Gothenburg Riverfront

Introduction

Gothenburg is Sweden's second largest city.

Where You're Docked

There are two main cruise terminals for Gothenburg. Freeport is a 20 minute walk across the bridge to the city or you can shorten your trip by catching a tram at Frihamnen stop. Larger ships dock at Arendal (directly beside the Volvo Museum) or Skandiahamnen (container port adjacent to the east) 5 miles to the west. Shuttles are usually provided to the city center (Gustav Adolphs Square ) and may be provided to the port gates. Port website with link to cruise schedule http://www.portofgothenburg.com/

Money & Tipping

Sweden's currency is the Swedish Krona (SEK). Sweden is moving towards a cashless country. Most self-serve kiosks will require credit cards with chip and pin (not chip and signature). https://www.theguardian.com/business/2016/jun/04/sweden-cashless-society-cards-phone-apps-leading-europe

A small tip is appreciated but not expected when dining in restaurants or taking a taxi.

Local Transportation

You can get around on Gotheburg's extensive tram network. Ticket machines onboard take credit cards (chip and pin only). Tourist guide available from the public transport website http://www.vasttrafik.se/

There is a tourist sightseeing train http://stinsensightseeing.se/
