Gothenburg is putting on her Christmas finest just for you. From 12th November central Gothenburg is transformed into the Christmas City, starting with the opening of the traditional Christmas market at Liseberg Amusement Park, and the illumination of the white fairy lights along the Lane of Light. The glittering Christmas illuminations in the Lane of Light stretch three kilometers from Liseberg amusement park, past Götaplatsen, along Avenyn, the city’s main boulevard, and all the way to down to the city’s harbor.
Shops and boutiques along the Lane of Light and neighboring shopping districts, are decked out in their Christmas finery, and open every day of the week. City restaurants get into the seasonal spirit too with mouth-watering julbord, a festive smörgåsbord, and being Gothenburg, it is often served with a maritime twist. Also, don’t miss the many bustling Christmas markets within the city as well as in the surrounding countryside.
