Just near the Haga, short walk up the hill. Beautiful view of the city. Lots of benches to sit and take in the view. Also very good spot for a picnic or reading in the grass when the sun is shining.

Climb the steps to get a great view over Gothenburg. There is a cafe and some benches up there. Not sure what the fort is now but it’s nice to look at.

The climb to the top is worth it for the view - you can see the city in all directions! The fortress at the top is worth a look too. Worth the effort if you are visiting Haga

If you are in Göteborg than you have to visit this place. Just close to old town Haga, you have to climb the stairs and you can enjoy beautiful view over the city. We had luck with the weather so we really enjoyed the view.
