Customer Travel Tip: Make time for the archipelago, and for casually strolling around the city. Cinnamon buns are amazing, and make use of the 7-elevens as they will be your friend!

Liked: Beautiful place, very open and clean. Lots of quirky little streets and nice parks. Archipelago is a highlight and a must see.

Disliked: Prices are (inevitably) quite high, so be prepared not to eat out much if you're on a budget!

Customer Travel Tip: Use it as a base to travel to the beautiful surrounding archipelagos and smaller cities and towns.

Liked: the accessibility to take boats and busses out of town to visit other beautiful and interesting places.

Disliked: There seemed to be little of interest to do for tourists such as galleries/exhibitions or free activities. It seemed to be a very general residential city with not much to offer for visitors.

Customer Travel Tip: Try the great local seafood like the shrimp or fish. Use the trams as they are fun and worth the money for a 3 day pass. Go to the art museum and they will give you a one year pass to 5 different museums for free, amazing deal.Do take the tram out to the ferry which takes you out the some islands in the Gothenburg Archipelago, very beautiful. Show your tram ticket and you don't have to pay a fee for the ferry to the islands, amazing deal.

Liked: Beautiful city, unpretentious cool city with much to offer. I love this city and would move here if i could. There is a beautiful harbor with free ferries, good museums, great shopping, excellent seafood, and reasonable prices. people are more friendly than the capitol, Stockholm. It has a lot of history and is easily walkable. Do take the trams and go out to the Archipelago for a beautiful day in the surrounding islands.

Disliked: nothing to dislike, seriously.
