SHORE EXCURSION GOTHENBURG: itinerary
Our Gothenburg shore excursion begins at the main street, Avenyn. Previously known by the longer, more tongue-twisting name of Kungsportsavenyn, this avenue stretches 1000 metres from a moat at the edge of the oldest part of Gothenburg, and ends at Götaplatsen square, where the Gothenburg Museum of Art is situated.
Also along this route are the City Theatre, the Concert Hall and Stora Teatern; a historic theatre inaugurated in 1859.
The next stop of the tour is the large park and horticultural garden of Trädgårdsföreningen. Amongst the grounds is the largest rose garden in Europe with over 1,900 different species of flower.
We’ll continue through the waterways of the city. First through Rosenlund, a vibrant spot full of bars, shops and restaurants, and then passing to the marina Lilla Bommen.
We’ll see Älvsborg Fortress, which protected medieval Sweden’s access to the North Sea and Atlantic Ocean. The castle we see today was built in the 17th century after the old fortress was dismantled and relocated.
With lots to see on this cruise tour, we’ll also stop at Gothenburg Cathedral and the public squares of Götaplatsen and King Gustav Adolf. We’ll then conclude the Gothenburg shore excursion and return to port for boarding.
