Travel to Göteborg

Göteborg is located on the Swedish West Coast about 300km north of Copenhagen, 300km south of Oslo and 450km south-west of Stockholm.

Göteborg is reached most easily by air via Landvetter Airport (GOT), which has direct connections to many destinations in central and western Europe and one-stop connection to southern Europe. Transfer to the city takes 20min by bus or by taxi.

Göteborg has a dense network of public transport consisting of trams, buses and boats/ferries. Unfortunately, the ticketing system is rather complicated and not directly tourist-friendly. The most appropriate options may be some sort of tourist card or an SMS ticket valid for 90min within the city for persons with a Swedish mobile subscription.

The weather condition in Göteborg/Gothenburg in the beginning of June can vary substantially. Their often is a warm period with up to 30C at this time but there may be days where the temperature hardly reaches 10C. Rain showers or rainy days and wind are common. In the beginning of June it hardly gets dark during the night.

Göteborg is, especially in the summer, a very lively city with plenty of leisure opportunities within the city or its surroundings. Göteborg is green and spread-out, including many inhabited islands in the archipelago. Within the period of the course fall end of school year, end of the academic year as well as Sweden’s national day (June 6). You might see many school classes celebrating the end of their school life.
