Gothenburg Airport Mini Guide
Landvetter Airport is only 13 miles south east of Gothenburg which is easily accessed by road link from the airport. There's a public transport route into the city from the airport but for speed and convenience we'd recommend you to hire a car from rhinocarhire.com. If you pre-book online, you'll have an excellent choice of vehicle for your stay and can ask for many optional extras to be fitted prior to collecting the car.
All we'll need then is to see your reservation voucher, driving licence and credit card and you'll be on your way whilst others wait for their bus. During your stay you'll then have the convenience of your own vehicle and driving in and around the city is easy with its clear road signs.
Gothenburg is a fascinating city, the second largest in Sweden and the home of Volvo cars. It is situated on the west coast of Sweden and is considered the most centrally located of the Scandinavian cities, a factor which has helped it grow in importance over the years. It was once owned by the Dutch who planned much of the city along canals like Amsterdam
although strangely there was a big influence from the Scots at the time with many of the city’s industries being founded by them.
The city is known for its parks and its love of sports. It’s estimated that there are 20,000 sailing boats in Gothenburg’s marinas and sailing around the nearby archipelago is a favourite pastime. In the city there are dozens of parks and open spaces. Those most worth visiting include the Gothenburg Botanical gardens which were voted the most beautiful gardens in Europe and the Slottsskogen which is a park with an open zoo.
Visitors there will find dozens of species of animals sharing the parkland with them including elk and penguins! Architecturally, the city is important too with classical architecture as seen in the Gothenburg City Museum building, formerly East India House. This is definitely worth visiting as you’ll find out more about the intriguing development of the city. For those who love shopping, try the Nordstan Shopping Centre with over 100 different shops boutiques and restaurants it’s a shopaholic’s dream. And finally at night head to ‘Avenyn’ - the Avenue, for a great selection of bars and clubs.
