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 Valletta Waterfront, just south of the Valletta city center. Come and see us from the quayside or visit us during our opening hours. Welcome!

The Maltese Connection – Nice to Valletta

Heading South Once Again!
The Maltese Connection coming up

Götheborg will be leaving Nice on 6 October. Destination this time? Valletta, the smallest capital in the European Union. More importantly, the city is a World Heritage site and is often referred to as an open-air museum of, among other things, Baroque architecture.

This leg of our expedition, therefore, should be of certain interest to those who love not only to sail in the beautiful early Mediterranean autumn, but also have a thing for the wings of history. If that sounds like you, you may well be one of the deckhands we are looking for.

The Maltese Connection will see Götheborg sail past Corsica and Sardinia, before passing between Tunisia and Sicily. Upon arrival in Valletta, we will be warmly welcomed. It’s more than likely we will have experienced dolphins along the way to Götheborg’s southernmost destination during 2022.

Days sailing: 8 days
Days in port: 4 days

Sign on: Nice, 5 October 2022
Sign off: Valletta, 17 October 2022
