The Paddan Tour

Gothenburg from a new perspective


Step aboard in the centre of the city at Kungsportsplatsen and see the old moat and canals that date from the 17th century while learning about the history of the city’s construction and defence.

The guided tour continues beneath the many low bridges, including the extremely low Osthyveln (”cheese slicer”) bridge, which brings us out into the fascinating harbour with traditional shipyards, the fishing harbour, new and old housing, expanding commercial and academic sites and maritime museum.
