what to do in Göteborg?!

heja!

I`m a member of an austrian-bavarian beer-league team and we visit Sweden in October for some kind of a "training-camp" in Gislaved

we also visit Göteborg for one day and my question is if there is anything interesting you have to see. I mean, I now its a beauty of a city but don`t know anything of its sights and, obviously, some hockey-related stuff would be cool too

thanks!

What do you and your friends like to do?

Not sure if the Volvo museum is open in October but if it is, it would be a good place to go if you are into cars.

I love my city, but there isn't really that much to do here after the summer ends. The art museum might be worth checking out and there are a few nice Michelin Star-level restaurants, but other than that there isn't much.
There are bars and clubs obviously, but you'd find those in any European city this size.

thanks guys!

well, to clear a few things:

its a saturday at the beginning of Oct, the 6th or 7th I guess

the interests are pretty different: I`m a hugh Sweden fan and wanna see something from the town. some guys, especially the older ones, gonna focus on beer`n`booze

watching hockey would be great, but we just stay for one day, travel to Hamburg overnight. I don`t know when we leave exactly

are there any big sports-stores or something like that? buying hockey-stuff isn`t all that easy here, a really big store would be cool

October is the busiest month of the SEL regular season, so if you're lucky there's a game in town, otherwise you can catch it at a sports bar, and many regular bars too.

Personally I like to try the local cuisine at a high class restaurant when I'm abroad. If you're in to that I can recommend a couple really good places.

Yea there are some really big sports stores, but they are located out in the perimeter areas (Sisjön, Bäckebol), so you need a car. There's also a store called Pro Hockey Shop, close to Bäckebol.

Touristy stuff: Liseberg, it's still open that weekend. Universeum is a pretty cool science centre with a huge rainforest and aquarium. There are many good museums, museum of world culture, the city museum, maritime museum and aquarium, the Maritiman ship museum (they have a submarine you can enter), natural history museum, röhsska design museum, volvo museum. If the weather is good you can take a sightseeing tour on the canals, takes about an hour and they have guides that speak english and german. Skansen Kronan is a popular tourist attraction, you can also go to Ramberget on Hisingen, it's the city's best lookout spot.
