Very nice street in the city where you can find plenty of nice restaurants and activity centers. You should definitely have a walk around if you in Stockholm.

The range of shops and eating houses make this street the number one in Gothenburg. Did you know the pavements are heated? So these is no snow here in winter!

This square offers feeling of space and beautiful view to buildings surrounding it. The fountain must be lovely in warmer period.

I have been traveling then living in Gothenburg for a few months. Avenyn was for sure one of the favorites part of the city. During spring and summer it is great to have a morning walk on Avenyn.

This is the central area of Gothenburg with lots of shopping places and eateries. Take a stroll to get the feel of this Swedish city. It's very beautiful at night with all gleaming lights.

Do you want to shop, you find almost everything here. Do you want to eat, all different kind of food and style you find here as well. Nice to just take a walk and feel the atmosphere.

I recommend that you walk once up and down this avenue and keep your eyes open for things you want to enjoy further. Personally I try to stay away from Avenyn, but then again I live in Gothenburg :)

If you've been to Paris, you'd instantly think this avenue is very reminiscent of Champs Elysees. It does however, lack the quaint cafés and posh shops. But it still does have it's own charm. Its a good stroll from the Kungsportsplatsen where many of the summer tourist boats are docked. Walk southward and you'll pass the Big City Theater and... More

Great street to stroll down and do a little shopping. Grab a coffee at a cafe along the way and make a day of it.
