Stories of Gothenburg

City maps

Gothenburg is approaching its 400 anniversary. 400 years of multiculture and influences from all over the world. Prior to the jubilee the city asked for ideas from Gothenburgers. Many people wanted to present the city´s history and stories of Gothenburg. This was the starting point for the project Stories of Gothenburg. 

The aim of the project is to share with one another knowledge and stories about the place where we live. The project therefor offers city walks for newcomers, among other things, and the city walk map "Walk with me" for newcomers is a part of this. It is for free, availible in the museums reception and makes it possible to get to know your city on your own. This map is one of a series of city walks that will present Gothenburg from different perspectives during the years ahead. 

To read more about Gothenburg´s Jubilee: 

The city walks are arranged in cooperation with Administration for allocation of Social Welfare:,
