Four centuries of remarkeble and exciting stories
Gothenburg has turned 400 years old, and that’s four centuries of remarkable and exciting stories. Join us on a walk from Stora Hamnkanalen to Hagakyrkan. Hear about the huge city fires and how the canals were the city’s lifeblood. After the city’s walls were demolished, a green area was planted around the old city, a breathing hole for the population. During the 19th century, many of the city’s stone houses were built. Who built them and for what? During the walk, we talk about people’s lives and about buildings that have been important to the city and its inhabitants throughout the centuries.
The guided city tours takes place in collaboration with Goteborg & Co. In english.
