Best places to see in Sweden

Feskekôrka Fish Market
Popular areas
This market’s a corker for fish-loving foodies! Built in 1874, locals dubbed it the “Fish Church”. Snap a selfie in front of its low-slung roof and angular window arches that mimic medieval stave churches and Gothic steeples. Venture inside for a mouth-watering feast of fresh oysters, succulent shrimp and luscious lobster. Then toast the day with Swedish schnapps. “Skål!”

Museum of World Culture
Museums
The world is your oyster. This museum’s rolling revue of multimedia exhibitions revolve around the theme of cultural diversity. Dip into an array of wide-ranging topics, from Vietnamese gender norms to Bolivian symbols of identity. Yet, while we’re all different, we are also “one” – sing, dance and peruse 1,000 objects in the family-friendly “Together” exhibit to find out how.

Röda Sten
Theatres
This gallery is set in an old boiler house under Älvsborg Bridge. Since the ’90s, it’s forged a reputation for hosting cutting-edge exhibitions that really turn up the heat. Pour over everything from sound collages and video installations, to contemporary painting and performance art. Then, chill over a veggie brunch and live DJ sets in the café – now that’s “West Coast cool”!

Gothenburg Harbour
Marinas
Until the late ’70s, shipbuilding defined this harbour. Today, the Göta River’s banks brim over with picture-postcard scenes. Gaze up at the lofty “Viking” bark ship, and salute the statue of Evert Taube, a local folk-music legend. Dive into the city’s seafaring past at the Maritime Museum, then make ancient Älvsborg Fortress and the pretty archipelago your last port of call.

Ericsson Globe
Stadiums and arenas
“What’s that giant white ball over there?”, asked the tourist. Why, that’s the world's largest spherical building! “Globen” is a huge installation where all Sweden's biggest concerts and its most important ice hockey matches are staged. You can even catch a gondola that ascends along the outside of the sphere to the very top, giving you incredible views of Stockholm.
Accommodation near Ericsson Globe
Ullevi Stadium
Stadiums and arenas
Named after the Norse god of games, this arena’s been the site of football fairytales. In the ’80s, amateurs IFK Gothenburg regularly beat European giants like Hamburg and Barcelona. Today, music acts like U2, Springsteen and Madonna pack the stands. You can still cheer on IFK, though – just follow the sea of blue-and-white scarves to nearby Gamla Ullevi, their new home.
