Lindholmen and Lindholmen Science Park
The hotel is located in Lindholmen Science Park, which is part of the modern district of Lindholmen on the North Bank of Göta Älv. The area is located in central Gothenburg, only five minutes by bus or river ferry from the most central parts of the city. The ferry is a fun and relaxing way of getting around, is free weekdays between 07:00 and 19:00, and is located between the hotel and Rosenlund.
Lindholmen has a fascinating history, and at Slottsberget, overlooking the harbor, there are 24 old wooden houses left that resemble an old fishing village. Lindholmen was formerly known for its shipbuilding industry whose premises have now made room for docks, new residential areas, restaurants, a theatre and cafés. Take a walk along the new Gothenburg that has emerged and soak up the atmosphere of this authentic sea town. The stroll between Älvsborgsbron and Gota älvbron is five kilometres long. Download the “Kajpromenad” app, available for iPhones and Android phones, and the map will help you to find your way around the area and offer tips on everything from art to outdoor cafés.
At the Pier Four, you will find the old ship Götheborg (if not off at sea), one of the world 's largest wooden sailing ships. The ship is open to the public and holds a museum inside. There is also another museum on Lindholmen, the Radio Museum. Other points of interest are the Backa Theatre and the oldest cinema in Gothenburg- Aftonstjärnan.
