Paddan

Paddan

The best way to take in Gothenburg is from the water. The guided city tour passes under many, often low bridges, including the famous “Cheese slicer” bridge, and out to the harbour. The boat departs from Kungsportsplatsen, right in the city centre and the tour takes about 50 minutes. All aboard and let Paddan show you Gothenburg!

Kungsportsavenyn, or simply Avenyn, stretches from the bridge Kungsportsbron by the Moat to Götaplatsen and the Museum of Art, the City Theatre, The Concert Hall and the Poseidon statue. Avenyn is lined with shops, cosy cafés, renowned restaurants and popular bars. It gets extra lively here in the summer when holidaymakers gather at the outdoor serving areas.
