If you live in Stockholm, you rarely find a reason to visit the city of Gothenburg - Sweden's second largest city. Why would you when you have the best of shops, cafes, restaurants around the corner...or? Well, it turns out that I was pretty wrong. Gothenburg is a magnificent, inspiring city! We got to spend 24h there, so here follows a mini-guide:
Stay at Hotel Pigalle. A unique and romantic french inspired boutique hotell. This place really made out stay in the city! All 26 rooms are individually decorated, great service-minded staff and excellent breakfast. Really recommended!
Da Matteo, Magasingatan, is synonymous with superb coffee that they roast in their own roasting facility. This place has been crowned best café in Sweden 2015 at the White Guide - and I really can understand why! Great staff, good place for people-watching and simply great java.
For any interior-related shopping, head to Artilleriet, Magasingatan 19. You'll find an eclectic and diverse collection of home furnishings, furniture, and accessories. While in buying mood, head to their kitchenware sister-shop called 'The Kitchen'. A store designed to inspire you to the perfect culinary place. Their online-shop is also really great. For someone with a big wallet that is :)
Meet Artilleriets latest project - The Studio. An apartment of three rooms and a kitchen filled to the brim with furniture, textiles and art.. A smart way of product placement in a real, dream home. Brilliant!
We are many to have a hidden Pinterest board of wedding-goals. My dreamy virtual board sort of came true when walking into the Zetterberg Couture store at Södra Larmgatan 2. DREAM IRL. Bridal and evening dresses of minimalistic lace and elegant details.
And then we have Floramor & Krukatös.. a pottery and flower shop located in a beautiful old building in central Gothenburg. Really one of the most beautiful shops in Gothenburg!
All photos was taken with my iPhone. Let me know if there's any stores missed out from this intensive 24h trip! Would love to visit next time!
