Make sure you consider our Gothenburg car hire services on your next trip to Sweden’s second largest city. Founded at the start of the 17ht century it was once the country’s ship building center but in the present day it is a city focused on technology and education and has garnered a reputation of being a very friendly place.
The city is served by two airports, Landvetter Airport and Gothenburg City Airport and despite what the names might imply the main airport is Landvetter Airport even though it is located farther away than Gothenburg City Airport. Landing at any of these airports shouldn’t be a problem since both of them are connected to the city via a bus service but your best choice by far is to employ our Gothenburg car rental services and have a car of your choice ready for you as soon as you land.
Once in the city there are a series of historical buildings that you should visit, including two fortifications or keeps: Skansen Kronan or Crown Keep and Skansen Lejonet or Lion Keep. The first one is situated on a hilltop and was built in the 17th century then to serve as a prison in the 19th century and now as a military museum. The second keep is unfortunately located in the middle of an industrial area but if you’re lucky you can get into one of the guided tours which take place on the first and third Sunday of each month.
The Kronhuset or Crown House is yet another historical building that you may want to see. Built in the middle of the 17th century it worked briefly as the headquarters of the Swedish Parliament but it now houses Gothenburg Musik and most of the surrounding buildings are now cafes and crafts workshops.
When you get tired of visiting the various historical buildings and the many museums that the city has to offer you can take some time to relax in one of the city’s parks and gardens such as Slottsskogen – this is a large English garden and a very popular spot with both locals and tourists for relaxing and picnics. The park is so large that it features a museum of natural history, an observatory, a mini golf course and even a children’s zoo.
These are of course only few of the spots that you could visit while on your trip but you can see these and many more if you chose to employ our Gothenburg car hire services.
