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!

Sail with us from Stockholm

You can be part of the unique adventure of sailing as a deckhand on board Götheborg. You will experience life on board a 18th century ship and make friends for life. As a deckhand you sail together with the professional crew, are not required to have any sailing experience and will get training on board. Read more about the  sailing leg from Stockholm below. 

Sailing leg four

The Danish leg

Sailing the Baltic Sea

Sailing from the capital of Sweden to that of Denmark, anything could happen. Signing up for the Danish Leg will mean a full week of gorgeous sailing in the beautiful Baltic Sea, climbing the rig, and carrying out your daily chores. One of those, tarring the ship, is not only a lot of fun, it is also a vital task to keep Götheborg of Sweden in shape for what’s to come. There’s no way you could come any closer to the actual life of a deckhand 300 years ago (although, luckily for all of us on board, Götheborg today has all the comforts of modern life, while the original ship did not). But first, you will need to sign up as a deckhand on the Danish Leg. Are you ready?
