MASTHUGGET - NYLÖSE
Discover Gothenburg and it’s history. Gothenburg was founded in 1621 by Gustaf II Adolf. The trail will take you towards the old town at the mouth of Göta River: New Lödöse. At the end of the 1400s, New Lödöse was built at the site where Gamlestaden is today. Here is where you’re going.
The starting point is Pilgrim Center in Masthugget, or wherever you decide—because this is your hike. There are many beautiful, historic paths between the church of Masthugget and the final destination, Lödöse church. Whether it’s by foot, by bus, tram or train, Gamlestaden is an exciting option for your trip.
Experience rich history on your way. Enjoy the views. Hike up to Skansen Crown. Walk through Haga and through the town within Vallgraven (Stora Hamnkanalen and Fattighus canal). Kronhuset is Gothenburg’s best-preserved house from the 17th century (completed in 1654) and is a German church erected by Governor Rutger von Ascheberg. Via Trädgårdsföreningen in central Gothenburg, you’ll walk along Vallgraven and on to the riverbank, towards Redbergsplatsen and then finally towards Nylöse. Welcome to the old Gothenburg route. Fun fact: The famous Swedish meatballs is known around the world. They are usually served with lingon-berry sauce. Be sure to try some!
