Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel, Gothenburg

Paddan Sightseeing Tour

One of the most enjoyable ways to see Gothenburg is by going on a Paddan sightseeing tour along the city’s historic canals, which date back to the 1600s. The trips depart from Kungsportsplatsen, which is only a ten minute walk from the hotel. From there, local tour guides will be on hand to share their knowledge of the city's history and culture as the boat makes its way around the waterways.

Experience Gothenburg by boat

Gothenburg’s harbor is the longest in Sweden and has played a major role in the development of the city over the years. Come and see these beautiful canals and all that surrounds them first hand on a boat tour. The Paddan boats go under some 20 bridges and take in the Opera House, the Eriksberg neighborhood, the docks and amazing views of the harbor. One of the highlights is the ‘cheese slicer’ bridge, so called because it is so low. A trip on Paddan’s boats is a must for anyone looking to get a feel for the city and its waterways at a leisurely pace.

Hop-on hop-off

These trips along the canals have been running since 1939, and are one of the most popular things to do for visitors and locals alike. When on the boat, you can opt to hop off and discover some other areas a little further. Areas like the Haga District are wonderful to stroll through, so grab yourself an all day ticket so you can explore at your own pace.

The Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel, Gothenburg is the best place to recharge tired batteries after a day spent on a Paddan Sightseeing tour. A departure port is walking distance away from the hotel, so if you are planning on setting out by boat, ask the reception for instructions on how to get there.
