Excursions

The Gothenburg area offers a wide range of excursions and possible activities, here are some examples:

 

 

universeum_exterior1Universeum

Universeum is Scandinavia’s largest Science Centre. In 2013, 550 000 children, young people and adults visited us on Korsvägen in the heart of Gothenburg, Sweden.

Our task is to have a positive effect on children’s attitudes to science, technology and maths. We want to make children and young people interested in these subjects and fire up their sense of curiosity, through activities and experiences that create understanding and faith in the future. Our hope is that we can awaken an interest that leads on to studies and careers in these fields. Universeum also welcomes the wider public and seeks to be a first choice destination where visitors can learn something new in a fun way, or just have a great time. Everything at Universeum is based in real science and focuses on interactivity as far as possible. Our remit is also to provide educational activities for students and teachers.

PaddanPaddan boat tours

The best way to take in Gothenburg is from the water! The guided Paddan boat tour takes you through the city moats and canals and out to the harbour. On the way it passes under many low bridges including the famous “Osthyveln” (“the cheese slicer”) bridge. Our classic city tour shows you and tells the story of all of Gothenburg’s most important sights, including the opera house, the shipyards, parks and gardens, fish- and food markets and historic buildings. The tour ends where it began, at Kungsportsplatsen in the city centre.

All aboard! Let Paddan show you Gothenburg!
