City centre

City centre

Few other neighbourhoods have as many different shops as the city centre. Nordstan, Arkaden, the department store NK, and Kungstorget with the Market Hall are all great places to shop. From the latter, follow the three parallel pedestrian streets: Södra Larmgatan, Vallgatan and Kungsgatan to Magasinsgatan. Stroll along the first two and browse Swedish fashion brands like Tiger of Sweden or Filippa K, but also small independent shops featuring interior design, home decor and kitchen items. Don't miss the "secret" lane Victoriapassagen, between Vallgatan and Södra Larmgatan. The cosy oasis emits a lovely scent of coffee and chocolate, thanks to the chocolatiers at Flickorna Kanold and the original Da Matteo cafe. Kungsgatan features mostly Scandinavian high street brands such as H&M, Gina Tricot and Din sko, while Magasingatan is the home of many Swedish brands like Velour and Acne, but also interior design and vintage fashion.

Haga & Linné

Haga & Linné

Haga is conveniently located within walking distance from the city centre; if you arrive by tram you can get off at the stops Hagakyrkan or Järntorget. The area is between Vasa and Linné, and the main street Haga Nygata stretches from one end to the other. A shopping spree is not complete without a proper coffee break, and Haga is perfect for the occasion with its many cafes lined along Haga Nygata. The selection of shops is varied, with everything from a hatter to an independent toy store and a local marzipan and chocolate maker. You can also find interior decoration, fashion, antiques, tea, spices and olive oil. The neighbouring Linnéstaden, commonly known as Linné, is laid-back with plenty of local charm. By day a tempting mix of independent shops and cafes, and by night a bustling borough with eateries and bars.

Avenyn

Avenyn

Kungsportsavenyn, commonly known as Avenyn, stretches from the bridge Kungsportsbron by the canal to Götaplatsen and the Museum of Art, the City Theatre and the Concert Hall. The main boulevard is busy all day until late. The side streets have a lot to offer, especially the ones towards the Vasa neighbourhood. Smaller independent shops and restaurants are also found along Södra vägen. One of the latest additions on the main boulevard is Kopparhuset, a galleria where you can take a look at Tommy Hilfiger's American denim fashion, or the flagship store of Swedish high street brand Lindex. The Nespresso Boutique is another highlight. Both the Gothenburg Museum of Art and the Röhsska Museum of design has great museum shops featuring books, design items and prints.
