Radisson Blu Riverside Hotel, Gothenburg

Lindholmen and Lindholmen Science Park

Once known for its shipyards and fishing industry, Lindholmen is now home to the creative campus of Lindholmen Science Park, a business park with over 300 companies that research and collaborate in the areas of media, transportation, and information and communications technology. The Radisson Blu Riverside Hotel is adjacent to Lindholmen Science Park along the north bank of the Göta River harbor, giving you quick access to the companies found in the park plus all the shopping venues and restaurants that have sprung up around the park and the harbor. From Lindholmen, you can reach the heart of Gothenburg by a 5-minute bus or ferry ride. The ferry, found between the hotel and Rosenlund, is the best way to enjoy the beauty of the riverside city and is also the most economical—a ferry ride on weekdays between 07:00 and 19:00 is free.

Part of Lindholmen’s history is found in 24 19th-century wooden houses built by shipyard workers in an area known as Slottsberget. These charming hilltop homes resemble a medieval fishing village and have attracted modern residential areas, shops and cafés that make Slottsberget a thriving harbor area.

Swedish Ship Götheborg

In honor of the city’s maritime tradition, a shipyard in Gothenburg created a working replica of an 18th-century wooden sailing ship, the Götheborg, the largest of its kind in the world. The ship’s home port is Pier Four in the Eriksberg district of Gothenburg, beside Lindholmen, and is open for tours when the ship is in port.
