Haga district is full of small delights - gastro and retail. 2 nd hand, eco friendly, arts - lots to captivate you and far from biting shopping senters

Quaint little shops, and around Christmas it's like walking in a winter fairytail! Plenty of cafés, and a taste of what Old Gothenburg looked like. Absolutely worth a visit!

This is a great street to wander down. Cobble stones and very few cars. Pedestrians pretty much wander around as they choose. The shops and interesting. Several 2nd hand shops, a couple of upper market antique shops, a great handcraft leather shop making this from reindeer skin etc, a handmade soap shop, and other interesting shops.

Take a stroll through the old part of Gothenburg and make sure to visit Haga. The old workers quarter with beautiful historical buildings and nice shops

A nice surprise, this part of the city. Very beautiful houses and style, but also completely renovated, with expensive and trendy shops. So calles alternative items, but they mix everything that is oriental, esoteric, ... But a visit of the city without this part would be really uncomplete. Dozens of cafés and shops and bars.

A quiet wander through these streets will bring rewards. Lovely shops, good cafes, and whilst a tourist area, lacks the tatt. What I loved, was the lack of tourist paraphernalia. Beautiful Marimeko, lovely children's shops,decorating shops, and interesting second hand shop. Something for everyone. There is a sense of calm refinement here. ,

Had some time on my hands and wanted a nice little stroll, which brought me to Haga. There were many beautiful cafes where you can stop for a cup of aromatic coffee if you want :) Perfect for some historical sight seeing :)

A calm place not far from the city centre with coffe shops and local stores. Don't miss Skansen Kronan / Crown fortress! It has guided tours and interesting history from the 17:th century when Sweden where in war with Denmark. Take the tram to Järntorget or walk west from city centre.

I lived in this neighborhood for many years and I still go back and visit as often as I can. It is one of the few areas in Gothenburg that have kept its original appearance with streets cobbled with stone. The street to focus on is "Haga Nygata", this is where you find the small shops, restaurants, cafés, and tourists.... More

Haga is a pretty old fashioned part of Gothenburg. One main cobbled street With old wooden houses on each side. The shops are plentiful as are the cafés . Everything from Interior dekoration , antiques ,clothes you name it. A lovely place for a walk and a brouse. 20 minutes walk from avenue or 5 minutes on a tram
