We found this fantastic video of Kosterhavet Marine National Park by Knut Bergsten and it made us long for summer…
If you’re a foodie, then pay attention!
You need to visit Gothenburg, Sweden. The city is arguably one of the best destinations in the world when it comes to food. We have already discussed the merits of Sill (that’s Herring, remember?) but how does Gothenburg hold up when it comes to food for the refined palates of gourmands?
Very well indeed thank you! In fact, Gothenburg has no less than five Michelin-starred restaurants and a whole host of contenders that cater to gastronomical travellers with the most acquired tastes.
Take a look here for an overview of ten great Gothenburg restaurants and check out the video below for a tour of the aforementioned Michelin-starred eateries.

We must not have been paying attention, because we had no idea we were heading to Herring Island until we smelled it. My wife and I had been roaming the roads of West Sweden in early winter, through the low forests and farmhouses, heading west toward the water and a restaurant we only knew as Salt & Sill on a tiny outcropping of Tjörn called Klädesholmen. I am a profound fan of herring, an enthusiast for all forms of smoked and salted and pickled fish, and yet in my jet-lagged state I didn’t know that “sill” is Swedish for “herring.”
Scandinavia’s largest Christmas market at Liseberg and innovative, stylish lighting design and attractions along the central three kilometre Lane of Light.
The first day of the lobster season is the first Monday after 20 September, this year 27 September. Lobsters safaris, followed by lobster suppers, are arranged at a number of places along the coast.
The music festival that started in Göteborg in 2007 was a success with a great line up of international names. The festival will be back in 2009 at Slottskogen City Park, central Göteborg.
This festival offers a packed programme of top-class entertainment on stages and venues across the heart of the city. A free event for all ages, taking place from 10 to 15 August. Music, open air dance floors, great food, an arts and crafts market and activities galore are all found here.
