Heading out once again

Asia Expedition 2022/2023

Götheborg of Sweden is the world's largest ocean-going wooden sailing ship, and she will create great attention wherever she goes. We are now on a great expedition to Asia! During a two year adventure, we are sailing in Europe in 2022 and will continue to Asia in 2023.

Götheborg of Sweden will stay in Europe in 2023

Update about the Asia Expedition: Götheborg of Sweden is now moored in Barcelona for the winter stopover, and the plan has been to continue to Asia in March 2023. This plan has now been postponed, and the ship will instead sail in the Mediterranean and Northern Europe in 2023.

Hola Barcelona!

Götheborg has come to Barcelona for her winter stay. We are moored at Moll de Bosch i Alsina, at Rambla de Mar. During the winter we will be open to visitors most weekends. Come and visit her in the city harbor! 

Opening hours

The ship will be open to visitors most weekends until March 2023. 

Our opening hours these weekends are: 

  • Saturdays: 15:00 - 19:00 (last entry 18.15)  
  • Sundays: 15:00 - 19:00 (last entry 18.15)  

We have station guiding on board. The ship deckhands are stationed throughout the ship to answer questions in English. 

The visit takes about 45 minutes to an hour. 

It will also be possible to do events on board. More information about that will be published shortly.
