With Christmas fast approaching, thoughts turn to presents and the dilemmas of what to buy friends and loved ones. Head to Gothenburg, the Christmas city for some unique and unusual gifts which will be sure to make an impression this year.
Design lovers will enjoy the new London-inspired Christmas Design Market housed in the Pustervik arena. It’s the ideal place for those looking for one-off gifts including clothes, art, crafts and designs from Gothenburg’s hottest designers.
To impress art aficionados visit the Röda Sten Art Centre close to the harbour entrance. It’s an imposing former boiler house and brings ‘industrial chic’ to Christmas shopping. All of the items available to buy have been created by local designers, artists and art students – the perfect opportunity to find something really unique and one off. There’s even a workshop where you can create your own Christmas decorations.
No Christmas trip to Gothenburg would be complete without a visit to Liseberg – the biggest Christmas Market in the whole of Scandinavia. You will be amazed by the 700 Christmas trees and five million fairy lights! This is the ultimate Swedish Christmas shopping experience, with over 70 stalls to choose from you are guaranteed to find something for even the trickiest of people.
