Wander the cobbled streets to soak up the 19th-century atmosphere of Gothenburg’s oldest district. Formerly a working-class neighborhood, Haga’s wooden houses have been repurposed as independent shops and cafés with a cosmopolitan vibe.
While the cafés are a little more expensive here than in other parts of the city, the setting makes a stop worthwhile. For unique souvenirs, check out the area’s many antique and thrift shops.
Your trip to Haga is easy to combine with a visit to Skansen Kronan fortress (beware the steep steps!) or the Natural History Museum.
