What is the best time of year to visit Gothenburg?
Gothenburg is great any time of year, even in winter, when the Christmas markets give it a deliciously romantic feel. But all things considered, we’d opt for a holiday here as summer approaches, days become long, and nature is in full bloom. Ideal conditions for strolling through the city’s parks and enjoying one of the barbecues the Swedish so love. It should also be noted that August is the city's most festive month. In addition to the bars, pubs and night clubs that light up the Gothenburg nights are two festivals: Gothenburg Culture Festival, a joyous mix of dance, opera, street performances, carnivals, jazz, and design; and Way Out West, a huge music festival where for two days Slottsskogen Park becomes a stage, with performances by international stars and local unknowns.
