New Year


I’m thinking of flying to Gothenburg for New Year.

What happens on New Years Eve? Where does everyone gather?

Also looking for a 4/5 star modern hotel as close to the centre as possible. It’s a treat so cost is not an issue.

If money is not an option I would suggest Avalalon or Elite Plaza, both are nice hotels in really good locations. Gothia Towers is good as well but a bit too large for some people's taste.

On new years eve a lot of people go outside to look at the GP fireworks around 5pm. Then around midnight people tend to get together a places with a view like Skansen kronan, the bridges, Masthuggskyrkan etc. Then there are more fireworks and lots of toasts! Most people spend the evening together with friend s but I guess there are events around clubs and hotels as well. If you want to have dinner at one of the nicer restaurants it's best to book as soon a spossibl.

Heaven 23 at Gothia Towers has a nice view. gothiatowers.com/en/…

Remember to dress warm if you plan to spend time outside on new years eve.
