have added their personal touch to both the interior (which takes its cue from belle époque Paris) and the service. What was once part of Gothenburgs hard-working harbour area is now filled with trendy restaurants, bars and cafes. Make sure to mind your head under the low bridges though! But one of my favourites has to be the Konstmuseet, which has works by Van Gogh, Picasso and Rembrandt but what really holds my attention is a floor dedicated to 19th century Nordic art, including the beautiful, evocative paintings of Carl Larsson. This years line-up includes Patti Smith, Beck, Belle Sebastian and Ellie Goulding. However, I have to satisfy myself with a couple of small purchases in the museum shop instead. Beautiful décor and delicious local produce make it a foodie heaven especially the Sunday brunch buffet (Lilla Torget 1; ; ).

For lighter snacks, a Vietnamese food truck is parked in the courtyard. And it was an English architect who designed this red-brick building in the Annedal district in the 1880s. Well worth the short but relatively steep hike, especially if the weather is good. Luckily, a campaign succeeded in preserving them and they are now a popular attraction for locals and tourists. Hasselblad Centre, Röhsska textile museum and, gothenburg Museum of Art, it is well worth visiting. Gothenburgs art scene is not just about the modern day. A similar pattern was found in Barcelona and Madrid, though Copenhageners are the most likely to host friends at home. You can join a guided kayak tour and paddle past striking sights such as the opera house and the 83-metre tall Lipstick building (Lilla Bommen). These can be borrowed in several sizes from the reception desk. Most places are closed by 6pm. The green surroundings and white lilies lend it a fairytale vibe.
