Gothenburg, Sweden

Gothenburg ©
Situated on Sweden's western coastline, Gothenburg attracts visitors with cultural festivals, a lively music scene, and a blend of classical and modern architecture.
Start off your visit on the 1st (Mon): take in nature's colorful creations at Horticultural Gardens (Tradgardsforeningen). Here are some ideas for day two: have fun and explore at Universeum and then find something for the whole family at Liseberg amusement park.

Plan my Gothenburg trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Istanbul, Turkey to Gothenburg is an approximately 6.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of shuttle and flight; or drive. Traveling from Istanbul to Gothenburg, you'll gain 2 hours due to the time zone difference. Plan for slightly colder temperatures traveling from Istanbul in June, with highs in Gothenburg at 21°C and lows at 11°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Stockholm.
