Spent a few hours wandering through this area. Most shops seem to be on one street but there’s posts to see and we bought quite a lot of souvenirs, Christmas decorations and hats and gloves to keep the cold at bay. There are some lovely...More

It's amazing how this historical district - previously an industrial area - has transformed into a prestigious tourism site. It now houses quaint shops and eateries housed in the old but very well-maintained and refurbished buildings.

One of only two areas in the city that isn't your standard shopping centre. Really enjoyed walking around the district but go in the next year as tacky souvenir shops already sprouting up. The cinnamon buns are as good as they say!

Nice little cafés and shops then a walk up to Skansen Kronan is one of the best things to do i. Gothenburg! Look out for the mice house display on a side street 😉😁

The Haga is close to the Gothenburg city centre. It is basically the old workers district of the city and once was poor and run down with a bad reputation. It has now been transformed. It has cobblestone streets, wooden houses and its streets now...More

The shops open about 10. I don't know exactly about the cafes, but I'm sure at least a few open earlier.

Hello, There are no shops open on Sunday. Sunday is usually closed for enjoying the day. Walking up to the top of the hill in Haga is nice.

Haga Park Boat Tour (5 Replies)
Hello, I am planning to go to Haga Park. But, I was not able to find a map of the route the "Hop on & Hop off boats" take. I was wondering if you could list the stops this under this comment. Also, may I use the Stockholm pass on his boat? Thanks

Do you by any chance know of you can use the Stockholm pass on this?

Hat shop on Haga Nygata (3 Replies)
We visited Gothenburg about six months ago and found a really lovely hat shop on Haga Nygata that sold beautifully crafted hats for children (as well as for adults). I remember it being near the Sjobaren restaurant. Unfortunately, I don't remember the name of the place and would like to get another hat for my son. If anyone could find their contact information (email, website, phone number, etc.) It would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!

I will be in Istanbul in mid November. Please suggest a good roof top restaurant for dinner with a view of the blue mosque or Haga Sophia in the background. Thanks.
