A journey from the 18th century til today

Götheborg of Sweden is a fascinating destination located in the city of Gothenburg – a ship loaded with experience. A genuine working ship with a vibrant history, scarred by harsh storms and marked by thousands upon thousands of nautical miles on the seven seas. Here, during our guided tours, visitors get to know everything from captivating stories about our many sailing adventures to the tremendous art of shipbuilding, in a contemporary 18th-century environment.

Welcome on board!
