Tickets & prices
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.
