Nach einer Stärkung im Kaufhaus "Nordstan" legten wir mit dem Shopping los. Göteborg hat nämlich eine sehr große "Geschäftsdichte", wenn man das so sagen kann, was mein Shoppingherz natürlich höher schlagen ließ. Durch guten "Rea" (Abverkauf) sind auch viele Schnäppchen zu finden. Generell kann man aber sagen, dass für jeden Geldbeutel etwas dabei ist.
Göteborg ist eine Stadt, die man durchaus öfter besichtigen kann ohne, dass einem langweilig wird, da sie in jeder Hinsicht einiges zu bieten hat!

Even though the fact that we live in a village and that we visit little cities from time to time is what I enjoy most about the holidays in Sweden, I have to get into town once every stay. Because Gothenborg is only 45 minutes from here and it is easy to get there by train, this town is perfect for a day trip. Since we did a lot of sightseeing when we were there last year and we went on a tour by the sightseeing-boat, "Paddan" (which is very recommendable), we decided to do a mixture of sightseeing and shopping this time. We started with the museum, "Maritiman", which consists of several (war-)ships which can all be visited. Besides the biggest ship, a destroyer, you can also visit some smaller ships, among them a submarine, which is still under water (and therefore not very easy to get on). I generally have to say that the museum is not very comfortable for frail people because you have to pass many steep stairs and the outer parts of the ships are not very well secured. But that is also what makes a visit in this museum adventurous and interesting. Furthermore you have a great view over Gothenburg's harbour.
After lunch in the shopping centre "Nordstan" we started our shopping tour. There is a very high "shop density" in Gothenburg, if one can say so, which makes my shopping heart beat faster. Because of a good "Rea" (Sale) you can also find many bargains. But you can generally say that there are shops for every budget.
Gothenburg is a city you can totally visit several times without getting bored because it has much going for in every aspect.
