Sweden’s second biggest city Gothenburg (Göteborg in Swedish) has quickly become one of Europe’s premier tourist and business spots. Gothenburg is known for its friendly atmosphere, top-class restaurants, a beautiful archipelago and for being the home of car manufacturer Volvo. Two international airports serve Gothenburg and the city is easy accessible with car from all other Nordic countries. The standard of the Gothenburg hotels has (just as the standard of the restaurants) become much higher in the last few years. Here you will find everything you need to know in order to book a good hotel, regardless if you want to find the cheapest possible lodging or if you want to spend some extra money to get a night a true first class hotel. Gothenburg is host to a number of international fairs and conferences. These are usually held at Svenska Mässan which is in the city centre. One of Gothenburg's many advantages is that almost all hotels, restaurants and other points of interest are within walking distance from each other. In addition to this Gothenburg is the host of one of Europe's premier music festivals, the Way Out West Festival in August as well as major outdoor concerts at the Ullevi Stadium. The summer also sees the world's biggest youth sports event, the Gothia Cup. Enjoy your stay in Gothenburg!
