This tour will give you an opportunity to get a great overview of Gothenburg while at the same time having some free time to explore the city on your own. You'll begin at Gustav Adolf Square and find out about the history of Gothenburg and the significance of the canals to Gothenburg as a trade centre. Then you continue down to the water to admire the famous Gothenburg Opera House. You will drive west along the harbour to the cultural point "Klippan". Here you will learn more about the old working quarters of Majorna and Masthugget where dockers and sailors used to live in the past with their families. You will also see the famous statue of Poseidon by Carl Milles rising above the famous square called Götaplatsen and overlooking the main street - Avenyn - with its many pubs, shops and restaurants. Driving through Gothenburg other highlights on your route will be the events district, where you will pass by: the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre, Sweden's most famous amusements park Liseberg, and more. You will also pass by the Nya Ullevi Stadium - Scandinavia's biggest event arena with a capacity of 43,000 seats. The tour will continue with a visit to Masthugg Church (dating back to 1914 and built in the national Romantic style) from where you will have a fantastic view of the surroundings before continuing to the Haga district. Haga is renowned for its picturesque wooden houses, 19th century atmosphere and cafés. Originally a working class suburb of the city with a rather bad reputation, it was gradually transformed into a popular visiting place for tourists and Gothenburgers. A major renovation of the area was carried out in the 1980s, when houses were either renovated or demolished and replaced by post-modern replicas. After your visit to Haga and some free time you will return back to the ship.
