meaning you can sit out there till dawn even during early autumn!

This night club is one of our favourites! There are great drinks, a lot of nice/interesting people and a lot of great music! Like literally, you can't help but dance to every song (they play a lot of nostalgia-filled music like Abba, haha)!

This bar is not a normal bar.. It's actually a secret bar! To create great atmosphere, and a sensation of exclusivity, this bar has decided to not do any marketing! Instead the location of this bar spreads through word of mouth! The idea is simple! You walk to the given address (Kungstorget 14, 411 10) and find the door with a doorbell with the face of a small bulldog on it! You then ring the bell, and they'll let you in if there's room!

Sightseeing
This spot is well known in Gothenburg to boast one of the greatest views! Viktor and I love to have a small picnic and watch the sunset during spring/summer times! It's easy to get to by tram/bus, and also has a few parking spots! The view is great, overlooking Hisingen Island and the harbour!

This area is in it self known as a beautiful spot overlooking the Gothenburg Skärgård! But it also serves as one of the main areas of transportation to the beautiful Islands outside the city! To get here from the central parts of Gothenburg takes about 20 minutes. And from here you can take the ferry out to some gorgeous islands such as Vrångö, Fårö or Styrsö (etc)! These islands are great, especially during the spring/summer, when you can jump into the water!

Parks & Nature
If you want to spend some time in the nature even though you live in the middle of the city, this is a must! The park is easily the biggest in Gothenburg, and it contains so much more than just woods and fields of grass! There is Slottskogen Djurpark (small zoo), ultimate frisbee, courts for Volleyball, restaurants/bars and so much more! This is another spot that Viktoria and I love to spend time at during the summer-evenings! Especially with friends, some music and a drink or two!

Another beautiful spot in Gothenburg is Trädgårdsföreningen! This place is just beautiful, plain and simple! It has a lot of flower arrangements, and is perfect for an evening/morning walk! You can also visit Palmhuset, which is a giant greenhouse with different sections representing different types of greenery, such as a Middeteranian section, a tropical section and a water section.

Entertainment & Activities
This has to be one of Gothenburgs main attractions! Located only five minutes from our apartment, this is a must see if you're visiting our city! The park has everything you're expecting in an amusement park, thrill rides, games, food, drinks, etc. But it's also really beautiful, like, really really beautiful! It has been voted one of the most beautiful theme parks in Europe on several occasions! And is not only open during the summer, but also has special celebrations for Christmas and Halloween! Viktor and I really love this place! It's of course great during summer, but the park during Christmas time is almost out of this world! They also have a lot of artist/performances during summer!

If you enjoy movies, this cinema is our favourite! It's located five minutes from our apartment and always plays the biggest blockbusters! We also have a sneaky little trick during those evenings we want to spend in our apartment! Just walk to the cinema, buy two big buckets of cinema popcorn and walk back to the apartment! Just the best life hack!

Food Scene
One of our favourite restaurants in the city is Taverna Averna! The food is great, with a lot of inspiration form Italy and France! But what makes this a must eat place for Viktoria and I is the cozy atmosphere and great decoration (as well as great service)! It's also located on Tredje Långgatan, which is one of Gothenburgs main bar streets!

I (Viktor) am a sucker for sushi! And this restaurant has some of my favourite sushi I have ever eaten! If you're looking for a quick lunch/small dinner this is just perfect! It's located just five minutes to the apartment, which means you can get take away and eat more comfortably or you can sit by the canal and glaze in the summer heat (if its sunny, that is!). I recommend their special "lax på rulllar", which basically is california rolls with salmon on top! Yummy haha!

If you like McDonalds, but want something a bit more healthy and ecological, this is a great option! Swedens answer to fast food is Max Hamburgare! It's really good, especially after a night out!

One of the largest and most popular cafés in Gothenburg. It boasts a great outdoor seating area, which is great during summer times. Viktoria and I personally feel more comfortable in smaller cafés, but this one is special enoug for us to comeback to once in a while!

This is a neat little food are in a great part of Gothenburg. The general area is known for a little bit of everything. There are restaurants, cafés, small shops and much more.

Our favourite is the one called "Strömmingsluckan", which serve different types of foods containing fish (not all of them contain herring!).
