It´s always a pleasure coming to Gothenburg, and I have over the years gotten a lot of favorite places to stop by when I´m in town. So let me share some of them with you, in case you are in need of some Gothenburg tips.
Let´s start with the interior shop Rum21. This is a really beautiful and inspiring shop located at Kyrkogatan 20-22. Here you will find a great selection of Scandinavian design and a taste of what they have to offer on their webshop.
Vallgatan 12 (photo below) is also a must. Here you´ll find interior, food, art, fashion and flowers. I absolutely love this place and I can recommend combining the visit with both some shopping and a lunch.
Here is the wonderful Vallgatan 12´s flowershop:
Artilleriet (picture above) in Magasingatan 19 is always an adventure, and I always find something new and unique for my home here. While you are here, don´t forget to visit their other store The Kitchen as well. As you can see from the picture below, they have a lot of nice stuff for the kitchen too. This shop is so beautiful, that it´s worth visiting just to get inspired.
If you are going to Gothenburg before the 29th of October, I also recommend you to stop by the unique exhibition Artilleriet Studio.
In the same neighbourhood as Artilleriet, you will find a lot of other nice places to visit. Floramor & Krukatös is a wonderful flowershop that is absolutely worth a visit, and da Matteo is always a great idea for a good coffee or something to eat.
Grandpa is also in this same area, and have both interior and fashion for men and women. They have a lot of nice books too.
My favorite café in Gothenburg is Kafé Magasinet. A café and bar with a relaxed atmosphere in the Långgatorna neighbourhood, not far from Haga ( it´s a lot of nice restaurants in this neighbourhood as well )
Another favorite and a must visit when in Gothenburg is The Garden Society of Gothenburg. This place is stunning and a perfect place to relax and enjoy green surroundings.
Gothenburg has a lot of nice hotels, but the last couple of times I´ve stayed at the Scandic Rubinen. I really like their new chic rooms, and both the Roof top bar, and the Ruby restaurant & bar are worth a visit either whether you´re a guest at the hotel or not.
The fabulous Ruby restaurant & bar:
I hope this has given you a few ideas for your next visit to Gothenburg. Maybe you have some favorites you want to share with me?
