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.
Copenhagen 21 – 24 July, 2022 (changed from 20 – 24)
The forth stop on the great Asia Expedition 2022/2023 is the Danish capital, Copenhagen. It's the first time we are visiting Copenhagen and we hope to make it a memorable one. Götheborg of Sweden is moored at the waterfront area Nordre Toldbod, close to The Little Mermaid.
At 16:00 the 24th July we will leave the harbor and fire salute shortly thereafter. Hope to see you there!

Come on board the Götheborg! Learn about the history of the East India Companies and the adventures of the original Götheborg that sailed three times to Asia. Hear modern tales of sailing an 18th century ship, and about the exciting expedition to Asia.

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!
Where to find us
Götheborg of Sweden will be moored at the waterfront area Nordre Toldbod, just south of Kastellet and close to The Little Mermaid. Come and see us from the quayside or visit us during our opening hours. Welcome!

First time in Copenhagen
It's not the first time the ship visits Denmark. She visited Frederikshavn in 2009 and 2010, and Aarhus 2013. Now, nearly ten years later, it is time for us to head to Denmark again, and visit Copenhagen for the first time!

Sailing leg five
The Copenhagen–Oslo City Hopper
We will follow the Swedish West Coast all the way up to the beautiful Oslo Fjord. This sailing leg is one of the shortest of the whole Asia Expedition 2022/2023. Four full days of historically authentic sailing, that’s what you sign up for. Götheborg of Sweden is built as ships were built three centuries ago, which means the maintenance, too, needs to be old school. In other words, lots of fun things to learn for all deckhands. Enjoy the marine scenery as we slowly but surely approach the southern shores of Norway.
One hundred hours after leaving Copenhagen, we will arrive in Oslo. So, are you ready for an adventure packed with keeping watch out on the bowsprit, taking in and setting sails, and climbing down to the gun room during the fire round? Is that a yes?
On October 27, Götheborg of Sweden arrived to Barcelona and moored at one of the top locations in the city harbour: Port Vell/Rambla de Mar. The first weekend in Barcelona was the official stopover, with full crew, and the ship fully rigged. We want to thank Barcelona for the very warm welcome!
