European Tour 2023

Expedition 2023

Götheborg of Sweden is the world's largest ocean-going wooden sailing ship, an 18th century replica of the original Götheborg that sank outside of Gothenburg in 1745, and will create great attention wherever she goes. We have been on expedition sailing in Europe in both 2022 and 2023. Götheborg has now returned to its home port Gothenburg and is participating in the Jubilee Festival in Frihamnen 2–5 June.

Thank you for amazing days at the Jubilee Festival

Gothenburg is our final stopover in 2023! We arrived the 2nd of June with a gun salute at 15:00, officially starting the City of Gothenburg's 400th anniversary celebrations. Thank you for amazing days during the Jubilee Festival! We had over 7,000 people visiting us on board!

Tomorrow, the 7th of June at 08:30 we will return to our home quay in Eriksberg. We will moor around 9:00–9:30. We will also treat you to another gun salute on the way!

The 17th of June we will open to visitors on Eriksberg and stay open during the summer. More information will also be announced in the next days.

Hamburg was specifically chosen as a key stopover for Götheborg as Greencarrier (our owner) opened new offices in Hamburg in April. On Monday, we were very pleased to welcome especially invited customers, partners and friends of Greencarrier Group on board.
