Gothenburg’s Christmas Markets

Gothenburg’s Christmas Markets Overview

If the idea of feeling festive in a vibrant, cool and beautiful city appeals, then we recommend a few days in Gothenburg before Christmas.

  • vibrant city with a wonderful pre-Christmas atmosphere
  • high-quality, centrally located hotel
  • walk along the 3-kilometre Lane of Light
  • wealth of culture, plus great shopping

The people of Gothenburg know how to enjoy Christmas. The three-kilometre-long Lane of Light connecting the port to the country’s largest Christmas market is renowned throughout Scandinavia and, with a few days here during Advent, you’ll soon find yourself swept into the festive spirit.
The festive magic of the Christmas markets is, however, but part of the story. Sweden’s vibrant second city oozes charm and style, with excellent shopping, a thriving gastronomic scene, and a wealth of cultural attractions. You stay in the heart of the city at the friendly Hotel Vanilla, with breakfast included in its justly renowned café.
