Our final stopover in 2023 is Gothenburg – the home port of Götheborg! We arrived the 2nd of June officially starting the City of Gothenburg's 400th anniversary celebrations with gun salute. During the Jubilee Festival, we are moored at Frihamnen. We are open to visitors 3–5 June. Come visit us!

Gun salute kicked off the grand 400-year jubilee

The 2nd of June, at 15:00, Götheborg arrived to Gothenburg after a one-year sailing adventure to officially kick off the 400-year jubilee with gun salute. Thank you everyone who came to the quaysides and followed us in boats on the water! It was a lovely welcome!

The visit takes about 45 minutes to an hour. 

During the Jubilee Festival at Frihamnen, entrance to the ship is free of charge! Welcome on board!

Welcome on board!

Come on board and visit the ship! Learn about the history of the Swedish East India Company and the adventures of the original Götheborg that sailed three times to Asia. Hear modern tales of sailing an 18th century ship, feel the authentic atmosphere, and listen to everything from captivating stories to the tremendous art of shipbuilding.

Tour three decks

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.

Come prepared with all your questions!

Open all summer at Eriksberg

After the Jubilee Festival the ship will return to its home berth at the pier on Eriksberg and will stay open to visitors during the summer. We will be open everyday 17 June – 20 August, 11:00–17:00 with guided tours every half hour (closed Midsummer Weekend). Ticket sales will open shortly. Stay tuned.
