Gothenburg is Sweden’s second largest city, which is located on the west coast and has become a booming cultural centre with many concerts and international sporting events.

Tipping in Sweden

Tipping is normally around 5-10% (more to round up the amount on the bill), however tipping is not mandatory and most often the service charge is included in the bill.


The Gothenburg Tram system is very comprehensive and the largest in Scandinavia.  There is also a good bus system as well as boat and ferry services.  There is no subway system.

There are two airports that serve Gothenburg.  Landvetter is 25km from the city centre and Gothenburg City Airport, the smaller of the two, is just 15km from the city.  A taxi to Landvetter will cost you around 300 SEK, whilst a bus (Flygbussen) is 80 SEK one way, 150 SEK return.
