Ready to walk?
Hi everyone, we finally had some sun and blue sky here, in Sweden. Last week, the feast of the Ascension, I had the visit of my parents and I had the challenge to come up with the organization of visits, walks and sightseeing. I am living in Sweden, in the city of Göteborg, since January but I didn’t really had the opportunity to act like a tourist. Because my parents are only there for a few days I didn’t want to go far from the city. So here is what I think is a “Must see” in Gothenburg. I wanted to start with a visit of the neighbourhood near my school (Handelshögskolan, School of Business, Economy and Law) and of Haga.
One of the easiest way to visit the city centre is to walk from Brunnsparken station to Haga neighbourhood. It is one of the best way to enjoy the atmosphere of the city and the architecture of the buildings. We went from Brunnsparken to Kungsportplatsen, we crossed the bridge and walked through the park until Göteborg University main building, we followed vasagatan to Haga Nygata, which is one of the entrance of Haga. If you have the chance to go to Haga, café Husaren is a good adress for drinking coffee and eating delicious pastries such as the largest cinnamon bun in the entire world! If you walk a little you will see stairs and if you follow them you will arive on the Skansen kronan, which is on top of Haga and you can have a 360° degrees view. Enjoy!
We saw on top of the Skansen kronan two chuches from afar, one of them is the Oscar Frederiks Church (Oscar Fredriks Kyrkogata 1a) and the other one is Masthuggskyrkan (Storebackegatan 15, Göteborg 413 18) which have a wooden interior and have one of the best panorama view. These two churchs are “close” to each other so it’s a good opportunity to visit them if you are in the area.
You can take a bus or a tram to go there, in our case we walked from Skansen kronan to Oscar Frederiks Church and to Oscar Frederiks Church to Masthuggskyrkan. In the end we went back from Masthuggskyrkan to Haga….by walking, yes, yes we were a bit tired after, and therefore after walking back we stopped at a café in Haga and enjoyed sitting under the sun and the blue sky!
I really liked this first day with my parents, we walked a lot, took some pictures and ate some kanelbullar to recover. So excited for the rest of the program!
Where are we going next Gothenburg?
