    Two days - Itinerary

    by csuresh Online Now Sep 29, 2015 at 8:04 AM

    We are travelling to Goteborg coming weekend and we have almost two full days to spend. We want to visit Archipelago but not sure which island is the best and which one that is best but very near to city - request help. We also will be going to Universum and then just landmarks in city center. I need help if I can add more or refine my selection of places. We have taken some nice food in Ikea, so hope Sweden has some good restaurants offering vegetarian food - any suggestions..

    My mother's family is from Romelanda and I'd like to visit the area. Is Kungalv/Romelanda a better day trip from Gothenburg or will there be enough to do (we'll be there mid-Sept) that we'll want to stay overnight? Is Kungalv the closest town to Romelanda in which to stay?

    Three potential itineraries through Sweden and/or Denmark (all ending in Goteborg)

    by frey78 Online Now Mar 27, 2012 at 12:35 PM

    I'm traveling to Sweden and/or Denmark in June 2012 with my wife and 8 month old daughter for about 9-10 days. We are renting a car and hope to see a mix of countryside, small towns, coastline, historic sights, natural beauty, and "must-sees" in the area. We want to spend time outdoors, but with a small baby, we can't do intense hikes, canoe trips, etc. Also, we'd like to spend some time in a big city or two, but also want to drive out and get away from the crowds.

    I have three possible itineraries that I'm having trouble deciding on. For those who have been to Scandinavia, which option would you choose and why? And do you have any particular recommendations along each path? Also, I know each option goes almost all the way up to Oslo, but I am not inclined to go that far; seems like just another big, expensive city.

    OPTION 1: Copenhagen -> Gothenburg (through Sweden)
    Couple days in Copenhagen, take the ferry from Helsingor into Sweden. Malmo, Foteviken Viking Reserve, Ystad in the south, then swing up north along the coast. Go up to Stromstad, ferry into the Koster Islands, Tanum, Smogen, and Gothenburg the last couple of days.

    OPTION 2: Copenhagen -> Gothenburg (through Denmark)
    Couple days in Copenhagen, head west through Roskilde to Odense / Egeskov castle. Up to Aarhus, north to Frederikshavn, ferry over to Sweden. The second half is the same as option 1 (Stromstad, Tanum, Smogen, Gothenburg).

    OPTION 3: Stockholm -> Gothenburg
    Couple days in Stockholm, up to Sigtuna or Uppsala, stay in Orebro or a small town nearby. West to Lake Varnem, Lacko Slott, Uddevalla, Stromstad, The rest is the same as the other two options.

    Hello everyone.
    Will be in Göteborg, for 8 days next week onward. Would like it if you all can give me ideas &/or lead me to useful links on your/others pages.

    A) What would be a good way to spend evenings (just for a stroll/a post-dinner walks)?
    B) I may get a chance to do a day trip or two during this period. So please throw at me the options - interests: landscape; history; culture; OR a must-have local food preparation/meat; beer tasting.
    Is an Oslo day-trip a good idea? I will use public transport.

    Awaiting the responses!

    Public Transport and other questions!

    I'm coming to Goteborg in May for the Swedish Speedway Grand Prix with my 14 year old son...but trying to do it on a budget. We'll have two days to also discover Goteborg and I was thinking about going to the art galleries (which I think are free) and a few other central things....I have lots of questions!
    1) What would be a good idea for something to do on a Sunday Morning in Goteborg?
    2) I'm a bit confused about the public transport system as the Vasttrafik website is not very clear...Do 14 year olds travel free on all public transport, or is it only if I buy a one-day or three day card?...Is there a two day card?
    3) I can't find a downloadbale tram map..any links?
    4) Is it best to travel to the Uwelli Stadium by tram...or is that a bad idea for big crowd events...can you walk there from the centralstation

    Thanks for any help!

    arriving on cruiseship early morning in Goteborg. would like to arrange a day tour, possibly for small group for 8-12 fellow passengers, to Marstrand. can anyone recommend a local agent who can do this? pick-up at port around 8-9am, return to ship by 4pm, to include a boat or ferry ride around archipelago, some time to spend on land to see some of Marstrand and Goteborg. Please include price per person.

    OR may be just 2-4 of us to go via taxi to get to Marstrand, spend some time there with stop in Goteborg on return, then back to ship. do most of touring and walking around on our own. How much would taxi fare be round-trip, Goteborg-Marstrand?

    other suggestions on how to spend the day are welcome.
