Welcome on board!
On board Götheborg you will visit the beautiful weather deck with the helm, capstan and ship’s bell. Sundeck offers great views of the ship and masts, and down on gun deck there are ten impressive cannons. Don’t miss the two pieces from the original ship, one piece by the historical cupboard with porcelain and chalk pipes on gun deck, and the other one recessed into the helm.
We have station guiding on board when in port. That means that you follow a marked route around the ship and the ship’s deckhands are stationed in different places around the ship, ready to tell you about the ship, sailing on board and the great Asia Expedition. Come prepared with all your questions!
Shop and Exhibition
Next to the ship you will find our shop where you can buy souvenirs from your visit, as well as an exhibition about the history of the original Götheborg, the building of the replica and the current expedition. Welcome!
H22 City Expo
H22 City Expo is a 35-day great city event and innovation show held in June, and Götheborg of Sweden will be at the heart of the city and events during its days in Helsingborg. H22 City Expo, with its strong message about sustainability and innovation, aligns perfectly with the mission for the Asia Expedition; to work as a platform for trade, relations and solutions for a sustainable future.
Sail with us to Helsingborg
Attention, all deckhands! Götheborg of Sweden, is heading out again. The first leg of the two-year expedition is between Gothenburg and Helsingborg, and this is the leg to be a part of – if climbing, getting the ship ready, learning about the rig, and taking her for the first run of the year is your thing, that is. And let’s not forget the spectacular departure from the Port of Gothenburg!
Sailing leg one
Götheborg is heading out again.
Should we save you a berth on the Pioneer Leg?
There will be a lot of fun sailing and also a lot to learn, in harbour and out at sea. Before leaving shore, the ship needs to get ready for a very long voyage. To make the final preparations happen, we need the help of committed deckhands. Yes, that’s you, guys – and we welcome beginners as well as old seadogs.
Also, don’t get fooled by how short the leg looks on the map. We will be making a detour, follow the weather, set as many sails as possible, and really test the ship!
Signing up for the Pioneer Leg will be a great learning experience and an adventure. Life onboard is full of the satisfaction that comes from a job well done, not to mention the suspense when a manouevre requires all hands on deck. Will you join us?
In September, Götheborg will sail to Lisbon, Portugal. It is the first time that the ship visits Portugal. Götheborg will be in Lisbon 5–8 September 2022 and will be moored at the central location of Cais Rocha Conde de Óbidos. The ship will be open to visitors during its stay. Welcome on board!
We have now been at the shipyard for a number of weeks in order to get ready for the Asia Expedition. We've had sunshine, rain and snowstorms during our time at Gotenius, but now it's time to head back to Pier 4 at Eriksberg in Gothenburg. Let us tell you all about it.
