Sweden - Goteborg & Southwest (Chapter)
This is the Göteborg & the Southwest chapter from Lonely Planet’s Sweden guidebook.
Göteborg has kicking bars, cafes, museums and theme-park thrills. Västergötland is low-key and eclectic: don’t miss film-production capital Trollhättan, or fairy-tale Läckö Slott. Bohuslän Coast is a marvel of electric-blue waters, granite islands and sparkling fishing villages. Dalsland has a brooding, landscape of silent lakes and thick, dark forests.
- plummet down outrageous roller coasters, take in counterculture cool art and be surprised by cutting-edge Swedish home cooking in Göteborg
- feast on shrimp and archipelago views on the tiny island of Hållö, a short ferry from Smögen
- soak in the charm of Fjällbacka, Ingrid Bergman’s favourite summer haunt
- restaurants & accommodation
