Port of Gothenburg
Founded in 1621 by King Gustav II Adolf, Göteborg position at the mouth of the Baltic and North seas gave the city vital strategic importance as a gateway to the sea.
Today, Göteborg is still Sweden's primary shipping and passenger port and acts as a gateway to Europe and to Sweden. As the ship approaches Göteborg you will enter the archipelago of Bohus and Göteborg. You might glide by the picturesque lighthouses and quintessential red or brightly coloured sea-side towns crowded onto small rocky islands. But you will know you have arrived in Göteborg when you have passed the Älvborgs Bridge with its modern sweeping spires and spot the Göteborg Opera House with its distinctive prow shape.
The pier is conveniently located only 1 km from the centre of town with quayside public transport which means that you can begin your adventures in Göteborg and Sweden as soon as you like.
